Port of Pakrineeme is constructed for floating storage regasification units (FSRUs) and LNG carriers (LNGCs). The port is part of the national strategic infrastructure for ensuring Estonia's ability to import natural gas independently.

The technical specifications of the Pakrineeme jetty, built into the sea, allow to receive the majority of the nearly fifty FSRUs of the world. The harbour is easily accessible for ships and is basically free of ice.

The jetty was completed in the spring of 2023 and the harbour officially started operations on 1 January 2024. Port of Pakrineeme is located in Northern Estonia by the Lahepere Bay on the coast of the Pakri Peninsula.

Port of Tallinn provides port services at the Port of Pakrineeme and is not the owner of the port. Port of Tallinn ensures readiness to receive ships at the LNG quay and is responsible for the administration and maintenance of the infrastructure of the port, marine traffic management and, if necessary, pollution control manpower. The infrastructure of the Port of Pakrinemee and the responsibility for compliance with its requirements belong to the port owner Estonian Stockpiling Agency. Port of Tallinn will not acquire additional assets and is only responsible for operating the port.
