LNG - clean fuel with reasonable cost
Fully guaranteed LNG supply, on shore and on sea
Eesti Gaas is the biggest liquefied natural gas supplier in the Baltic region. We operate a fleet of LNG semi-trailers and have extensive experience with various sources of supply, logistics and technological solutions, guaranteeing a 100% LNG supply security.
We also help our customers to create necessary LNG infrastructure.
Our subsidiary Elenger Marine offers LNG bunkering services to environmentally friendly ships in the Gulf of Finland area of the Baltic Sea.

LNG supply models
Basic supply means that Elenger involvement is limited to LNG transport to customer.Full supply means that Elenger also takes the responsibility for construction and maintenance of the LNG station on customer’s territory.
The structure of the LNG station
- Cryogenic tank trailer
LNG is delivered to the station in special cryogenic tank trailers where the gas will be held under low pressure. Average trailer holds up to 18,5 tons of liquefied gas which gives 25 600 m3 of gaseous natural gas upon re-gasification.
- Cryogenic containers
These are used to store liquefied natural gas. The design of the container allows storing the fuel in low temperatures up to -162 degrees. Containers come in different sizes but the average is around 40-60 m3. One station can hold several containers.
- Regasification unit
- Natural gas regulating station Lowering the pressure of natural gas before it reaches the consumption point.
Natural gas is odorless. Adding odor to the gas will help detect potential leakages more easily.
- Plant boiler room
LNG station setting-up process
The design and construction of customer’s liquefied natural gas station may take several months. In order to enable customer start using natural gas as soon as possible and so save costs, we provide a temporary mobile LNG solution.
A portable LNG station is transported to customer’s property for temporary use until a stationary LNG solution is being constructed and completed.
What is LNG?
LNG, or liquefied natural gas, is produced by cooling ordinary natural gas to about -160 degrees centigrade.
Once liquefied natural gas needs only 1/600 the storage space it does in its gaseous state. Liquefaction of natural gas makes transportation and storage easy and economical. That means it’s possible to supply the areas and properties that are not served by gas pipelines.
Liquefied natural gas is transported by ship, rail or road in cryogenic tanks. At the destination it is re-gasified. The obtained gas is even cleaner than conventional natural gas because prior to liquefaction process, water, CO2, H2S and hydrocarbons are removed.
When using LNG for heating or in production, the storage and re-gasification costs must be taken into account. Therefore it fits better for energy solutions for bigger properties.
