Spain’s ‘oversized’ gas grid still seeking funding

The Spanish gas sector is determined to develop new liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals despite the fact its existing infrastructure is under capacity, according to a new report. 

Spain has 87,699 km of pipelines connected to 50 gas plants that operated at less than 17% of capacity between 2011 to 2018m, says the report, which was first published by Spanish news site El Diario. 

In addition, the country has the most regasification plants in Europe, with six currently operating and one more suspended in the northern region of Asturias.
