The tender procedure to all operators in the LNG market for the peak shaving service, organised by Adriatic LNG for Italy’s Ministry of Economic Development, has been completed.
The LNG market operator that won the service will make available to Snam Rete Gas a quantity of 70 000 m3 of LNG, which will be loaded in to the Adriatic LNG terminal’s tanks during the second half of October 2018.
Peak shaving is one of the measures included in the ‘Emergency Plan’ set by the Ministry of Economic Development to ensure security of supply to Italy’s national gas system for next winter.
In case of emergency, a reduction or interruption of one or more supply sources, or an exceptional peak of gas demand that can significantly affect supplies, this service will allow regasification of LNG stored in the tanks of Adriatic’s terminal and delivery of the gas into the national grid.
Within the limits of the quantities of LNG delivered, the service will be available to Snam Rete Gas from 1 January 2019 to 31 March 2019. Remaining gas will then be returned to the market operator in April 2019.
