Leading Nordic supplier of small scale liquefied natural gas Gasum announced that they have agreed with Swedegas to use Swedegas facility for liquefied gas for bunkering of LNG fueled vessels. Swedegas’ gas infrastructure at the jetty of the Energy Port in Gothenburg enables Gasum to broaden their services to meet the increasing LNG demand in the maritime sector. This demand comes from stricter climate and environmental goals in the maritime sector.

On 24 October the first bunkering took place of the oil and chemical tanker Tern Ocean. Tern Ocean is chartered by Preem and she loaded her cargo simultaneously from Preem’s refinery in Gothenburg.

The agreement with Swedegas falls into the company’s plans to expand its maritime LNG services. From the jetties 519 and 521 in the Gothenburg harbor Swedegas offers their customers the opportunity to bunker LNG and liquefied biogas at the same time as the vessels load and discharge their cargo.

The LNG facility allows to be used for the storage and transport of biogas. This means that vessels can bunker not only LNG but also LBG. LBG is renewable and can as well be used as vessel fuel.
