Barents NaturGass said its LNG bunkering facility located at Polarbase, the supply base for the Barents Sea, in Hammerfest in northern Noway has started operations.

The facility has an LNG storage capacity of 1250 cubic meters and a pump capacity of 90 tons per hour and is equipped to handle vessels longer than 250 meters with a 13-meter draft, the company said in its statement.
