Flogas Britain has taken the much sought after ‘first-fill’ from the new Isle of Grain LNG terminal in Kent. The National Grid-owned, Isle of Grain facility is the largest LNG terminal in Europe, with a capacity of 15 million tonnes per year, and unrivalled access to the European gas market. The privilege of the first-fill is in recognition of Flogas’ importance to the National Grid as their biggest LNG customer, and reward for setting the pace of LNG distribution in the UK.
Rob McCord, Head of LNG at Flogas said: “The Isle of Grain facility is vital to our strategic growth, and to the growth of the LNG sector in the UK. To be offered first-fill is a real honour and one in which we are extremely proud.”
Flogas currently leads the field in converting high volume oil burning businesses to LNG, and has designed and developed the largest LNG conversion project ever seen in the UK. The Isle of Grain facility will allow Flogas to build on its current success, and continue to innovate and lead the LNG sector.
Such is the importance of LNG to Flogas – one of the UK’s leading liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) providers – it has created a specialist LNG team, dedicated to offering LNG solutions to UK businesses.
