After four years at the terminal as executive director of operations, Béatrice Prud'homme was appointed chair of Dunkerque LNG on June 30th. She takes over from Marc Girard, who is now off to Chile, where he will manage a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project for the EDF Group.
In recent months, maritime LNG has made significant progress in terms of new projects and new tanker orders. Dunkerque LNG firmly believes in the role it will have to play in reducing greenhouse gas and particle emissions at sea. The company has joined forces with other players in the sector to create a platform promoting LNG as a maritime and river fuel.
Operations and major projects
Gaz-Opale has been operating the LNG terminal since 1 March 2017, date of the official transfer. Since then, 58 Gaz-Opale employees have been working hard to meet the requirements of both customers and the Dunkerque LNG operating licence.
Dunkerque LNG and its territory
From the early stages of the LNG terminal worksite, Dunkerque LNG has been actively involved in local life through numerous partnerships. Now that the terminal is in operation, Dunkerque LNG is refocusing its partnership policy to make it sustainable for the years to come. We met with several local sports clubs who receive a grant. They told us how important these grants are to improving the life of their clubs.
