LNG - clean fuel with reasonable cost
Fully guaranteed LNG supply
Elenger is the biggest LNG supplier in the Baltic region. We operate a fleet of nine LNG semi-trailers and have extensive experience with various sources of supply, logistics and technological solutions, guaranteeing a 100% LNG supply security.
We help our customers to create necessary LNG infrastructure.

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
For receival and regasification of LNG, an LNG station is installed at customer’s property, including LNG container and steamers.
- 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 LNG which gives 25 600 m3 of gaseous natural gas upon re-gasification.
- Cryogenic containers
These are used to store LNG. 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 stationLowering the pressure of natural gas before it reaches the consumption point.
- Boiler room, odorising
Natural gas is odourless. Adding odour to the gas will help detect potential leakages more easily.
- Plant boiler room
Setting-up process of the LNG station
The design and construction of customer’s LNG 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 LNG to areas and properties that are not served by gas pipelines.
LNG is transported by ship, rail or road in cryogenic tanks. At the destination, LNG 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 LNG fits better for energy solutions for bigger properties.
