According to Economy Minister Robert Habeck, Germany intends to complete construction and connect the terminal to the gas supply system within 10 months.

The pipeline should be completed by winter so that by the end of the year, but not later than the beginning of 2023, to pass about 10 billion cubic meters of gas. This is almost 10% of gas consumption in Germany.

The regasification floating platform (FSRU) alone will cost about 200,000 euros per day. The federal government wants to spend nearly 3 billion euros on four such floating systems. The FSRU is expected to be based in the North and Baltic Seas, near Brunsbüttel, Wilhelmshaven and Rostock.

Habek also announced the construction of other terminals over the next 10 years. It is planned that in the future this infrastructure can be used to receive the supply of “green” hydrogen.
