Gasum expands NW Europe bunkering network with LNG distribution license in Belgium

27 Apr 2022

Nordic energy company Gasum Ltd on Tuesday (26 April) said it has obtained a distribution license for liquified natural gas (LNG) on the Belgian market. 

The new LNG distribution license obtained on 17 March, 2022 will allow Gasum to deliver LNG to maritime customers in Belgium expanding its supply network in Northwestern European ports and waters. 

The license includes the important port of Zeebrugge, which is one of Europe’s leading pure car/truck carrier hubs. 

The number of LNG-powered car/truck carriers is growing rapidly, subsequently increasing the global demand for maritime LNG. 

“Obtaining this license underlines Gasum’s commitment to act as a reliable European maritime LNG supplier and enabler of maritime decarbonisation. It also supports our growth strategy and enables us to deliver safe and clean energy, which helps our customers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions considerably,” said Jacob Granqvist, Vice President at Gasum. 

“Moreover, the significance of the ARA region and Zeebrugge as a bunkering hub is likely to increase, which makes it a strategically important area for Gasum.”
