Greece inaugurated on November 22 the upgraded liquefied natural gas terminal (LNG) in Revithoussa, operated by gas grid operator DESFA, in the Greek region of Attica, west of Athens.

Following a packed ceremony in a makeshift tent on the artificial Revithoussa Island in the Gulf of Megara accessible by small boats from the nearby shore, Greece’s Energy Minister Giorgos Stathakis told New Europe that the project will boost Greek and European energy security.

“Today’s project is of strategic importance because it is essential the largest entrance gate of LNG in the Balkans and with the Balkan interconnections it’s transformed into a essential entry point with an export capacity of approximately two-thirds of the natural gas that will be supplied to this terminal,” Stathakis said. “Therefore for us it’s the most important project that advances the diversification of natural gas sources,” he added.
