First gas flows from Germany's new LNG terminal | DW News

The opening of Germany's first LNG import terminal is a milestone in the country's plans to find alternate sources of natural gas. The terminal, floating off the North Sea coast, was built in a record time of just under 10 months. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz greenlit the LNG projects on February 27 this year — just days after Russian President Vladimir Putin launched the invasion of Ukraine. The facility opened off of Wilhelmshaven is slated to feed an estimated 6% of Germany's gas demand into the energy grid each year.
