Gasum has expanded its industry segment in Sweden by signing a contract with Nynas AB.

The contract ensures flexible deliveries of natural gas to Nynas’ refinery in Gothenburg. Nynas is Gasum’s first customer connected to the Swedish gas grid, marking a significant milestone in establishing Gasum’s position in the Nordic gas market.

Gasum has signed an agreement with the Swedish oil and bitumen company Nynas AB for delivering natural gas to its refinery in Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden. The natural gas will be used as fuel in the refinery’s hot oil burner, and in its new combined atmospheric and vacuum heater for the crude unit on site.

“We are extremely pleased with this contract. Nynas is our first industry customer in the Swedish gas grid, so this is a significant milestone for Gasum. This really emphasises our role as a gas market operator serving the whole Nordic region. As a truly Nordic energy company, we hope to provide our industry customers with a unique and competitive offering, which will help them in transitioning towards more sustainable sources of energy,” said Gasum’s vice president Tommy Mattila.

“This is an example of Nynas implementing a series of investments and measures in our refinery system with the aim of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. We work actively with suppliers and other partners to seek new and effective solutions to meet the climate challenges facing the industry”, added Rolf Allgulander, Nynas vice president, manufacturing.
