Skangass Builds LNG Terminal in Pori, Finland
With investment support from the Finnish Government of 185 million NOK Skangass has decided to build a new import terminal for LNG. The terminal will be completed in 2016. Skangass plans to create an efficient LNG logistics chain in the Pori area.
When the terminal is ready in Autumn 2016 it will have a capacity of 30,000 cubic meters. Skangass has already selected the main contractor and suppliers for the project.
”The investment decision will result in speedy progress in the construction project. It is highly important that the Pori terminal is completed on schedule and that we can launch deliveries to our existing and new customers. Interest in LNG is found among industrial, shipping as well as heavy-duty land transport customers,” says Sales and Marketing Director Tommy Mattila from Skangass.
The Pori LNG terminal will be the third Skangass terminal in the Nordic countries. A terminal of the same capacity was opened by the company in Lysekil, Sweden, Summer 2014. The Øra terminal in Norway is smaller in terms of its storage capacity.
Skangass also has a long-term LNG supply contract with the company Risavika LNG Production. Skangass has charterparties for two LNG tankers and operates a fleet of 20 LNG road trucks.
