Oslo, Norway - Sweden's AGA Gas AB, part of industrial gases supplier Linde, will construct Sweden's first terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG) near Stockholm with NCC. The terminal in Nynashamn is due online in 2011 and will import 250,000 tons of LNG per year, AGA Gas says.

"The terminal to be erected will be the first of its type in Sweden and will facilitate the utilization of natural gas in central Sweden," NCC says in a statement.
NCC says Finnish utility Fortum, among others, will "use the natural gas to replace petroleum for city-gas production in Stockholm." Sweden's Nynas refinery will also use the gas in its production of hydrogen gas.
NCC says the 275 million Swedish crown ($32.23 million) AGA Gas deal also envisaged the construction of a harbor capable of receiving tankers up to 160 meters in length and a 100-meter bridge to connect the site with the mainland.
