DIORIGA GAS FSRU is a national-wide project developed by MOTOR OIL Group. It consists of an LNG Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) to be connected to the National Natural Gas Transmission System (NNGTS). Apart from storage and regasification services and the relevant capacity products, a variety of additional services will be available such as LNG bunkering, LNG truck loading, and bulk breaking services.
This new infrastructure is getting available at a time when a major gas consumption increase is expected in the Greek market due to the commissioning of new natural gas power generation units plus as the transition from lignite – fired power generation is shifting to additional natural gas fired plants. Furthermore, the new LNG entry will assist the diversification of LNG supply sources and enhance the security of supply, creating a competitive natural gas supply environment.
Dioriga Gas will be an open and flexible LNG import infrastructure aiming to:
Enhancing availability of supply and storage of natural gas and hydrogen
Offering Opportunity to secure competitive pricing
Increasing the storage capability of the Greek natural gas system
Serving growing gas markets • New gas – fired power plants (Greece and SE Europe) • Small Scale LNG – breakbulk potential •Expansion of city grids
