LNG bunker supplier Gas Natural Fenosa calls board meeting over relocating Barcelona HQ

06 Oct 2017 10:48 GMT

Natural gas firm joins list of Catalonia-based institutions deliberating over their future.



LNG bunker supplier Gas Natural Fenosa is mulling whether to move its headquarters - currently in Barcelona - to a location outside Catalonia, according to local reports.

The natural gas company, which has always had links to Catalonia since it was formed in 1843, is said to be holding a board meeting on Friday afternoon to discuss the possibility of a move.

The news comes a day after financial institution Banco Sabadell decided to relocate its head office to Alicante, whilst CaixaBank - Spain's third biggest bank after BBVA and Banco Santander - is set to make a decision about whether to move its headquarters before the end of the week.

Earlier this week, German cruise company Tui Cruises decided to divert two vessels - the Mein Schiff 3 and Mein Schiff 5 - to the port of Valencia instead of Barcelona, thus avoiding making a stop at a city that has been a hotbed of political protests in recent days.

A member of staff at the Barcelona office of shipping agency Intercruises told Bunker Index on Friday that the two Tui Cruises ships normally lift bunkers when they call at the Catalan port.

As previously reported, Gas Natural Fenosa performed the first ever LNG bunker delivery to a ferry in Barcelona on January 29 with its truck-to-ship delivery to the 2010-built Abel Matutes, operated by Balearia.
