Bomin Linde LNG has today signed a letter of Intent with Furetank Rederi, a Swedish shipping company, initiating a long-term cooperation regarding the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Bomin Linde LNG will supply the Furetank Rederi vessels with a new LNG bunker supply vessel both in ports and potentially offshore, using DP2 equipment.

Sonja Nesshoever, Director LNG Portfolio of Bomin Linde LNG, said, “We are looking forward to develop a safe and flexible LNG supply chain in cooperation with a frontrunner like Furetank Rederi. As an important step forward to reduce costs for our clients and to optimise shipping routes we will also jointly explore the possibility of introducing LNG in Lightering Areas of the Baltic Sea.”

Lightering Areas are designated zones which allow for offshore bunkering outside port boundaries.
