The first LNG delivery to Sweden
Coral Methane arrived at the terminal in Nynäshamn.
The first delivery of liquefied natural gas, LNG, has arrived at AGA’s new terminal outside Nynashamn. The delivery comes from Norway with a purpose-built vessel. Never before has natural gas been delivered to Sweden in this way.
On the west coast the natural gas is supplied from pipelines, but the gas to the terminal outside Nynäshamn is delivered by ship from Norway. The gas is then condensed to liquid form and is kept refrigerated to minus 162 degrees. This reduce the volume 600 times.
The 35-meter-high tank of Brunnsviksholme holds a total of 20 000 m3 or 9000 tons of natural gas in liquid form and will provide both industries such as processing, metallurg, pulp and transport on land and at sea with fuel.
- Already, Stockholm Gas replaced its old oil-based towngas to LNG mixed with air. The change in the current situation means a reduction in carbon emissions by 50 000 tonnes per year, said Peter Smith, Sales Manager at AGA.
Now it was the premier of the purpose-built mother ship Coral Methane to sail into the Baltic. Never before has LNG been transported here in this way. The ship is 7400 cubic meters and is also being driven by LNG.
