Natural gas company Gasunie and tanker storage firm Vopak announced on Tuesday that they have made a final decision to go ahead with a €800m investment to build the country’s first liquid gas terminal.
The terminal will be located in Rotterdam and means that natural gas can be imported by ship. At present natural gas can only be transported to the Netherlands by pipeline from Norway and Russia.
The terminal means that gas can also be imported from north Africa and the Middle East from 2011 when the new terminal is due to be operational.
