Norway-based FSRU provider Höegh LNG said its recently delivered floating storage and regasification unit Höegh Esperanza lifted its first cargo at Gladstone Australia. 

Höegh said in its brief statement on social media this was the first FSRU to berth in Australia.

The FSRU is 294m long and 46m wide and has a storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters of LNG and a maximum regasification throughput of 750 million standard cubic feet per day.

According to the shipping data provided by VesselsValue, the FSRU Höegh Esperanza berthed at the QGC-operated Queensland Curtis LNG facility on Curtis Island, near Gladstone.

According to an earlier statement by Höegh LNG the vessel was intended to serve the Penco-Lirquén LNG import terminal and the accompanying onshore gas-fired power plant in Chile.

However, as the start of Chile’s third LNG import terminal has been delayed due to issues with the project’s environmental approval, the FSRU will be reallocated to a different project.

Höegh LNG said in its latest statement it was in advanced talks for intermediate employment of Höegh Esperanza on a combined FSRU and LNGC contract with seasonal use in FSRU mode until the anticipated start date of its contract in Chile.
