PGNiG sells first LNG Cargo from Klaipėda

Polish oil and gas company Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo (PGNiG) has sold the first two LNG cargoes from the Klaipėda reloading station.

Norwegian bunker fuel supplier for LNG-fueled ships CRYO Shipping bought both cargoes, which were loaded onto a pair of LNG trucks on 7 April. The company provides bunkering services in Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Lithuania.

The cargoes were provided to a JT Cement AS-owned cement carrier, the Greenland, which was moored at the wharf of the Klaipėda port, where the reloading station is located.

PGNiG took over as sole user of the station on 1 April 2020. President of the PGNiG Management Board Jerzy Kwieciński noted that the sale came despite challenging conditions related to the coronavirus outbreak. “On the one hand this attests to our capabilities in small-scale LNG, while also confirming that the LNG markets in Lithuania and the other Baltic countries have considerable potential.”
