Golar in Cameroon FLNG deal

Golar LNG signed a heads of agreement with Societe Nationale de Hydrocarbures and Perenco Cameroon for the development of an FLNG export project located 20km off the coast of Cameroon and utilizing Golar’s floating liquefaction technology (GoFLNG).

The HOA is premised on the allocation of 500 bcf of natural gas reserves from offshore Kribi fields, which will be exported to global markets via the GoFLNG facility Golar HIlli, now under construction at the Keppel Shipyard in Singapore, Golar said in a statement.

Golar will provide the liquefaction facilities and services under a tolling agreement to SNH and Perenco as owners of the upstream joint venture who also intend to produce LPG’s for the local market in association with the project. It is anticipated that the allocated reserves will be produced at the rate of some 1.2 million tonnes of LNG per annum over an approximate eight-year period.

According to the statement, it is expected that during the first half of 2015 definitive commercial agreements will be executed and necessary licenses and approvals secured for the production, liquefaction, and export of the reserves, and that production will commence in the first half of 2017.

The project will be the first floating LNG export project in Africa and will see Cameroon joining the small number of LNG exporting nations, Golar added.
