Hamworthy Supplies Asian FSRU

Hamworthy has secured the contract to supply liquefied natural gas handling technology for what will be Asia’s first Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU). The marine and offshore fluid handling systems specialist has signed a contract with Golar LNG to deliver a liquefied natural gas regasification system for the West Java FSRU, which will be Indonesia's first LNG regasification terminal. In October, Golar LNG Energy announced that it had been selected by PT Nusantara Regas, a joint venture between Pertamina and PGN, to provide the West Java FSRU. The project will see the existing LNG carrier Khannur converted into a floating terminal that can be situated offshore or at a new or purpose-built jetty/pier. The FSRU will receive LNG from offloading LNG carriers and the onboard regasification system will provide gas send-out through pipelines to shore. As part of a letter of intent, Golar will enter into a long term time charter for the lease of the FSRU and associated mooring until the end of 2022, with provision for automatic extension options to 2025. The Golar group has already completed two FSRU conversions over the last three years, with LNG handling equipment supplied by Hamworthy.  The FSRU for the West Java FSRU Project will be similar in design to the latest of these projects, the Golar Freeze, recently delivered to Dubai.
