Caribbean FLNG project delayed

Pacific Rubiales recently decided to postpone the start-up of the Caribbean FLNG project.

The company, however, confirmed that they will take delivery of the Caribbean FLNG in the course of the second half of 2015, project partner Exmar said in a statement on Thursday.

Pacific Rubiales remains committed to the project and is evaluating different alternatives, including the relocation of the Caribbean FLNG barge to a different site,  according to Exmar.

The Caribbean FLNG project, which is expected to be the world’s first operational FLNG facility, is being delivered by Wison Offshore & Marine at its yard in Nantong under a contract with Exmar.

The project comprises a non-propelled barge that will be operated off the Caribbean coast of Colombia for Pacific Rubiales, and equipped to convert 72.0 million scf/d of natural gas into LNG (about 500,000 tons of LNG per annum) for temporary storage and export.
