Dutch and German utility firms are not willing to commit to take capacity, said 4Gas Chief Operating Officer Joost Droge, who added that the company had no further plans for projects in the Netherlands.

Droge said 4Gas and the Port of Rotterdam had agreed to cancel the so-called LionGas project, which would have competed with the Gate LNG facility now under construction by Vopak and Gasunie.

In 2006, 4Gas secured a land use agreement with the Port of Rotterdam Authority for leasing two adjacent plots of prime development land at the mouth of the port. 4Gas also received a permit from Rotterdam to construct the LionGas LNG terminal on the two plots.
