Norwegian downstream player Gasnor, a unit of Molgas, said it has signed a deal to supply LNG fuel to German oil and gas company Wintershall Dea.
Gasnor said in a statement it would supply liquefied natural gas to the LNG-powered offshore supply vessel Viking Princess serving Wintershall Dea on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The Norwegian firm added it would deliver the fuel from its LNG bunkering terminal at Mongstad but it did not reveal any additional information regarding the contract.
Wintershall Dea has chartered the 2013-built LNG-powered vessel from Norwegian shipping company Eidesvik Offshore last year. The one-year contract started in December 2020.
According to the oil and gas producer, the vessel would help it reduce annual emissions on supply vessel services to the Brage platform in the North Sea by up to 30 percent.
In addition to serving Brage, the vessel will provide services to the nearby Veslefrikk, and Statfjord A, B, and C platforms through a collaboration agreement Wintershall Dea has with Equinor.
The 90 meters long and 24 meters wide Viking Princess can run on both LNG and MGO. It also has a battery package for effective energy management.
