Neste Jacobs celebrates the completion of EPCM services for Finland's first LNG import terminal in Pori

Technology, engineering and project management company Neste Jacobs has successfully carried out the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) project for Skangas' LNG import terminal from the years 2014 to 2016. The LNG terminal of 30 000 m³ at Pori features state of the art engineering solutions being fully equipped for unloading ships, storing LNG, ship bunkering, truck loading by LNG as well as distribution of regasified LNG by pipeline to an industrial park.

Safety of the operation of the LNG terminal have been secured by Neste Jacobs' extensive process risk evaluations and safety automation assessments carried out during the engineering phase of the project.

One of the most significant characteristics of Pori terminal is the high level of automation enabling even the possibility for remote operation. Pori LNG terminal was opened for commercial operation in July 2016.

"We are very happy and proud to have had the opportunity to be the EPCM contractor for Skangas in this Finland's first LNG import terminal project", says Jarmo Suominen, CEO of Neste Jacobs. "By executing this technically challenging project, our experts in Porvoo and Turku have even further strengthened the know-how of LNG processing within Neste Jacobs, putting us in the pole position amongst the Nordic engineering companies serving the gas industry".

"The Pori terminal is the first LNG terminal in Finland and we at Skangas are satisfied to have this challenging project successfully completed as planned. This terminal boasts lots of modern technology and automation and we are looking forward to straightforward and reliable operation for years to come", explains Tommy Mattila, Sales and Marketing Director of Skangas.
