Höegh LNG has announced that its floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), Höegh Gallant, successfully completed all performance and commissioning tests on 29 April.
The FSRU has now commenced commercial operations under a five-year FSRU contract with Egas in Egypt.
Sveinung J.S. Støhle, President and CEO of Höegh LNG, commented: "We are very proud to have commenced commercial operations on our third FSRU in the last six months, which shows the strength and depth of our technical and operational expertise. In addition, our project with Egas is a prime example of the speed and flexibility an FSRU solution offers for importing LNG; the contract was signed only five months before commercial operations commenced.
“I am particularly pleased with our ability to deliver the optimal technical solution to Egas in such a short time and within budget, and I am looking forward to servicing Egas in their efforts to supply Egypt's fast growing natural gas market."
