The Bahrain Spirit FSU has a capacity of approximately 173 000 m3, and is currently anchored in Fujairah. Reuters reports that the vessel is on a 20-year charter to Bahrain LNG, which is developing a regasification terminal at the Khalifa bin Salman Port facility.
Aside from the FSU, Reuters reports that the terminal will also house an offshore LNG receiving jetty and breakwater, as well as a regasification platform, subsea gas pipelines (from the platform to the shore), an onshore gas receiving facility, and an onshore nitrogen production facility.
According to Reuters, once the LNG is delivered, seawater will be used to warm it back into a gaseous state. Then, a buried pipeline to shore will transfer the gas into the existing natural gas pipeline network, which is operated by Bahrain Petroleum Co. – the national oil company.
