Egypt: BW Singapore FSRU moves to port in Sumed
Singapore-based gas shipping giant BW said its FSRU BW Singapore has been relocated to the port in Sumed, Egypt to continue its contract with the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS).
The FSRU so far served as Egypt’s second import terminal in the port of Ain Sokhna, starting full operation October 2015.
In a brief social media statement, BW’s LNG unit noted that the relocation of the FSRU, which was a business decision made by EGAS, demonstrates the flexibility to optimize operations for the charterer.
BW Singapore, serving EGAS under a five-year charter, has a storage capacity in excess of 170,000 cbm and a peak regasification capacity of 750 mmscfd.
