Golar LNG said that its FLNG Hilli Episeyo, world’s first FLNG conversion, departed Singapore on Thursday.
The earlier than anticipated departure is due to the decision to complete LNG bunkering in Cameroon, rather than in Singapore, Golar LNG’s statement reads.
The voyage to Cameroon is expected to take between 32 and 40 days.
Earlier this month, the FLNG Hilli Episeyo left the Keppel Shipyard following mechanical completion. Since then the vessel was at deep anchorage, undergoing marine commissioning.
The FLNG was converted from a 1975 built Moss LNG carrier with a storage capacity of 125,000 cubic meters, by Keppel for LNG shipper Golar.
The Hilli Episeyo is designed for a liquefaction capacity of about 2.4 million tons of LNG per annum and will be put in operation offshore Kribi, Cameroon for Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures and Perenco Cameroon.
