Operations at the liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal at the Moheshkhali Island in Bangladesh have started following delays caused by bad weather conditions and technical issues.

FSRU Excellence that has delivered the commissioning cargo to Bangladesh Oil, Gas and Mineral Corporation (Petrobangla) in April started operations on Saturday, the country’s energy minister, Nasrul Hamid told Reuters.

The FSRU Excellence, owned by the Texas-based floating LNG solutions provider Excelerate Energy has a 500 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (MMscf/d) regasification capacity. It will enable Bangladesh to import liquefied natural gas and feed it to the power projects in the energy-starved country.

While the initial delay was caused by the bad weather conditions that made it unsafe for the vessel to dock at the mooring facility.

It reportedly sprung into operation during last week, however, a leak in the onshore facility caused a new delay.

Hamid said the facility started feeding gas to the national grid, marking the first step in the country’s efforts to cater to the growing demand.
