The new Gate LNG Terminal in the Port of Rotterdam supplies a network of natural gas pipelines, and has facilities to reload LNG into ships, LNG containers or tank trucks. This allows the liquefied natural gas to be distributed by inland tanker, short sea tanker or truck to areas that lack pipelines for the supply of natural gas. The demand for LNG is growing and the terminal is now operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We spoke with Cees Boon, sector coordinator harbour master policy department at the Port of Rotterdam, and Stefaan Adriaens, commercial manager at Gate Terminal, about the current challenges and opportunities relating to the new LNG bunkering terminal and their thoughts on the future of LNG as a widely used marine fuel.
