Skangas has signed an agreement with Statoil for delivery of LNG fuel for its platform supply vessels (PSV).

The fuel will be delivered to several bases along the Norwegian west coast by ship.

“We see this agreement as a recognition of our daily work and a confirmation of a good relationship with Statoil”, said Tor Morten Osmundsen, CEO of Skangas. 

He added: “It is important to have customers that emphasize the necessity of more sustainable operations enabling the use of a more environmentally friendly energy. We are depending on front runners to develop the market for LNG and further for liquefied biogas (LBG)”.

The LNG will be delivered from the LNG plant in Risavika to the supply bases along the Norwegian coast by Skangas’ new LNG feeder and bunker ship Coralius. 

Coralius’ design has been optimised for safe and reliable bunkering operations and is expected to be available Spring 2017. 

In addition to this, Skangas will deliver LNG to Statoil’s tugs at Kårstø. The agreement is valid from 1 April 2017 until the end of 2020 with an option for two plus two years and the supply bases are located at Mongstad, Florø (Saga Fjordbase) and Kristiansund (Vestbase).
