Bahrain LNG W.L.L. has completed the construction and commissioning of the liquified Natural Gas (LNG) receiving and regasification terminal located in the kingdom, according to a press release.
It is worth noting that this is the first LNG receiving and regasification terminal in the Middle East developed on a public-private partnership (PPP) basis. The client, which commissioned Bahrain LNG, plans to send out the last of the commissioning cargo so that the FSU Bahrain Spirit can redeploy on short‐term trade as intended.
The Terminal comprises of a Floating Storage Unit (FSU), an offshore LNG receiving jetty and breakwater, an adjacent regasification platform, subsea gas pipelines from the platform to shore, an onshore gas receiving facility, and an onshore nitrogen production facility.
Mohamed bin Khalifa Al‐Khalifa, Minister of Oil of the Kingdom of Bahrain, hailed the construction of the new terminal saying that “the achievement of construction completion for the Bahrain LNG receiving and regasification terminal is a critical milestone for this project which is of strategic importance to the energy sector of the Kingdom of Bahrain.”
