26th November 2012

Industrial gas and engineering company Linde secures USD 57m contract from LNG distributor Skangass AS to build LNG terminal in Sweden’s west coast

The terminal will have a storage capacity of 30,000 cubic metres of LNG

International industrial gases and engineering company Linde on Friday announced it will build a new mid-scale liquified natural gas (LNG) import terminal in Sweden, as part of a USD 57m contract from Norwegian-based LNG distributor Skangass AS.

The terminal will have a storage capacity of 30,000 cubic metres of LNG and will include a truck filling station, German-based Linde said. The company has performed the basic engineering and will support with the procurement of rotating equipment, commissioning and start-up. LNG for the  terminal will come from the mid-scale LNG plant at Risavika near Stavanger, Norway.

The new terminal will be located in Lyesekil, west coast of Sweden, near Gottenburg, one the country’s key industrial areas. As new sulphur emission limits will become applicable in January 2015, Linde claims the new

LNG terminal will help the country comply with the upcoming regulations.
Linde’s declared strategy is to cover the entire LNG value chain from from purchasing and transport through storage to distribution and refuelling of ships at strategically important ports.
