Bangladesh Starts Second FSRU

Bangladesh’s second floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) has started supplying regasified LNG to the national grid.

Summit LNG Terminal successfully completed the commissioning of the FSRU April 29, Summit Power International said the same day.

The vessel, Summit LNG, arrived last week carrying LNG from Qatar. The FSRU can vaporise 500mn ft3/day of pipeline gas.

Summit LNG Terminal, a unit of Summit Power International, has signed the FSRU time charter party agreement for 15 years with Excelerate Energy. This project is part of Summit Power International’s $1bn investment programme by 2020 to deliver power and gas to Bangladesh.
