Background

Falconara Marittima LNG Terminal is a proposed offshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification terminal, which would be located on an existing oil derrick 16km off the coast of Falconara Marittima, in the Adriatic Sea. The terminal is a proposal of Api Nova Energia, a subsidiary of Gruppo Api.[1][2] The project would cost about $250 million.

In July 2011, Italy's Ministry of Economic Development gave final approval to the project. At that time, the project was expected to go online in 2015.[3][4]

However, there has been no news of the project moving forward since 2011.
