Published by Lydia Woellwarth,
On 16 September, Excelerate Energy successfully reached a send-out capacity of 1.06 billion ft3 of natural gas on its floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) Experience – an industry record. The operation was completed during a performance test at the Guanabara Bay LNG regasification terminal in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The test was conducted as a requirement for authorisation to expand the terminal’s operational capacity from 0.71 billion ft3 to its maximum capacity of 1 billion ft3.
“This milestone is significant in that it demonstrates the capabilities of our FSRUs as a viable LNG importation solution that can grow with the changing needs of the market,” stated Excelerate Chief Commercial Officer Daniel Bustos. “We commend our crew for the safe and successful completion of this unprecedented test.”
