Jumbo Offshore, the heavy lift specialist, said it has completed the work on the Moheskhali floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal in Bangladesh.
The company was contracted by Geocean in 2017 to transport and install the mooring system for the FSRU, Jumbo said in its statement. This involved installing eight suction piles/anchors, one pipeline end terminal (PLEM) and one pad as well as scouring protection.
Mobilization began in mid-December 2017 with the installation execution going ahead in early January 2018. Works on the project have now been completed by the Jumbo Javelin, the company said.
The Moheskhali LNG import terminal is being developed off the shores of Moheskhali Island in the Bay of Bengal by Summit LNG Terminal, a unit of Summit Power International.
It will be the country’s first LNG import terminal and is expected to help secure the future provision of energy for Bangladesh.
In November 2017, Summit LNG Terminal contracted a consortium comprising Geocean SAS and MacGregor to provide the design, engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation and testing of the fixed infrastructure (FI) for the terminal.
The Moheshkhali floating LNG import terminal will include a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), a subsea buoy system and a subsea pipeline, which will connect the terminal to an onshore pipeline system.
The floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) will be provided by Excelerate Energy on a 15-year charter agreement.
