Towage and marine services provider Smit Lamnalco has secured a 20-year contract with the National Oil and Gas Authority of Bahrain (NOGA) to supply marine services to the Bahrain LNG import terminal.

Smit Lamnalco said in a statement it would deploy four LNG terminal compliant 70TBP tugs to provide escort, berthing and un-berthing of LNG carriers to the Bahrain terminal that includes a floating storage unit (FSU).

The facility is jointly owned by Nogaholding, the investment and development arm of Bahrain’s National Oil & Gas Authority (NOGA), and a consortium consisting of Teekay LNG Partners, Gulf Investment Corporation (GIC) and Samsung C&T.

Smit Lamnalco will also develop an infrastructure to support the project for the next 20 years employing the four tugs from its fleet, which will be replaced in the fifth year of the contract with four brand new purpose-built tugs for the following years.

The Bahrain LNG import terminal will be located offshore approximately 5 km east of the onshore receiving facility at the Khalifa Bin Salman port.

The terminal will supplement local gas production in Bahrain and ensure capacity to meet peak seasonal gas demand and industrial growth, according to Bahrain LNG.
