Skangas completes small-scale LNG loading at Melkøya

LNG supplier and terminal operator, Skangas, a Gasum company, completed the first small-scale liquefied natural gas loading at the Statoil-operated LNG plant at Melkøya island outside Hammerfest in Norway.

Statoil delivered the cargo of 100 GWh to Skangas’ vessel Coral Energy, the company said in a statement.

This terminal is an addition to Skangas’ existing LNG sources, providing additional security of supply, according to Kimmo Rahkamo, CEO of Skangas.

“In addition, a future possible supply alternative from the northern part of Norway could make it easier to open up for new deliveries along the entire coast of Norway,” he said.

The operation was conducted on the large-scale jetty at Melkøya LNG plant. The jetty is constructed for conventional sized LNG vessels.

For comparison, Skangas’ vessel Coral Energy is a small to medium scale LNG carrier with a capacity of 15 600 cubic meters.

The LNG from Melkøya was delivered to Skangas’ terminal in Lysekil, Sweden where Skangas has an LNG terminal serving one of their major customers.
