Skangas Conducts Small-Scale LNG Loading at Statoil Terminal

Scandinavian liquefied natural gas (LNG) provider Skangas has completed its first small scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) loading at the Statoil operated LNG plant at Melkøya island in Norway.

The cargo of 100 GWh was delivered to Skangas’ vessel Coral Energy on October 17 on the large-scale jetty at Melkøya LNG plant. The cargo was delivered to Skangas’ terminal in Lysekil, Sweden.

“This terminal is an addition to our existing LNG sources. Having several LNG sources supports our customers and us with additional security of supply and it increases our opportunities,” Kimmo Rahkamo, CEO of Skangas, said.

“In addition, a future possible supply alternative from the northern part of Norway could make it easier to open up for new deliveries along the entire coast of Norway,” Rahkamo added.

Melkøya LNG plant’s large-scale jetty is constructed for conventional sized LNG vessels. As a comparison, Skangas’ vessel Coral Energy is a small to medium scale LNG carrier with a capacity of 15,600 m3.

Earlier this year Statoil and Skangas also conducted the first small scale LNG loading at the Klaipeda Terminal in Lithuania.

The company delivers LNG to Statoil’s supply vessels from several bases in Norway. In Northern Europe, Skangas’ new LNG bunker vessel Coralius makes LNG available for the marine market.
