Skangass invests in Pori LNG terminal – LNG to be supplied to customers from the terminal in 2016
Skangass has made an investment decision and will construct a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal as well as an efficient LNG logistics chain in Tahkoluoto, Pori, Finland.

Skangass, a subsidiary of the natural energy gas company Gasum, has made an investment decision concerning the Pori LNG terminal. The terminal will have a capacity of 30,000 cubic meters and the expected completion for the project is autumn 2016.

Skangass has selected the main contractor and suppliers for the project. The key project partners are Neste Jacobs (ECPM contract), KVL-Tekniikka Oy (site construction and piling work) and FCC Industrial (EPC storage tank).
Subcontractors for FCC Industrial in the project will include Destia Ltd and Rudus Oy. The employment effect of the construction project is estimated to be the equivalent of 250 full-time employees. Once operational, the terminal will employ around 10 people directly and around 50 people indirectly.

”The investment decision will speed up the progress of the construction project. It is highly important that the Pori terminal is completed on schedule and that we can launch deliveries to our existing and new customers. Interest in LNG exists among industrial, shipping as well as heavy-duty land transport customers,” says Director Tommy Mattila from Skangass.

The LNG terminal in Tahkoluoto, Pori will be the Skangass’ third terminal in the Nordic countries. A terminal of the same capacity was opened by the company in Lysekil, Sweden, in the summer. The Øra terminal in Norway is smaller in terms of its storage capacity. Skangass also has a long-term supply contract with the Norwegian Lyse Group concerning the use of the LNG production facility located in Risavika, Norway. The facility supplies LNG to industrial, shipping and heavy-duty land transport customers by road and sea. Skangass has charter parties for two LNG tankers and it operates a fleet of 20 LNG road tankers.

LNG is an environmentally friendly fuel that can be used to replace oil-based fuels in industry, energy production and maritime transport and, consequently, achieve major reductions in particulate as well as sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide emissions from these activities.
