Cyprus could finally award the contract for the construction of the FSRU infrastructure as it plans to close its several times extended tender in July. 

A source at Cyprus’ Natural Gas Public Company (DEFA) told Platts that a contract for the installation of floating storage and regasification unit as well as the accompanying infrastructure is set for October.

Following the completion of a feasibility study in 2016, the Government of Cyprus decided to proceed with the development of a liquefied natural gas terminal in Vasilikos Bay, near Limassol.

The government launched a tender in last year calling for the construction of the €500 ($565.7 million) facility by November 30, 2020.

The source said the Cyprus government has launched a new expression of interest which revolves around the liquefied natural gas sale and purchase deal with a 3-5 year term, with the second part focusing on MSA suppliers.

DEFA is expected to agree 15 to 20 MSAs for the procurement of cargoes from the LNG spot market.
