Delfin Midstream has signed a design and engineering contract for the development of floating liquified natural gas (FLNG) vessels for its deepwater port projects in North America, reports gas world.
Developing FLNG units
The US export infrastructure company has appointed Wison Offshore & Marine to develop the FLNG units to support the export of US natural gas to worldwide markets.
Port Delfin is a proposed deepwater port and floating LNG facility that will be located approximately 50 miles off the coastline of Cameron Parish, Louisiana. The Delfin LNG project is believed to be the first offshore floating natural gas liquefaction facility in the US.
Global merchant commodities firm Hartree Partners LP is conducting marketing operations to Chinese LNG buyers on Delfin’s behalf.
Deepwater port project
Delfin has been developing the Delfin LNG Deepwater Port project, which can support four FLNG vessels with a combined export capacity of up to 13.3 million tonnes per annum.
The company has secured commercial agreements for LNG sales and liquefaction services and is in the final phase towards FID on its first two FLNG vessels.
Wouter Pastoor, Chief Operating Officer of Delfin, said, “Wison’s goal is to continue with a full front-end engineering and design later this year such that FLNG vessel construction can start at their shipyard in mid 2024.”
