LNG shipper Golar said its FLNG Hilli Episeyo located offshore Kribi in Cameroon started producing liquefied natural gas (LNG).

At the end of February, Golar said its FLNG Hilli Episeyo, that was converted from a 1975 built Moss LNG carrier with a storage capacity of 125,000 cubic meters by Keppel, was undergoing commissioning.

Following its arrival in Cameroon in late November 2017, the vessel completed the ship-to-ship transfer of cooldown LNG with the LNG carrier Golar Bear in mid-December 2017, which was followed by the introduction of feed gas from the onshore processing plant.

FLNG Hilli Episeyo is the world’s second floating LNG producer in operation after the first ever FLNG project came on stream in Malaysia last year, developed by Petronas.

 

Golar Gandria for Fortuna FLNG

 

Golar added in its latest statement, that its LNG carrier, Golar Gandria has been removed from layup and is now at Keppel Shipyard in Singapore.

Once the conversion is complete, the vessel will be deployed as the FLNG unit for London-based Ophir Energy’s Fortuna FLNG project in Equatorial Guinea.

Ophir recently said it was still in talks for the financing of the FLNG project.

The project financing is the last remaining hurdle before the project can reach the final investment decision (FID).
