Skangass loads first LNG at Zeebrugge
Skangass said that LNG was loaded aboard Coral Energy, the Skangass time-chartered ship, at the Fluxys’ LNG terminal in Zeebrugge.
This was the first Skangass loading at Zeebrugge under the recently concluded agreement between Skangass and the oil and gas giant Eni.
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“.
Coral Energy is carrying the LNG to Skangass’ receiving terminal in Lysekil, Sweden. The LNG is further distributed to clients in Sweden by pipeline or trucks.
Skangass has a new receiving terminal under construction in Pori, Finland that will be completed in 2016. The company has decided to invest in an LNG terminal in the port of Röyttä in Tornio, Finland. Construction will be completed in 2018.
