Bechtel said it has been selected by Delfin LNG, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fairwood Peninsula Energy, to perform front-end engineering and design for the floating liquefied natural gas vessel (FLNGV) to go into service at Port Delfin.
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.
Delfin LNG’s project will be the first offshore floating natural gas liquefaction facility in the United States, Bechtel said in a statement on Tuesday.
Upon the final investment decision, Bechtel is expected to design, build and commission the FLNGV.
Port Delfin will receive natural gas from the Delfin offshore pipeline. FLNGV will be able to disconnect from the port facility and move to protected waters during a hurricane.
