Exmar moves CFLNG to Cosco shipyard in China
Belgium’s Exmar, the Nicolas Savery-led shipowner said Thursday it has relocated its Caribbean FLNG (CFLNG) to a temporary location at Cosco shipyard in China.
The barge-based floating natural gas liquefaction and storage facility was previously located at the Wison Offshore & Marine’s yard in Nantong, China.
It has been in lay-up at the Wison yard since its delivery to Exmar in July last year.
To remind, CFLNG was scheduled for delivery to Pacific Exploration and Production in 2015, however, in March last year, the agreement was terminated.
Since then, Exmar has been trying to secure an employment for the facility but with no luck.
At Cosco, the FLNG will be “awaiting final deployment with several candidate projects under consideration,” Exmar said.
The FLNG has a storage capacity of 16,100-cbm and a liquefaction capacity of 500,000 tons per year.
