FSRU Toscana is the most recent of Italy’s three regasification terminals.

The cargo’s receiver—DufEnergy Trading SA, an international, multi-energy trading company based in Switzerland—is a new customer for RasGas.

The FSRU Toscana, which is one of Italy’s main regasification projects, lies 22 km off the Italian coast between Livorno and Pisa. The terminal is permanently anchored to the seabed through a mooring system, with a single point of rotation at the bow.

“RasGas looks forward to continuing our support of DufEnergy in meeting the growing demand in Italy—and throughout Europe—for cleaner energy in the form of LNG. The arrival of our LNG cargo at FSRU Toscana represents another positive development in RasGas' global operations,” said Khalid Sultan R. Al Kuwari, chief marketing and shipping officer, RasGas.

“Receiving this cargo at the FSRU Toscana regasification terminal is an important milestone, as LNG is a key source of supply to the Italian natural gas market,” said Jean-Christian Heintz, head of LNG at DufEnergy.
