The regasification Terminal “FSRU Toscana” was realized using safe and well-proven technologies, using subsystems and components that are largely used in various sectors of the oil and gas industry.
The steps of the regasification cycle are:
Unloading and storage of the LNG in the regasification Terminal’s tanks
During operation, the LNG is unloaded by direct transfer, through four loading arms, from the LNG carriers moored to the Terminal (“side-by-side” configuration).
Regasification – LNG is reconverted into natural gas
The stored LNG is then sent to the regasification module, where it undergoes an increase in temperature and it is brought back to the gaseous state.
Gas sendout in the national grid
Gas is sent to a depth of 120 meters, through two risers, and it is then injected into an undersea pipeline which is part of the national grid.
