LNG is natural gas cooled down to below -160 degrees Celsius to be transported in a liquid state, so that it can be flexibly imported from a wide range of supply countries. Data are published by Gas Infrastructure Europe. The map provides information on LNG terminals in the EU, operational and planned, while the bar chart shows the capacity in billion m3. There are 11 EU Member States with operating LNG terminals, with total annual capacity of 160 billion m3, accounting for around a quarter of gas imports to the EU in 2020.
