India receives their first ever FSRU in Jaigarh

Engie’s GDF Suez Cape Ann departed from Tianjin 6-Jan-2018, where the vessel was previously stationed, according to a charter agreement with CNOOC since 2013. She arrived offshore Jaigarh 27-Apr, where the vessel was delivered to H-Energy. ENGIE and H-Energy have signed a charter agreement with a minimum duration of 5 years, starting in 2018.

The new installation will have an initial capacity of 4.0 mtpa during phase 1 and is also able to reload LNG onto other vessels. During phase 2, the installation is expected to increase capacity to a total of 8 mtpa.

H-Energy has also signed a joint venture agreement with K-Line for a second FSRU in West Bengal. The project is planned to commence operations in 2020, with K-Line delivering the FSRU for the project.
