Risavika LNG production plant under Skangas ownership

Jaa:

The acquisition of the Risavika LNG production plant has been approved by the competition authorities of Sweden and Norway. The acquisition of the Risavika production plant will strengthen Skangas’s presence in the downstream of the LNG value chain and secure Skangas’s commercial position in the Norwegian market and North Sea.

Gasum acquired the majority of the Norwegian Skangas’s distribution operations from the Lyse Group in 2014, with the transaction including a purchase option of the Risavika LNG production plant. The acquisition was part of Gasum’s strategy to improve the availability of competitive LNG in the Nordic countries.

 “Under the tolling agreement signed in 2014, we have bought the full annual capacity of the Risavika LNG plant. The acquisition of the plant puts the final pieces in place in the overall acquisition of Skangas. This acquisition is part of our LNG business development and further strengthens our position as the leading LNG player in the Nordic market,” says Gasum CEO Johanna Lamminen.

The Risavika production plant has an annual production capacity of 300,000 tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG), and the volume of its tank is 30,000 cbm. The acquisition also includes the LNG marine bunkering facility.
