Kriogaz starts supplying LNG to Europe's bunker market

Estonia's Eesti Gaas is sourcing product for the supply of LNG to Tallink.





Updated on 31 Jan 2017 11:35 GMT

Gazprombank-owned Kriogaz has started supplying liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Europe's marine fuel market.

Estonian gas supplier Eesti Gaas is sourcing product from Kriogaz for the delivery of LNG fuel to Tallink's new ro-pax ferry, the M/V Megastar, at the port of Tallinn.

The LNG-powered Megastar embarked on its maiden voyage on 29th January, transporting around 2,800 passengers from Tallinn to Helsinki.

Powered by Wartsila dual-fuel engines, the ship is able to run on marine distillate fuel, but its main fuel is intended to be LNG.

Kriogaz purchases natural gas from Gazprom (which has a 35.5414 percent stake in Gazprombank) and sells it to Estonia via its LNG production facility in Russia's Pskov region, which produces more than 20,000 tonnes of LNG per year.

Eesti Gaas said last week that it had ordered eight modern trucks - each equipped with powerful cryogenic pumps - to transport LNG from Pskov to Estonia.

Richard Rudnitsky, CEO of Kriogaz, informed Estonia's media that the company also intends to begin selling LNG to the Czech Republic, Germany, Latvia, Lithiania and Poland.

In December, Bunker Index reported that bunker supplier Neste and Tallink Grupp had agreed to continue their cooperation in 2017, which will see Neste supply low-sulphur marine fuel to Tallink's vessels calling at Finnish ports during the course of this year
