Gas & LNG

Gas forms a substantial part of the energy mix that keeps modern society running. The gas market is subject to economic, public and political influences. Operators need to account for market fluctuation, price volatility, legislation, and political climate to find profitable and viable energy solutions.

Natural gas storage in the EU - projects for the European Commission

Securing natural gas supply to EU member states is a matter of significant importance for the EU. The increasing import dependency of natural gas in the EU coupled with increased demand for flexibility in gas markets has made natural gas storage a central issue in the EU’s energy debate regarding market development and security of supply.

Norsea Gas Terminal in Emden, Germany

The Gassco Emden Project - Extensive revamp of vital onshore gas receiving terminal

After more than 30 years of operation, the Norsea Gas Terminal in Emden, Germany, needed to be refurbished to maintain safe and reliable gas transportation. The major scope of work included new receiving-, gas heating-, utilities- and process facilities. Ramboll carried out the FEED study proposing the technical solution.

In Yemen Ramboll conducted a study estimating the current and future availability of natural gas until 2025

Gas utilisation study, Yemen

Ramboll Oil & Gas became part of a comprehensive international project to replace oil, the main source of energy in Yemen, with natural gas.

Natural gas storage facility in Etzel, Northern Germany

The national gas markets in Europe are changing rapidly. Continuous liberalisation, dependency on gas imports from outside the EU, and increasing consumer demand have stepped up the need for strategic as well as commercial storage facilities. Ramboll has been deeply involved in these developments since the 1990s and in 2008 we assisted Etzel-Kavernenbetriebsgesellschaft mbH & CO. KG with the development of the Etzel salt cavern storage facility near Wilhelmshaven, Germany.

Liquefied natural gas takes up about 1/600th the volume of natural gas in its gaseous state which makes it possible to transport it from remote locations to markets worldwide

LNG import and regasification facility in Finland

Ramboll Oil & Gas has performed a feasibility study investigating the possibilities to construct an LNG import and regasification plant in Finland.

The study involves investigation into novel onshore and offshore techniques for offloading and regasification of LNG with special consideration to navigating in the narrow Finnish archipelago and to the often cold climate.


Ramboll’s LNG expertise also includes economic market studies, technical concepts for import of LNG and layout studies

LNG terminal in Estonia

Port of Tallinn Ltd (AS Tallinna Sadam), the port authority in Estonia, is considering the possibility of placing a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) receiving terminal at a location in either Muuga Harbour or Paldiski South Harbour. The purpose of the LNG terminal is to receive liquefied natural gas from ships, store the liquid in storage tanks, vaporise the LNG, and then deliver the natural gas into a high pressure distribution pipeline or to a local major gas consumer.
