Skangas bunkered liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the tanker vessel Ternsund in the Port of Gothenburg, the first time Coralius operated in this port.

Commenting on the operation Skangas noted that the increased number of LNG fueled vessels drive bunker demand.

Gunnar Helmen, sales manager marine in Skangas, said the Swedish authorities “Transportstyrelsen” overlooked the operation as they are currently developing LNG guidelines for Swedish ports.

“Soon, the fleet of LNG driven vessels only with Swedish shipowners will double. Up to now, we have bunkered LNG by trucks in the Port of Gothenburg. Our bunkering vessel is yet another manner to meet the demand,” he said

A ship-to-ship bunkering is often the preferred solution for transferring fuel, Skangas said, adding it offers a flexibility in transfer location and a swift operation.

The receiving vessel, Ternsund, is an oil and chemical tanker build in 2016 for the shipping company Terntank. She has a LNG dual-fuel engine from Wärtsila. Currently she serves under time charter deal with Finnish North European Oil Trade (NEOT) distributing products from the Gothenburg area.

Skangas expects the LNG demand for ships to increase significantly in next few years as responsible shipping companies are seeking cleaner fuel alternatives.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
