Finland's Gasum boosts LNG business in Nordics with Linde deal
Finnish state-owned gas company Gasum said it had agreed to buy Linde’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) and marine bunkering business in Norway and Sweden.
Gasum did not disclose the value of the deal.
The assets include one LNG liquefaction plant, two LNG terminals, two LNG bunkering vessels and 48 gas filling stations. They will generate annual revenues of more than 100 million euros (£86 million), Gasum said in a statement.
The deal allows Gasum to grow further in the Nordic region and expand its product range for industrial, maritime and road transport customers that are increasing their LNG
use in a move away from heavier carbon fuels.
“The acquisition of AGA’s Clean Energy and Nauticor’s Marine Bunkering businesses is an integral part of our growth strategy,” Gasum’s Chief Executive Johanna Lamminen said.
Gasum said the deal was expected to close during 2020 pending approvals from competition authorities.

Best Practices in Supporting Front Line HPI Operations Remotely in Response to Covid-19
To ensure employee safety, HPI companies had to quickly pivot to a remote support model with many subject matter experts (SMEs) and engineering staff working remotely supporting front line, sequestered critical operations and field operators.
What are the best practices and lessons learned from this new remote operational support model? What have been technologies and work processes that are enabling effective and efficient remote operational support? Is this the “new norm” going forward even when the impact of Covid-19 abates? If not, how will remote support of critical operations be changed?
If this topic and questions are of interest to you and your organization, please attend this special HPI webinar with a panel of leading industry customer experts who will discuss their perspectives. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions for the panelists.
