Gasum, Equinor extend long-term LNG bunkering deal

Nordic energy major Gasum will continue to supply LNG to Equinor’s dual-fuel chartered fleet of vessels under a new deal revealed on Tuesday.

Gasum said in a statement this new agreement builds on the success of the previous contract the firm had signed with Equinor.

It did not reveal the duration of the deal or additional details of the contract.

However, the firm said that its bunker vessels Coralius, Kairos and Coral Energy, will be used for the bunkering operations.

The agreement also includes additional support services such as cooling down and gassing up, which has also been a part of Gasum’s previous collaboration with Equinor.

Gasum has organized three separate LNG cool down operations for Equinor in Skagen so far this year.

Both Gasum and Equinor have committed to sustainability goals to enable a cleaner energy future.

Gasum’s strategic goal is to bring yearly 7 TWh of renewable gas to market by 2027.

Achieving this goal would mean combined carbon dioxide reduction of 1.8 million tons per year for Gasum’s customers.
