Greenpeace protest at Gasum's Nynäshamn terminal

Earlier today Greenpeace activists climbed up to the loading arms of Gasum’s Nynäshamn LNG terminal and used kayaks and a sailing boat to block the entry of Coral Energy LNG carrier. Greenpeace stated that they are protesting the import of Russian LNG to Sweden. We informed the Swedish authorities of the situation and local police are present at the terminal. We had been preparing for this type of activism in Nynäshamn terminal together with local authorities and other stakeholders.

In August, Greenpeace Norden sent Gasum a letter regarding the sourcing of Russian LNG. In our reply to that letter, we stated that Gasum has a long-term take-or-pay LNG supply contract with Gazprom Export and currently Gasum has no legal basis to end the contract or take it to arbitration.

Gasum has a full-scale LNG value chain which allows the company to serve the Nordic markets. We procure part of our LNG from Russia, but they majority of the LNG comes from Norway and globally through terminals in Central Europe.

LNG deliveries from Russia are currently not sanctioned by the EU or any country Gasum operates in. Gasum always complies with applicable sanctions and restrictions. However, we must also take into account especially our industrial and CHP customers' situation, their security of supply and our obligation to supply them with gas. Even in crisis situation, we have an obligation to secure the supply of energy.

Coral Energy is currently waiting outside Nynäshamn until it is safe again to operate in the harbor.
