World class facility. World class service

Primary capacity

We are the leading LNG importation terminal in the UK. Our world class facility delivers the highest standards of performance and services which are highly resilient, flexible and dependable.

 

All of the primary capacity at the terminal is fully contracted to our customers BP/Sonatrach, Centrica, Sonatrach, Total, Uniper and Ibrerdrola.

 

 

 

 

Additional capacity from 2025

The UK government predicts the need for up to 26GW of new gas fired power plant by 2030 with import dependency set to exceed 76% by the same period. LNG is already well established as a vital element of the UK’s gas supplies and together with the predicted additional growth in demand, LNG will become an increasingly important part of the UK energy mix.

Grain LNG has a proven track record of delivering on its promises; we successfully commissioned our previous capacity expansion phases on time and to budget while continuing to deliver a high standard of service and meeting the daily operational needs of our customers.

Expression of Interest

Given the evolving market situation, Grain LNG is delighted to be able to offer additional importation capacity and LNG shippers are invited to register their interest to participate in our Open Season.

Up to 350 GWh/d (8.3 mtpa) of redelivery capacity, 390,000 m3 of associated storage and over 100 berthing slots could be made available at the Grain LNG terminal in 2025.   The capacity on offer is a combination of new build and existing capacity which comes out of contract in 2025.  The expansion will increase the size of the Grain terminal, located on the Isle of Grain in Kent, to approximately 1.2 million cubic metres.
