The Swedish government has granted Skangass permission to build and operate a new LNG terminal within the harbour in Gävle, Sweden.
Skangass aims to commence construction work during 2015. The permission covers an LNG storage capacity of 30 000 m3 and a handling capacity of up to 500,000 tpa of LNG.
The planned LNG terminal is an important part of the expansion of LNG infrastructure in Sweden and the Baltic Sea.
The investment decision will probably be made during spring 2015. The terminal will be developed in cooperation with Gävle Hamn, which invests in the building of infrastructure in the harbour area.
