Oil and LNG terminals operator Klaipėdos Nafta (KN) has started commissioning works at its LNG reloading station after the bunker vessel Cardissa delivered a commissioning cargo.

The ship, owned by Shell Western LNG, arrived to Klaipėda Seaport on September 17 carrying the required LNG cargo from the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) Independence in Lithuania.

Under a contract between Klaipėdos nafta and Shell, 1,000 cubic meters of LNG were reloaded to the bunker vessel, which was used to fill two of the five storage tanks of the LNG reloading station.

“The commissioning works enable us to test the entire infrastructure for the LNG logistics in the Klaipėda Seaport. First, the reloading of LNG from the large terminal to a small-scale LNG carrier, then from the carrier to the LNG reloading station, and finally to LNG tank trucks,” Mindaugas Jusius, KN‘s Managing Director, said.

Requisite testing of individual components and equipment of the distribution station was completed prior to starting the transfer of LNG from the bunker vessel to the storage tanks. It is estimated that all phases of the LNG reloading station’s commissioning works will be completed by the end of the autumn, and commercial operations will be launched in the first half-year of 2018 upon approval of the construction completion certificate.
