Italy: Livorno LNG plant approved

An offshore LNG terminal project near Livorno, Italy, has received key environmental authorisation after months of delays and lobbying, according to Yvonne Barton, vice-
president of CrossGas, a project participant. Carrier delivery and construction is expected to occur sometime this year, with first delivery by 2005. Italian pipeline company OLT Offshore and fellow Italians Falck plan to install the unit about 12 miles from Livorno. OLT has signed a deal with the city of Livorno to supply gas from the 3-bil cu m/year terminal, which can be expanded to 6Bcm a year. OLT and Falck have tried to attract participants to receive gas, including negotiations with several municipalities in Tuscany.
