ADNOC completes first LNG shipment to Germany


ADNOC and RWE Aktiengesellschaft (RWE) have delivered the first shipment of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from Abu Dhabi to the Elbehafen floating LNG terminal in Brunsbüttel, Germany.

Produced by ADNOC Gas at Das Island, Abu Dhabi, the shipment of 137,000 cu m of LNG is the commissioning cargo for the new floating LNG terminal in Brunsbüttel and the first LNG cargo to be shipped to Germany from the Middle East.

This landmark cargo, following the inaugural ammonia shipment in October 2022, furthers cooperation on energy security, decarbonisation and lower-carbon fuels between the UAE and Germany. The cargo is sufficient to produce approximately 900m Kwh of electricity, enough to supply around 250,000 German homes for a year.

Ahmed Alebri, Acting CEO of ADNOC Gas, said: “The successful delivery of the Middle East’s first LNG cargo to Germany demonstrates how the UAE is continuing to work closely with our strategic partners in responsibly providing secure, sustainable and affordable energy supplies. The global demand for energy is increasing and as we build on the strong economic, energy security and climate action ties between our two nations, ADNOC Gas stands ready to provide further shipments of this key transition fuel to our partner, RWE and German industry.”
