Norway-based FSRU provider, Höegh LNG signed a shipbuilding contract with the South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries for its ninth FSRU in January. 

The vessel, currently known as HN2909 will have a storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters and a regasification capacity of 1,000 MMscf/day, with full trading capabilities.

On Friday, Höegh LNG, through its social media channels, showed the HN2909 hull floating at the South Korean shipyard.

The vessel is scheduled for delivery in 2018 and it was assigned to serve the charter deal Höegh LNG signed with Pakistan’s Global Energy Infrastructure Limited that had a scheduled start-up in the second quarter of 2018.

However, following unsuccessful negotiations with GEIL, the consortium comprising Höegh LNG, Qatar Petroleum, Total, Mitsubishi and ExxonMobil, that was set to develop the project dissolved. Due to the dissolution, Höegh LNG is evaluating its options in regard to the FSRU agreement it has signed with GEIL, and is looking for alternative employment for the FSRU.
