Symbolic milestones reached in Klaipeda LNG reloading station in Lithuania

After the completion of the Klaipėda LNG FSRU, Lithuania became the 5th country in the world to use FSRU technology for LNG

 Symbolic milestones reached in Klaipeda LNG reloading station in Lithuania

Vilnius, March 10 - Neftegaz.RU.Klaipeda LNG reloading station operated by Klaipėdos Nafta has reached double achievement: the 1000th LNG truck loading operation (counting since the start of operations of this facility), as well as the 300th LNG truck loading for Polish PGNiG, the sole user of the station.

LNG is transported by LNG trucks to the Baltic States, most of them (from the beginning of operations) were supplied to:
  • Poland (about 76%)
  • about 16% is supplied in Lithuania by delivering to LNG regasification stations in Druskininkai and Viečiūnai
  • the rest is exported to Latvia and Estonia
In the largest Polish market, LNG is used to supply natural gas to off-grid locations, as well as network of LNG refuelling points that is being developed for heavy duty road transport.

Mindaugas Navikas, KN’s Chief Sales Officer said:
  • The operation of the LNG reloading station was definitely the right step to supplement services of the Klaipėda LNG terminal
  • Both natural gas and LNG will maintain a high demand in the global market for the next 2-3 decades
  • In the context of decarbonisation, gas is a crucial resource that enables the use of renewable resources and the transition to even more sustainable technologies
  • Balancing renewable energy, cleaner marine and heavy-duty road transport fuels, blue hydrogen production are the potential directions for the future of natural gas
In total, the Klaipėda LNG reloading station services has already been used by 16 different companies.

Paweł Majewski, President of PGNiG , noted:
  • As we are getting closer to our 1st full year of use of the LNG realoading station in Klaipeda, we have reached a milestone of total of 300 LNG trucks expedited by PGNiG from the facility
  • Operations from the Klaipeda station have allowed us not only to expand our small-scale LNG offer into Baltic States markets, but also provided us with an opportunity to serve our customers in north-eastern Poland, where most of LNG loads from Klaipeda are heading to – it is delivered not only to business customers, but also ends up being used in LNG regasification stations in areas without pipelines distributing natural gas
Klaipėda LNG reloading station started operating at the end of 2017.
The LNG reloading station also provides LNG loading to ships, LNG bunkering, LNG loading to ISO containers services.
