The Linde Group has been commissioned by Norwegian-based Skangass AS to build a mid-scale LNG import terminal at the west coast of Sweden, in Lysekil, 100 km north of Gothenburg. The project is worth around € 44 million. The works include the integration of the cryogenic tank structures to be erected by a third party.
The new LNG terminal is planned to start operations in spring 2014 and will supply natural gas to the nearby Preem refinery as well as LNG for industrial and transportation applications.
The new terminal will have a storage capacity of 30,000 m³ of LNG, compared to 20,000 m³ at Nynäshamn, and will include a truck filling station.
Nearby Gothenburg is one of Sweden’s key industrial areas and northern Europe’s largest port of export. It is located in an Emission Control Area (ECA), where stricter sulfur emission limits will become applicable in January 2015.
