France to build new LNG terminal

International Business News – According to the “Echo” report on July 30, France is dealing with the risk of Russia’s interruption of natural gas supply in multiple ways.

On July 29, French authorities authorized Total Energy to build an LNG receiving terminal in Le Havre. After the terminal is completed, it can inject 5 billion cubic meters of natural gas into France every year, accounting for about 60% of France’s natural gas imports from Russia in 2021. The project is expected to start this fall and be put into use in September 2023. It is reported that France currently has four LNG receiving terminals, two of which are located on the southeast coast and two on the northwest coast.
