Eesti Gaas launches first LNG station in Latvia

Infortar’s Eesti Gaas said it has completed its first LNG station in Latvia powering a fish canery owned by food producer Unda.

Unda teamed up with Eesti Gaas’ unit Elenger Latvia to switch from oil to LNG as it looks to cut emissions and costs.

Prior to completing the onsite station, Elenger Latvia first set up a temporary mobile LNG station at Unda’s fish canery.

This marked the first time in Latvia the firm used a two-step process in constructing the LNG station, it said.

“As a result we have reduced energy costs over 30%,” said Arturs Bubiss, chairman of Unda’s board.

Davis Skulte, head of Elenger Latvia added that LNG stations help industrial firms operating outside the gas network areas.

“In the absence of a gas pipeline, natural gas can be liquefied and transported by trucks and regasified on site. Even after these additional costs, gas remains an advantageous solution,” he said.
