Delfin LNG said it has signed a joint development agreement with Höegh LNG in relation to its US-based Delfin liquefied natural gas deepwater port project.
The project is a planned floating liquefaction, deepwater port designed to export liquefied natural gas from the Gulf of Mexico and is positioned to be the first floating deepwater liquefaction project in the United States, the company said in a statement.
The Delfin LNG project consists of onshore gas compression facilities, a 42-inch pipeline to transport natural gas offshore, and a deepwater port with four moorings and four floating liquefaction vessels. The project is planned to have an ultimate LNG send-out capacity of 13 million metric tonnes per annum.
Höegh LNG will act as a co-owner, owner’s engineer and operator of the floating liquefaction vessels.
