Floating Storage & Regasification Unit has a different feature than other shore LNG Terminals. Storage and regasification of Liquefied Natural Gas imported by vessels is provided by operating the Floating Storage & Gasification Unit ("FSRU") berthed at the Terminal jetty. The FSRU has the ability to regasify the liquid stored in its tanks utilizing the existing vaporizer units.

“ETKİ” LNG Terminal constitutes a new uninterrupted source of supply for the Natural Gas Combined Cycle Plants, which are planned to be installed in the region, in order to meet the increasing energy needs. Within this context, the terminal location is at a perfect place for sending out the regasified LNG to the national grid and ETKİ LNG Terminal provides additional flexibility in natural gas supply to the national transportation system.

ETKİ LNG Terminal plays a critical role in meeting seasonal fluctuations in natural gas consumption. Especially at peak consumption intervals, the main purpose is to protect the system pressure profile and provide natural gas supply security by sending out the maximum amount of gas from the terminal to the system. When needed, it is possible to supply natural gas from different sources without being dependent on pipelines, providing additional supply to the national grid in accordance with the storage and regasification capacities.

ETKİ LNG Terminal, being in a region easily accessible from the open sea without increasing the tanker traffic in the straits, aims to provide a new natural gas supply source, additional natural gas storage and regasification capacity to the country. ETKİ LNG Terminal will enable natural gas imports from different supply sources, create daily and hourly additional supply flexibility in the system during peak consumption days, provide continuous supply to the national grid and contribute to supply security both in residential and industrial consumption and in electricity sector.
