Golar Eskimo FSRU arrives in Jordan

Golar Eskimo FSRU arrives in Jordan

Jordan is about to join the club of LNG importing nations as the FSRU Golar Eskimo, loaded with a cargo from Qatar, docked on Monday at the port of Aqaba.

This marks a turning point in Jordan’s energy imports providing relief for the nation’s power producers.

The FSRU, to be used as an LNG import terminal, will be moored at a purpose built structure constructed by the Aqaba Development Corporation off the Red Sea port of Aqaba.

Capable of storing 160,000 cubic metres of LNG and delivering up to 500 MMSCFD with a peaking capacity of 750 MMSCFD, the FSRU will connect to the Jordan gas transmission pipeline that delivers the fuel to power plants throughout the country.

The FSRU, built by Samsung Heavy Industries, visited Keppel shipyard in Singapore during February to conclude modifications to the vessel in advance of her going into service in Jordan.

Jordan so far signed only one agreement to import the chilled gas via the Aqaba LNG terminal. The deal was signed with Shell for the delivery of 4.2 million cubic metres of gas per day for a period of five years.
