FIRST LNG RELOAD FOR KLAIPEDA LNG

January 04, 2017

December, 2016 Skangas signed an agreement with Statoil, the Norwegian oil and gas company, for a small-scale LNG reload to take place at the Klaipeda LNG Terminal in Lithuania. The reload will take place early January 2017. This will be the first reload conducted at the terminal and it is the first time Skangas source LNG from Statoil. Skangas eyes this a natural next step to further increase the support for the development of the small-scale market in Northern Europe. Adding this Terminal increases possibilities and competition, which also gives security of supply and all parties’ better opportunities.
