Fortuna FLNG project news

Published by

Ophir, together with its partners in the project, have decided to prioritise one of the alternative funding solutions that would see a leading Asian bank provide funding of up to US$1.2bn, on similar commercial terms to those agreed earlier this year with the group of three Chinese banks.

These discussions are at an advanced stage and whilst significant progress was made towards closing out the financing in December, it has not proven possible in the limited time available. These discussions are now continuing into the New Year.

Upon confirmation of the financing the project will proceed to a Final Investment Decision.

Furthermore, Ophir is collaborating with OneLNG to confirm a prompt start to Fortuna Project.

Nick Cooper, Chief Executive of Ophir, commented: “We are now focusing our efforts on closing out the prioritised solution and remain confident of commencing the Fortuna project in early 2018.”
