Delta Picks Regas Tech for Vietnamese LNG Project

Stena Power & LNG Solutions will license its transfer and regasifcation technology to Delta Offshore Energy for the Singapore company's import terminal in Vietnam, the companies said September 2.

The terminal, in the southern Vietnamese province of Bac Lieu, faces very challenging metocean conditions which make a conventional jetty-based system impractical. So the Sinaporean operator said it worked with Stena to find an alternative.

DOE's managing director for engineering Bobby Quintos said: "The additional benefits of a lower Capex and modular design also fits nicely to the DOE model of innovation and efficiency in our LNG to power solutions."

The Bac Lieu LNG facility is expected to start up in 2024 and supply a 3.2-GW power plant DOE plans to build. DOE also awarded a contract to US EPC firm McDermott International in late August for the front-end engineering design of a 35-km pipeline to carry gas from the LNG terminal to the plant.
