Storing vital products with care

Around the world, we connect the supply of and demand for vital products and resources. Energy that allows people to heat their homes and travel the world. Food for a growing planet. And chemicals for companies to use. Products that are vital to people's lives. We ensure the safe, efficient and clean storage of such products. The global energy transition, the growing world population, and all the new possibilities of emerging technologies make this a very interesting time to be part of Vopak's business. If this global working environment appeals to you and you have the right skills and mindset, then apply now to become a part of our Vopak team. 

Division Vopak LNG
The Division LNG is one of the five business units within Vopak: it is the youngest and smallest team but with the ambition to be the growth pillar of Vopak. At this moment in time, LNG is the main fuel facilitating the energy transition in many countries in the world, particularly in Asia and China as these countries are converting from coal to gas and presumably from gas to hydrogen.

The LNG Division of Vopak operates four terminals in joint ventures, of which two are land based and the other two are floating storage. The onshore terminals are Gate terminal in Rotterdam and Terminal Altamira in Mexico. In Port Qasim in Pakistan we run a floating regasification terminal and in Colombia we have a share in the SPEC terminal in Cartagena. Next to our four operational terminals we are engaged in several projects like in China, Germany, Hong Kong, Australia and Singapore. We are aiming for expanding our footprint in LNG infrastructure business worldwide and foresee significant growth for the coming years.

It is our challenge to explain well to all of our stakeholders how LNG can play a positive role in the energy transition and to continuously find innovative solutions to reduce our environmental footprint at our terminals.
