Background

Tornio Manga LNG Terminal is a liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification terminal currently under construction in Lapland, extremely close to the Swedish border. The project is being built by Manga Terminal Oy, a joint venture of Outokumpu Group (45%), Svenskt Stål AB (SSAB) (25%), Skangas (25%), and EPV Energy (5%). The construction contract was signed with Finnish firm Wärtsilä in December 2013. Construction began in December 2014, and is scheduled to be completed in July 2018.[4] Gas from the terminal is expected to be used by industries, mines, and gas consumers located in northern Finland and northern Sweden.[5]

It was reported in 2014 that the Finnish state awarded a subsidy of €33,155,400 for construction of the terminal.[2]

The terminal entered commercial operation in November 2017.[6]
