Eneco has two types for customers for its LNG. Firstly, the grid connected customer base in the Netherlands and Belgium. These customers need gas for heating their homes and tap water or running their industrial installations. In the underground gas grid the regasified LNG and natural pipeline gas from European sources is mixed and delivered to our customers.
Secondly, Eneco sells LNG in its liquid form to customers who are not connected to the gas grid or to customers in the transport sector who use LNG as fuel for their engines. The former group, customers not connected to the gas grid, use LNG/natural gas to substitute more expensive and/or more polluting fuels like gas and fuel oil or LPG. The latter group can use LNG as alternative fuel replacing diesel and maritime oils in trucks, inland vessels, seagoing vessels and ferries. The advantages of LNG as a transport fuel are ample and include lower green house gas, SOx and NOx emissions, noise reductions and lower costs. The LNG is transported from the GATE terminal to its final destination by ship or truck.
