Case Study: Adriatic LNG Terminal (Installation and Operation)
The Adriatic LNG Terminal is the world's first offshore gravity-based structure for unloading, storing and regasifying liquefied natural gas (LNG). It is located 15km offshore Porto Levante, in the northern Adriatic Sea and is set on the sea floor in about 29m of water. It is connected to the Italian national network of gas distribution by a pipeline that runs underwater from the facility.
There are two large LNG tanks encased in concrete that store the LNG, which is unloaded from LNG vessels. A regasification plant is located on the main deck. This plant supplies about 10% of Italy's natural gas requirements. The project site is notated as ALNG on the map below.
