To date, 80% of the regasification capacity of Adriatic LNG’s terminal has been allocated to Edison for a period of 25 years (until 2034). Of the remaining 20%, 12% has been assigned to another gas supplier for 10 years (until 2019).
The remaining capacity of the terminal available today (approximately 600 million cubic meters or about 6 LNG carriers per year), together with any capacity not consumed by its users, is offered on the market through capacity subscription procedures and can be purchased by all parties interested in working in the gas market – both nationally and Europe-wide – on an annual, monthly and spot basis.
