Swedgas and Barents NaturGass has entered a contract of deliveries to a new bunkering facility in the port of Gothenburg
Nordic gas companies, Swedegas and Barents NaturGass, have signed an agreement to deliver liquefied natural gas (LNG) to a bunkering facility in the Port of Gothenburg.
The infrastructure company Swedegas, which will own and operate the facility, and the Norwegian company Barents NaturGass, will supply the LNG with ISO-containers from main European terminals, Swedegas said in a statement.
Construction of the Gothenburg’s first LNG bunkering facility at the Energy Port has been in progress since the winter and the facility is expected to become operational in August this year.
Swedegas added the facility could be expanded over time in line with the market growth and is also ready for the supply of biogas.
Speaking of the agreement, Gudrun Rollefsen, CEO of Barents NaturGass, said, “Gothenburg-based shipping companies have been amongst the first to adopt LNG in Sweden. Several vessels have already been built and launched which are ready to run on LNG. We are keen to start our LNG supply services and meet the customer’s needs.”
