Klaipedos Nafta’s liquefied natural gas reloading station performed the first LNG truck loading operation as the commissioning works at the facility in the port of Klaipėda.
The facility performed the operation on Tuesday, October 17, when the first LNG truck from the Polish company Duon arrived at the facility.
Klaipedos Nafta carried out a small-scale technical feasibility and risk study in relation to loading LNG trucks, which defines the conditions of accepting and loading LNG trucks at LNG reloading station.
Speaking of the event, Klaipedos Nafta’s CEO Mindaugas Jusius said, “the LNG reloading station will guarantee the logistic chain for the Baltic Sea Region countries and market participants while supplying gas to consumers who are not connected to the main gas pipelines.”
In October and November, Litgas, Lithuanian natural gas trading company, part of Lietuvos Energia, will supply several hundred cubic meters of LNG to Duon, which means that LNG trucks will begin to constantly arrive at the LNG reloading station owned by Klaipedos Nafta.
