About The Event
YPN AGM: Tour of LNG Grain

A fantastic opportunity to tour Europe’s largest LNG importation terminal and to listen to presentations about the facility and how to get the best out of your career in the gas industry.

PLEASE NOTE this event is exclusively for IGEM YPN members and YPN eligible non-members (aged 18 to 35 years)

Grain LNG is of strategic national importance to the UK energy infrastructure and security of supply. It is the largest terminal in Europe and the eighth largest in the world by tank capacity, with a site that spans over 600 acres in total.

The facility was built in 1980 as a Peak Shave Plant to provide extra capacity to the UK system during periods of peak demands. In 2005 Grain LNG converted to become a LNG Importation Terminal with the ability to offload LNG ships from around the world and the capacity to supply in the region of 4% of the UK’s gas demand. After rapid expansion, including a second and third phase, Grain LNG now has the capacity to deliver 20% of UK demand.
