To remind, the facility has been in operation since 2015. Since then, Excelerate has been providing LNG regasification services in Pakistan.

Qatar’s LNG shipper Nakilat and U.S. floating LNG player Excelerate Energy own the FSRU Exquisite through a joint venture established in 2018.

It has a cargo-carrying capacity of 150,900 cubic metres. Also, its peak regasification rate is 690 million cubic feet per day. Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering built it in South Korea and delivered it back in 2009. The FSRU has been in service ever since.
