Finland Opens Largest Nordic LNG Terminal After Delay
(Reuters) – Finland’s 110 million-euro ($124.5 million) Manga liquefied natural gas import terminal has fully opened after a year-long delay to the project, engineering firm Wartsila and part-owner Gasum said on Tuesday. Manga, the largest LNG terminal in the Nordic region with storage capacity of 50,000 cubic metres, began receiving some shipments in November 2017, but is only now ready for full commercial operations after an additional year of tests. A Wartsila executive told Reuters the testing period had been prolonged due to some adjustments that the facility needed, but declined to specify the nature of the extra works. The terminal includes facilities for LNG unloading, storage, pipeline distribution, regasification, truck loading, and ship bunkering, said Wartsila, which will also maintain the facility for 10 years.
