An LNG cargo, approximately 3000 m3, has arrived at the Klaipedos Nafta reloading station for the Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG). Since April 2020 PGNiG has been the sole user of the facility.
“Our activities in Lithuania in the use of the local LNG reloading station are gaining momentum, and the cooperation with Klaipedos Nafta is excellent. In less than five months, we received two LNG loads, and over 100 tank trucks loaded with [LNG] have already left the station, which is over 2000 t of LNG,” said Jerzy Kwiecinski, President of the PGNiG Management Board.
Gasum's Coralius bunkering tanker delivered LNG from Norway. It was the first time that the vessel arrived at the LNG reloading station in Klaipeda.
“Our strategic decision to establish cooperation with PGNiG brings tangible results to the development of the activities at the LNG reloading station. The Polish LNG consumption market is already sufficiently broad and involves the use of LNG in the transport sector as well as the supply of LNG to customers who are further away from the natural gas network. On the other hand, as owners of an infrastructure in the port of Klaipeda, we receive enquiries from various companies in the marine sector regarding the possibility of bunkering LNG-powered vessels or replenishing the capacity of LNG-powered trucks,” said Darius Šilenskis, General Manager of Klaipedos Nafta.
