Skangass Strikes LNG Supply Deal with Eni
- Business & Finance
Skangass has signed a two year agreement with Eni for supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG). The LNG will be delivered from the Fluxys LNG terminal in Zeebrugge and transported by Coral Energy to Skangass’ newly opened receiving terminal in Lysekil, Sweden.
The agreement for 4.6 TWh falls into one of the largest small scale agreements for LNG.
“This agreement is a natural extension to our current LNG supplies from Risavika,” said Tor Morten Osmundsen, CEO of Skangass. “By this agreement we will be able to support current and new customers with even a more secure and flexible supply. An increasing number of energy intensive industries and shipping are converting to natural gas.”
This agreement supports EU programs for clean industry and transportation sector. Users of LNG and natural gas are achieving significant reduction of CO2 emissions as well as sulphur, NOx and particles reductions.
Skangass opened the new LNG receiving terminal in Lysekil last month, and another receiving terminal is under construction in Pori, Finland. The company is also participating in plans for an LNG terminal in Tornio, Finland.
