LONDON (ICIS)--Linde has been commissioned by Skangass to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal near Gothenburg, Sweden, the German-based industrial gases producer said on Friday.

The contract, which involves the construction of a mid-scale LNG import terminal in Lysekil, about 100km from Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden, is worth €44m ($56.4m), the company said. The work includes engineering, procurement, construction and installation, according to Linde.

The new terminal will have a storage capacity of 30,000 cubic metres of LNG, and will start operations in spring 2014. LNG for the terminal will come from a mid-scale LNG plant near Stavanger, Norway, also built for Skangass by Linde, the company said.
