Sweden to get second LNG terminal

Skangass AS, Stavanger, has awarded a $57 million engineering, procurement, construction, and installation contract to Linde Group, Munich, to build an LNG import terminal at Lysekil on the west coast of Sweden about 62 miles north of Gothenburg.

Start-up will be in spring 2014.

It will supply natural gas to the refinery at Preem as well as to industrial and transportation applications, Linde reported. The contract award includes integration of cryogenic tanks to be erected by an unnamed third party.

Linde also built Sweden’s first LNG terminal in Nynashamn last year. The terminal will have storage capacity of 30,000 cu m of LNG, compared with 20,000 cu m at Nynashamn, and will include a truck filling station.

Linde Engineering has performed the basic engineering and will support with procurement of rotating equipment, commissioning, and start-up.

LNG for both terminals comes from the midscale LNG plant at Risavika, near Stavanger. Also owned by Skangass, this plant started operations in 2010 (OGJ Online, July 7, 2007).

Gothenburg is one of northern Europe’s largest ports of export, the company said. It is in an “emission control area,” where stricter sulfur emission limits will apply in January 2015.
