Skangass aims at starting the construction work during 2015.
The permission is given for a storing capacity of 30 000 m3 LNG and a handling of up to 500 000 tonnes LNG each year.
The planned LNG terminal is an important part of the expansion of LNG infrastructure in Sweden and the Baltic Sea.
The investment decision will probably be taken during spring 2015. The terminal will be developed in cooperation with Gävle Hamn that invests in building the infrastructure in the harbour area.
