Port Meridian

Port Meridian (UK) and E.ON GSA – Meridian LNG acquired Port Meridian in October 2012 as a substantially permitted FSRU natural gas receiving terminal with easy access to the highly liquid and deep UK National Transmission System (NTS) in the North West of England.

In October 2012, Meridian LNG purchased the UK Port Meridian project from Höegh LNG. Port Meridian is a proposed LNG import project designed for a Höegh LNG FSRU to be connected by subsea pipeline to the national grid at Barrow-in-Furness. It is well engineered with all material permits in hand.

Located off the North West of England, next to the depleting Morcambe Bay gas fields, Port Meridian offers access to highly liquid and deep UK markets with interconnections to NW Europe. Port Meridian is designed to deliver interruptible or non-interruptible volumes directly into the deregulated UK market at an annual volume of 3.4 million mtpa via its own National Transmission System interconnection. Daily maximum peak supply from the Höegh FSRU is rated at 750 mmscfd.

On April 23rd 2015 Meridian LNG and E.ON Global Commodities SE announced a 20 year Gas Sale Agreement for the full nameplate capacity at Port Meridian. All natural gas delivered by Meridian LNG into the UK via Port Meridian is now to be sold on an exclusive basis to EON.
