Gasnor and Wintershall Dea sign LNG bunker supply deal
Norwegian natural gas supplier Gasnor has signed an LNG supply deal with German oil and gas company Wintershall Dea.
Gasnor will supply LNG to the offshore supply ship Viking Princess that serves on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The vessel is owned by Eidesvik Offshore, and is contracted to serve to Wintershall Dea as of September 2020.
The LNG will come from the bunkering terminal at Mongstad Base, Norway.
The 90 meters long and 21 metres wide vessel is equipped with technology that makes it possible to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 2400 tonnes per year, corresponding to emissions from approximately 1200 cars.
Viking Princess is equipped with dual-fuel engines that can run on both marine gasoil and LNG as fuel, with a battery pack for efficient energy management.
Gasnor estimates that the vessel would emit 30 per cent less CO2 annually.
