Liquefied petroleum gas company Flogas Britain plans to construct a gas pipeline into what could become England’s largest above-ground LPG storage terminal at Avonmouth, near Bristol.
Flogas estimates the facility, with room to store 34,564t of LPG, will be operational by summer 2022. The pipeline in turn is expected to be ready in 2024.
The Avonmouth site is currently being converted from a National Grid liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility to a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) storage terminal.
Starting at Bristol Port, the pipeline will largely follow existing routes through predominantly industrial areas to the Flogas Avonmouth storage facility. The twin pipeline will run underground for most of its course.
It could enable up to 20,000t of commodity to be discharged from a ship in 24 hours.
According to Flogas Britain, once operational, the site will facilitate the decarbonisation of off-grid Britain.
The company has invested £100 million in the Avonmouth storage terminal.
