Klaipedos Nafta starts up LNG reloading station

Klaipedos Nafta last week officially started up operations at its small-scale LNG reloading facility in the port of Klaipeda. 

The company noted that trial operations and commissioning works will continue at the facility that has a 5,000 cubic meter capacity until the end of the year.

The LNG reloading station is intended to supply LNG for customers in the Baltic Sea region as well as promote the use of clean fuel for maritime operations and heavy vehicles, ensuring access to LNG for remote consumers.

The construction of the LNG reloading station commenced in February 2016, upon the signature of the contract with the consortium comprising German-Lithuanian PPS Pipeline Systems and Czech Chart Ferox.

Speaking of the LNG reloading station, Klaipedos Nafta’s CEO Mindaugas Jusius, said, “the first commissioning cargo has been delivered by the global oil and gas giant Shell, and the first LNG trucks already shipped to Poland.”

He added that the company believes that Lithuania will eventually develop the network of LNG regasification stations.
