State-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) is reportedly planning to start a liquefied natural gas FSRU in the second half of 2016.
According to a report by Reuters, the floating LNG import terminal is being supplied by U.S. company Excelerate Energy.
The LNG import terminal’s import capacity will be about 1 million tonnes per year, the reported added.
The UAE already imports LNG via a floating terminal supplied by Excelerate Energy off the coast of Dubai.
In 2010, Dubai Supply Authority (DUSUP) completed the construction of the LNG terminal in Jebel Ali port which allows the import of LNG via a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).
LNG tankers berth alongside the Explorer FSRU, which regasifies the LNG using seawater through a heat exchanger, and then flows the gas into the onshore pipeline network.
