The tarjet of the following information is to make it available to all interested  physical or legal people, information on nominal capacity, short and long-term contracted capacity, and the remaining capacity available to be contracted at BBG facilities. These data comply with the provisions of Article 6.5 of Royal Decree 949/2001 of August 3, modified by the second additional provision of Royal Decree 1434/2002 of December 27. 

The information is published monthly for the years 2020 and 2021 and annually for the remaining period.

Available and contracted road tanker loading capacity

On April 1st, 2020, the new aggregated LNG Plant Model has been launched, through which regasification and storage services are provided jointly by all the plants within the Spanish Gas System, and by which the GTS (Gas System Technical Manager) is responsible for the management of LNG regasification and storage contracts. Therefore, as regasification is managed jointly, it is not possible anymore to report the regasification capacity contracted at each plant individually.

The following tables present the data on tank load capacity, contracted capacity broken down into short-term (<2 years) and long-term (> = 2 years) capacity, and finally, the capacity available for new contracts right now.

Additional information

For the purpose of facility usage, regasification contracts for a capacity of less than 1000kWh/day will not be approved.

Furthermore, to prevent excessive operation beyond proper limit that might affect the normal performance of the plant and delivery to other customers, we have implemented the following restrictions:

For unloading service requests, whenever the customer does not have a valid contract for total regasification within 12 months or over, they should deliver a send-out schedule. Contracts shall contain a provision for unloading within 50 days for the agreed capacity. This ensures efficiency in the plant’s activity and for the system as a whole.
