TotalEnergies announced the commissioning of the Cape Ann, its floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) for liquefied natural gas (LNG) located in the Port of Le Havre.
The terminal injected its first megawatt-hours (MWh) of gas into the grid operated by GRTgaz, using LNG from Norway.
TotalEnergies has contracted 50 per cent of the terminal’s annual capacity of around 5 billion cubic metres, to supply it with LNG from its global portfolio.
The remaining capacity will be marketed according to rules approved by the regulator.
Key figures of the Cape Ann include:
- Maximum regasification capacity: 5 billion cubic metres per year, or around 10 per cent of French consumption
- Storage capacity: 142,500 cubic metres
- Vessel dimensions: 283 metres x 43.40 metres
- Draught: 50 metres
- Deadweight: 112,457 tonnes
- Lightship: 31,676 tonnes
- Date of first launch: June 2010
- Owner: Höegh LNG

TotalEnergies is the world’s third largest LNG player with a market share of around 12 per cent and a global portfolio of about 50 million tonnes per year thanks to its interests in liquefaction plants in all geographies.
