PGNiG receives second LNG load in Lithuania

The second load of approximately 3,000 cubic metres of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) has arrived at the Klaipėdos Nafta reloading station after Poland’s oil and gas company PGNiG became the sole user of the facility earlier in April

“Our activities in Lithuania in the use of the local LNG reloading station are gaining momentum and the cooperation with Klaipėdos Nafta is excellent,” said Jerzy Kwieciński, President of the PGNiG Management Board. “In less than five months, we received two LNG loads and over 100 tank trucks loaded with liquefied natural gas have already left the station, which is over 2,000 tons of LNG.”

The Coralius bunkering tanker delivered LNG from Norway. It was the first time that the vessel arrived at the LNG reloading station in Klaipėda.

“Our strategic decision to establish cooperation with PGNiG brings tangible results to the development of the activities at the LNG reloading station,” added Darius Šilenskis, General Manager of Klaipėdos Nafta. “The Polish LNG consumption market is already sufficiently broad and involves the use of LNG in the transport sector as well as the supply of LNG to customers who are further away from the natural gas network. On the other hand, as owners of the infrastructure in the port of Klaipėda, we receive enquiries from various companies in the marine sector regarding the possibility of bunkering LNG-powered vessels or replenishing the capacity of LNG-powered trucks.”

PGNiG has been the user of the Klaipėda station since the beginning of April 2020. The facility belongs to Klaipėdos Nafta and in November 2019 the Polish company won the tender for five-year use of 100 per cent of its technical capabilities.
