Skangass debuts LNG loading
On January 2, LNG was loaded aboard Coral Energy, the Skangass time chartered ship, at the Fluxys’ LNG Terminal in the Port of Zeebrugge, Belgium. This was the first Skangass loading operation at this port under the recent concluded two-year contract signed with energy company Eni for the supply of LNG.
The recent agreement entered into between Skangass and Eni is one of the largest small scale agreements for LNG. It secures the small scale LNG availability in the Nordic markets and supports EU programs for clean industry and transportation sector.
Coral Energy is carrying the LNG to Skangass’ LNG receiving terminal in Lysekil, Sweden. The LNG will be further distributed to clients in Sweden by pipeline or trucks.
Skangass is continuously developing the LNG infrastructure in the Nordic markets. A new receiving terminal is under construction in Pori, Finland that will be completed in 2016. The company has also decided to invest in an LNG terminal in the port of Röyttä in Tornio, Finland, whose construction will be completed in 2018.
