In August 2015, BW announced the winning of an EGAS tender for the provision of regasification services in Ain Sokhna, Egypt, LNG Floating Storage and Regasification unit (FSRU) BW Singapore has been in full operation since October 2015.
The vessel was delivered and commissioned in three months from the date of contract-signing, which is a world record. Since operations commenced, BW Singapore has carried out more than 10 ship-to-ship (STS) operations and sent out between 500-600 million ft3/d of natural gas on a daily basis into the national grid. This was made possible by the team at The Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS).
BW sees EGAS as a long-term strategic partner in the LNG/FSRU space. BW has noted recent press reports regarding payment issues in Egypt, but can confirm that payment for due hire has been received.
