The facility is planned to serve 36 RoRo and RoPax dock – Hamburg Port Authority and Linde Group are promoting the use of LNG and are currently compiling a feasibility study on the commercial use of LNG in the Port of Hamburg. Bomin reported that as part of their joint venture with Linde AG will cooperate to develop an LNG bunkering facility at Germany’s Port of Hamburg. The project will be composed of a storage terminal and refueling infrastructure situated at Bomin sister firm Oil tanking's premises at the port. The decision to go ahead with the project was made following the completion of a feasibility study by Linde and the Hamburg Port Authority. The Port Authority itself has reportedly been a key supporter of the project, and has announced it plans to operate an LNG-fueled vessel of its own by 2014. – Ferry operator AG Ems is building the Germany’s first combined passenger and cargo ferry with LNG propulsion. The ship will operate year-round between Cuxhaven and Heligoland Netherlands – The EU through TENT-T supports a project of LNG bunkering at Rotterdam with a small-scale satellite terminal in Skarvikshamnen, Sweden (Gothenburg).

She sails between Stockholm and Turku in Finland – Gasum has made a decision to build LNG terminal in Inkoo and has opted for Fjusö area in Joddböle. The terminal would be provided with marine facilities that also allow the loading of LNG bunker vessels and small LNG carriers engaged on coastal distribution. The terminal is not expected to commence until 2018 Estonia – Port of Tallinn, the leading port in the country is likely to delay providing LNG bunkering due to lack of demandThe infrastructure could be in place by 2015, but it seems will be on their agenda 2017-2018 Lithuania/Latvia – LNG terminal in Klaipeda is under development and could supply LNG for bunkering. Poland – Polskie LNG is building an LNG import terminal at Świnoujście for 2015 commencement. This terminal has a potential to supply LNG as bunker for shipping 9 Energy security is a very important issue in the Baltic countries. No large natural gas suppliers in Eastern Europe, so Russia is currently a dominant supplier. LNG provides an excellent way to transport gas to the countries, however LNG import terminals have to be built. There are a number of LNG terminals are being built, planned or considered to be constructed in the Baltic countries. These terminals will also be equipped with smaller terminals for local LNG distribution including LNG bunkering facilities. Talinn Helsinki Klaipeda Turku Świnoujście Tornio Inkoo
