LNG reloading station contract awarded

Klaipeda facility to include jetty modules for ship bunkering.





Updated on 29 Feb 2016 09:05 GMT

Chart Industries, Inc. has announced that its wholly owned Czech subsidiary Chart Ferox, along with EPC consortium partner PPS Pipeline Systems Germany, has acquired a contract for an LNG reloading station in Lithuania, for AB Klaipedos Nafta at the Port of Klaipeda.

The contract between AB Klaipedos Nafta and the consortium, worth EUR 27.7 million, is due to fully come into effect once a general meeting by AB Klaipedos Nafta's shareholders approves the conclusion of the EPC contract. Equipment engineering, production, installation, commissioning, and construction of the associated infrastructure are part of the project scope. Almost half of the project's value is attributed to Chart's scope of supply.

Chart Ferox has agreed to provide 5,000 cubic meters of LNG storage to the Lithuanian station. To do this, Chart is to utilize five cryogenic storage tanks, each with an external diameter of approximately 6 metres, and a length of over 50 metres. The station is to be built to include two loading areas for LNG trucks as well as jetty modules for ship bunkering.

The LNG regasification facility will have the capacity to supply natural gas at a rate of 6000 normal metres cubed (Nm3) per hour, Chart says. Complete scope delivery is expected in the third or fourth quarter of 2017 since the LNG reloading station is scheduled take almost 15 months to become operational. The current plant design has a provision for future expansion as well, which could double the station's storage capacity.

Chart Ferox's Business Director, Miroslav Cerny has expressed his confidence in his company's and new partner PPS Pipeline Systems' ability to deliver the project within what he called "an extremely aggressive timescale".

"The project is part of a bigger picture that is about helping Klaipeda become a Baltic hub, enabling it to play the role of an essential pipeline for fueling ships as well as delivering LNG via trucks. The idea is that this development will make it possible for Klaipeda to rely less on imported pipeline gas," Chart Forex said.
