Dutch gas network operator Gasunie and tank storage service provider Vopak said on Monday that the expansion of their Gate liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Rotterdam has begun.

The new infrastructure is expected to aid the use of LNG as a transport fuel and is expected to be operational towards the end of the first half of 2016.

Gate receives, stores, regasifies and delivers LNG into northwest Europe's grid.

Gate terminal will have break-bulk infrastructure and services added, which will help split up large LNG shipments into smaller quantities.

Shell is the launching customer for the expansion and has committed to buy capacity from Gate terminal.
