Mainly, the Gibraltar ministry of education, heritage, environment, energy and climate change addressed at a statement that the LNG carrier Coral Methane

rehearsed its berthing procedures at the new terminal at the end of the North Mole

The testing enabled the staff to test the facility's loading sector and safety systems it acquires.

Moreover, John Cortes, Gibraltar’s minister for environment, energy and climate change noted that the testing was successful and the procedures almost occurred in the most realistic manner possible. He continued stating that the tests are to continue in the upcoming weeks.


Shell is the developer of Gibraltar's small-scale LNG facility under a contract that was signed during 2016. Also, the facility is embodied by five storage tanks with a total capacity of 5.000 cubic metres and a jetty for small - scale LNG carriers.

The latter, has potential for LNG bunkering operations at the facility in the years coming.

The regasification unit will be operated by Shell’s unit Gasnor.
