Scandinavian liquefied natural gas (LNG) provider Skangas has signed an agreement with Norwegian oil and gas major Statoil for a small-scale LNG reload at the Klaipeda LNG Terminal in Lithuania.

The company said that the reload will be undertaken in early January 2017 and will be “the first reload conducted at the terminal.”

Skangas said that this could be a natural next step to further increase the support for the development of the small-scale market in Northern Europe.

Statoil and Skangas have already concluded other agreements as part of their business relationship including a bunker supply agreement to the platform supply vessels delivered from several bases in Norway including possible ship-to-ship transfer.

“We see this latest agreement as a confirmation of the two companies’ common interest to promote LNG in order to continuously develop the small-scale LNG market,” Tor Morten Osmundsen, CEO of Skangas, said.

During the last years, Skangas has invested heavily in terminal infrastructure such as in Pori, Finland and in Lysekil, Sweden. During mid 2017, the company’s new LNG feeder and bunker ship Coralius will be ready to start providing ship-to-ship bunkering and freighter services in the area of Skagerrak, Kattegat and the Baltic Sea.
