The small-scale LNG carriers loading service

Fosmax LNG actively contributes to the development of LNG for mobility, an economical and environmentally friendly fuel that is fully in line with the energy transition.

Loading small-scale LNG carriers from the terminal jetty is an essential link in the LNG supply chain. It also enables LNG to be supplied to islands that are not connected to the natural gas network.


Since September 2019, the Fos Cavaou terminal has been adapted to offer a more efficient service that is open to a wide range of vessels.
