Dutch gas grid operator Gasunie is exploring options to expand liquefied natural gas import capacity at two sites in the northern Netherlands after a recent study determined that a new floating LNG terminal in the southern port of Terneuzen would not be feasible.

Exploring new LNG terminal construction at Eemshaven and the Gate terminal in Rotterdam is part of a broader package of proposed measures to increase LNG import capacity in the Netherlands as Gasunie looks to replace Russian gas imports curtailed after the invasion of Ukraine.
