LNG - Natural gas terminals

In cooperation with CRYO we are expanding Sweden’s ability to receive natural gas.

LNG stands for "Liquefied Natural Gas". Transportation and storage of gas in liquefied form means that significantly larger volumes of energy can be managed within the same transport- and storage volumes, as for gas in gaseous form (volume ratio 1/600).

This in itself presents a major environmental benefit, but other major advantages can also be realised through use of natural gas, which can replace coal and oil in a great number of contexts. To convert natural gas into liquid form, it needs to be cooled to -162°C. This presents major demands on the design of storage and terminals where the gas liquid is handled.

Because of its high energy content and low carbon content, natural gas can help reduce global carbon dioxide emissions. The more oil and coal we replace with natural gas, the lower the carbon dioxide emissions. This will also help reduce the emissions of other harmful materials. In the long term, use of natural gas also prepares our energy resource management for renewable biogas, in that infrastructure for natural gas can also be used for biogas.

Natural gas and bio fuel constitute some of the most important components for the major changeover to renewable energy in the transport sector that we are now facing.

We can offer a complete delivery in which we also carry out related harbour- and ground work. Our cooperative format Partnering has been used with great success for the LNG terminal in Nynäshamn, a cooperative approach that is particularly suitable for this type of project, where high complexity and stringent timelines prevail.
