Skangas – a subsidiary of Gasum – has successfully executed its first LNG bunkering operation at the Pori terminal in Finland.
The vessel involved in the operation was Terntank’s product tanker, Ternsund, which is operated by North European Oil Trade (NEOT).
Tor Morten Osmundsen, the CEO of Skangas, said: “The Skangas terminal in Pori was officially opened three weeks ago. This marks a milestone in our development of the Finnish market. Now we do yet another first when making the first bunkering directly from the terminal.
“I’m very proud to be able to offer customers like NEOT a bunkering service directly at the terminal.”
Satu Mattila, the Chartering Manager at NEOT, added: “We’re very satisfied that we now have the opportunity to bunker LNG in Finland right beside one of our terminals.
“We will run Ternsund both along the Finnish and the Norwegian coast as well as in the Gothenburg area. It’s advantageous for us that our LNG supplier can offer bunkering at several locations where we trade. This fits well with our trading pattern for the vessels Ternsund and Tern Sea.”
