FLNG Ship En Route for Cameroon

Golar LNG said October 12 that FLNG Hilli Episeyo departed Singapore at 10am local time that day.

"The earlier than anticipated departure reflects an operational decision to complete LNG bunkering in Cameroon rather than in Singapore," the shipowner said late afternoon UK time.

"The voyage to Cameroon is expected to take between 32 and 40 days," it added. That should mean that the first floating liquefaction (FLNG) vessel to be deployed offshore Africa reaches waters off Cameroon in mid to late November. 

West Africa's first FLNG project is led by Perenco and Cameroon's state-owned SNH, with the vessel on long-term charter from Golar LNG.

Hilli Episeyo left its shipyard September 29 for final marine commissioning and then was expected to depart for Cameroon between October 15 and 20.
