5 bcm/year Italian LNG terminal faces 7-mth maintenance outage

(Montel) Italy’s OLT 5bcm/year LNG terminal in Toscana will be shut down for unplanned maintenance from early April to the end of October, the company said late on Monday.

The maintenance involved the substitution of a bearing on the floating storage and regasifiaction unit’s anchoring system, it added in a statement.

Late last year, OLT increased its annual regasification capacity to 5bcm/year from 3.75bcm.

Currently, it covers almost 8% of Italy’s total gas consumption.
