VTTI and IKAV have entered a consortium to acquire majority ownership of Terminale GNL Adriatico Srl, also known as Adriatic LNG, which operates the regasification terminal located 15 km off the coastline of Veneto region in Italy.

Adriatic LNG terminal has a technical regasification capacity of 9.6 billion m3/y of natural gas (equal to half of Italy’s current LNG import capacity), supplying approximately 14% of the country’s national consumption of natural gas.

The closing of the transaction is expected in the 2H24.
