Hengeler Mueller represents Deutsche ReGas successfully before the Federal Administrative Court in summary proceedings concerning the LNG terminal in the port of Mukran (Rügen)

On 7 June 2024, the Federal Administrative Court dismissed several summary proceedings against the immission control permit for the Energie-Terminal "Deutsche Ostsee" of Deutsche ReGas in the port of Mukran on the island of Rügen. The appeals, including those from the municipality of Binz, are inadmissible according to the decisions of the 7th Senate (case no. 7 VR 4.24 and others). The alleged safety risks are not discernible. According to the court's assessment, the appropriate safety distance around the regasification vessels (Floating Storage and Regasification Units) was correctly determined during the authorisation procedure.

In a permit issued on 9 April 2024, the State authority StALU VP approved Deutsche ReGas GmbH & Co. KGaA (Deutsche ReGas) for the construction and operation of an LNG terminal in the port of Mukran. The applicants had filed an objection to this and applied to the Federal Administrative Court to order the suspensive effect of their objections. Deutsche ReGas' LNG terminal is a priority project for security of supply in accordance with the LNG Acceleration Act. The Federal Administrative Court is the court of first and last instance in disputes regarding the approval of the terminal.

Hengeler Mueller represents Deutsche ReGas in the proceedings before the Federal Administrative Court and advises it comprehensively on the realization of LNG terminals at their sites in Mukran and Lubmin, including in particular on the legal aspects of authorisation and regulation, on the financing of the company, on cooperations as well as on operational contracts.
