France’s Engie, and the Turkish construction companies Kolin and Kalyon have inaugurated the Etki LNG terminal, the country’s first FSRU-based import terminal located close to Çakmakli, Izmir.

Engie has been selected by project developers Kolin and Kalyon to deliver the fast-track FSRU based solution, and the company committed the 145,000-cbm Neptune, one of the two FSRU of its fleet, to the project.

The vessel is owned by Höegh LNG Partners (50 percent), MOL (48.5 percent) and Tokyo LNG Tanker (1.5 percent), and is under a long-term charter with Engie.

The overall infrastructure developed by Kolin and Kalyon includes a jetty and an onshore gas pipeline to connect the terminal to the national gas transport grid, operated by Botas.

The terminal’s development, from the final investment decision to completion took six and a half months, Engie said.

The Neptune arrived at Etki LNG terminal berth on December 11 fully loaded with LNG and proceeded immediately with commissioning operations, the statement reads.

With a capacity of up to 20 million cubic meters per day of gas send-out, the new Etki LNG terminal will contribute to Turkey’s natural gas security of supply, especially in the winter period. It will complement Turkey’s two existing onshore LNG terminals, enhancing the country’s diversification of gas import structures as well as supply sources.
