Spain’s Enagas to Mothball New LNG Import Terminal, WGI Says

May 2 (Bloomberg) -- Enagas SA, operator of Spain’s natural-gas grid, plans to mothball a liquefied fuel import terminal as soon as construction is complete, World Gas Intelligence reported, citing an unidentified Enagas official.

The 7 billion-cubic-meter-a-year El Musel facility in northern Spain, the country’s seventh LNG site, will be shut as soon as it’s finished in December due to low demand for the fuel, according to the report.

Enagas didn’t immediately answer a phone call seeking comment.
