HIGAS LNG Terminal
Avenir LNG is the sole owner of the Higas LNG terminal in the Port of Oristano in Sardinia. The Higas terminal is the first dedicated small scale LNG depot in the Mediterranean.
The terminal has capacity to load up to 8,000 LNG trucks per year (equivalent to 180,000 tons per year), via 2 truck loading bays, for onward distribution to smaller LNG satellite stations. Higas distributes LNG via roadtanker both directly to industrial users converting to cleaner and cheaper fuels, and to gas distributions companies across the island.
LNG is stored in 6 horizonal low-pressure cryogenic tanks, which gives high availability to meet customer demand. The facility is further complemented by connection to a natural gas pipeline system that will allow Natural Gas to be distributed to local industry.
