Storing vital products with care

Gate terminal

Gate terminal at the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam is the first and only Dutch Liquified Natural Gas  terminal. We are a joint venture of Gasunie and Vopak and provide the supply and transit of LNG for our customers. LNG arrives by large vessels from almost all continents.

The product is loaded back into barges or trucks for export or it is converted into natural gas after which it enters the European distribution network via pipelines.
