In April 2022, Elpedison announced it was planning to install a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) offshore of Thessaloniki, and had submitted an application for a new independent natural gas system (INGS) license to Greece’s Regulatory Authority for Energy (RAE). The Thessaloniki FSRU would connect to onshore and underwater pipelines with Elpedison’s power plants in Thessaloniki, one existing and one under design, as well as with existing pipelines in the area. Elpedison said it was targeting a 2025 start date, subject to approvals and a final investment decision, and the FSRU would be able to deliver up to 20 million cubic meters per day, which equates to 7.3 bcm/y.[1]
