The FSRU will send out Regasified Liquefied Natural gas via subsea pipeline connected to the national grid

After 25 days of the commissioning of vessel ‘Summit LNG’, the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) of Summit LNG Terminal Co Ltd (SLNG) got its first ship-to-ship (STS) transfer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on Thursday.

The FSRU received 159,000 cubic meters of LNG from Oman Trading International some 6 km off Moheshkhali, Cox’s Bazar in the Bay, with the next transfer due early next month, says a press release.

The FSRU will send out Regasified Liquefied Natural gas (RLNG) via subsea pipeline connected to the national grid.

The LNG tanker “Creole Spirit” loaded the super-chilled fuel in Bethioua, Algeria, the media release added.

Rupantarita Prakritik Gas Company Limited on behalf of its parent organization, Bangladesh Oil, Gas and Mineral Corporation, known as Petrobangla, certified the completion of the transfer.

The FSRU is the second of its kind in the country, after the US-based Excelerate Energy started injecting re-gasified LNG to the national grid at Moheshkhali terminal in August last year on a pilot basis.

Local energy giant Summit LNG Terminal Co Ltd (SLNG) is a subsidiary of Summit Power International (SPI), and is a company of Summit-Mitsubishi consortium.

Mitsubishi, the Japanese trading giant, acquired 25 percent of SLNG in August 2018 and is represented on the Board.

The ‘Summit LNG’ began commercial supply date (CSD) in Bangladesh on 29th April in 2019 with a send-out capacity of 500 million cubic feet per day (mmcfd) of natural gas.

It had carried LNG from Qatar and later regasified liquefied natural gas (RLNG) before supplying it to the national grid.

In August 2017, Summit signed a 15-year agreement with US-based Excelerate Energy for the FSRU.

Excelerate Energy commissioned its Moheshkhali Floating LNG (MLNG) terminal – Bangladesh’s first LNG import facility in August 2018. Since then, MLNG has imported 27 cargoes of LNG and delivered in excess, 70 million British thermal units of natural gas into Bangladesh.
