The European Investment Bank (EIB) has granted a long term loan of EUR 85 million to Fluxys LNG, the owner and operator of the terminal for liquefied natural gas in Zeebrugge, Belgium. The loan reflects one of the EIB’s primary objectives: the support of the development of large infrastructure projects, so-called Trans-European Network Projects. It is expected that this investment will further increase, secure and diversify gas supplies to the European Union as imported gas from Zeebrugge can easily be moved to the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Luxembourg and France. In addition, the loan enables Fluxys, the parent company of Fluxys LNG, to optimise its resources for other infrastructure projects in its gas transport and storage activities.
