Skangass Cleared for New LNG Terminal

Skangass Cleared for New LNG Terminal
Gävle Harbour

The Swedish Government has granted Skangass permission to build and operate a new Terminal for LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) within the harbour in Gävle, Sweden, the company said. Skangass aims at starting the construction work during 2015.


The permission is given for a storing capacity of 30 000 m3 LNG and a handling of up to 500 000 tonnes of LNG each year.

The planned LNG terminal is an important part of the expansion of LNG infrastructure in Sweden and the Baltic Sea. The environmental advantages of using LNG instead of oil based fuel within shipping, industry and heavy transportation are substantial.

Sulphur and particle emissions are reduced to almost zero, nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission is reduced by 85-90 per cent and the carbon dioxide (CO2) is reduced by 25 per cent.

The investment decision will probably be taken during spring 2015. The terminal will be developed in cooperation with Gävle Hamn that invests in building the infrastructure in the harbour area.
