Elengy reaches a milestone in LNG logistics in France

Elengy has reached a milestone at one of its LNG terminals: for the first time in France, an ISO-container loaded with liquefied natural gas (LNG) at Elengy’s terminal in Fos Cavaou was transported by rail from the Miramas platform in the South of France and delivered to a service station near Milan, in Italy.

This mode of transport offers several benefits : it allows large volumes of LNG to be transported, it reduces the cost of transport and it facilitates access to LNG in certain regions, while significantly reducing the polluting emissions associated to its transport.

Carried out in partnership with Total and with the support of the Région Sud and the Grand Port Maritime de Marseille, this first loading operation of an ISO-container transported by rail made it possible to validate the entire logistics chain. Elengy is thus accelerating the transformation of its LNG terminals into multimodal hubs to offer even greater flexibility to the market and facilitate access to liquefied natural gas.

Objective: multimodal, multiservice and multi-energy LNG terminals
This test illustrates Elengy's commitment to developing the use of LNG as fuel, an essential solution for decarbonising heavy mobility. After the LNG truck loading service opened in 2013 and the bunkering loading service, the teams are innovating once again with the implementation of a rail connection, which positions Elengy’s LNG terminals as true multimodal hubs with infrastructures at the heart of the development of LNG mobility.

Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants

Register Now

Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
