Skangass has opened a new LNG receiving terminal in Lysekil, Sweden.
The LNG terminal is a joint project between Skangass and its customer Preem.
LNG will be delivered from the terminal to marine clients, as well as other land based industries by truck.
Petter Holland, CEO of Preem, said: “Preem’s refinery in Lysekil is among the most modern, environmentally-friendly in Europe and the world. Using natural gas in the processes will lead to a reduction of the annual emission of carbon dioxide by approximately 130 000 t. The natural gas will replace naphtha and butane as raw material in the hydrogen production. A large amount of hydrogen is used in the processes among others for removal of [sulfur] and cracking in the diesel production.”
Skangass CEO, Tor Morten Osmundse, added: “Our customer Preem and the LNG terminal in Lysekil is just another good example of what Skangass is aiming at: helping our customers meeting their goals for becoming more energy efficient and environmentally friendly in their daily operations”.
The opening of the LNG terminal is an important step in making natural gas available for the land based industry and the marine market in the area.
