Singapore-based gas shipping giant BW said its FSRU BW Singapore, used as Egypt’s second LNG import terminal in Ain Sokhna Port, has achieved a milestone ship-to-ship (STS) transfer.

BW Singapore completed its 50th STS transfer since it started operations in Ain Sohna in October last year, BW said on Tuesday through its social media channels.

The shipping company confirmed in September last year it had been selected by Egas of Egypt to provide LNG regasification services under a five-year deal utilizing the FSRU.

The FSRU BW Singapore was built at Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea and has a storage capacity in excess of 170,000 cbm and a peak regasification capacity of 750 mmscfd.

Egypt, which turned from a net exporter to a net importer, also imports the chilled fuel via FSRU Höegh Gallant that commenced commercial operations in Ain Sokhna in April 2015 under a five-year contract with Egas.
