German chancellor backs plans for 'one or more' LNG terminals


BERLIN, Jan 31 (Reuters) - German Chancellor Olaf Scholz supports plans to build one or more liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals in the country, a government spokesperson said on Monday, amid concerns about Germany's dependence on pipeline gas from Russia.

Europe's LNG terminals are currently operating at 71% capacity, an economy ministry spokesperson said in the same regular news conference.
