BC, Vilnius, 01.08.2017.Print version
Shell, a Dutch company that is one of the biggest gas trade companies worldwide, will for the first time deliver a small-sized shipment of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the Lithuanian port city of Klaipeda that will be used for tests of the gas distribution station of Klaipedos Nafta (Klaipeda Oil), informs LETA/BNS.

Klaipedos Nafta said it had signed a contract with Shell Western LNG on purchase of 1,000 cubic meters of LNG, with the gas to be delivered in the second half of August or in September. Signed on July 10, the contract is estimated at 400,000 euros.

This will be the first time LNG is delivered to Klaipeda on a small LNG vessel instead of the big gas carriers with capacity of 140,000 cubic meters. According to Klaipedos Nafta, after the LNG is loaded into the reservoirs of the distribution station, launch and adjustment tasks will be started and last until January of 2018.


In the competition announced by Klaipedos Nafta, Shell offered 23.16 euros per megawatt-hour, while Lithuania's Litgas offered 28 euros and Scandinavia's Skangas offered 35 euros.


The LNG distribution station project is estimated at 27.7 m illion euros, involving construction of 5 stations of 1,000 cubic meters each for reloading LNG onto tank trucks.
