Bahrain LNG terminal to start operations by year-end
Bahrain’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification terminal is now expected to start operations by year-end, Teekay LNG Partners said in its quarterly financial results, later than initially expected.
The start-up of the terminal had been delayed at least twice, with the last start-up date said to be in the third quarter of the year.
Teekay, which owns a share in the terminal, did not mention the reason for the delay. Chief Executive Mark Kremin said “good progress” had been made on the terminal, however, with the start-up now expected before end of the year.
Teekay has a 30% share in the Bahrain LNG joint venture, which owns the LNG receiving and regasification terminal under construction in Bahrain. Other shareholders include the National Oil and Gas Authority (NOGA) of Bahrain, Samsung Construction and Trading and the Gulf Investment Corp.
The terminal will house a floating storage unit (FSU), an offshore LNG receiving jetty and breakwater, a regasification platform, subsea gas pipelines from the platform to shore, an onshore gas receiving facility, and an onshore nitrogen production facility, according to the Bahrain LNG website.
The FSU, the Bahrain Spirit, is currently anchored in Bahrain anchorage, Refinitiv shiptracking data showed. (Reporting by Jessica Jaganathan; editing by Uttaresh.V)
Best Practices in Supporting Front Line HPI Operations Remotely in Response to Covid-19
To ensure employee safety, HPI companies had to quickly pivot to a remote support model with many subject matter experts (SMEs) and engineering staff working remotely supporting front line, sequestered critical operations and field operators.
What are the best practices and lessons learned from this new remote operational support model? What have been technologies and work processes that are enabling effective and efficient remote operational support? Is this the “new norm” going forward even when the impact of Covid-19 abates? If not, how will remote support of critical operations be changed?
If this topic and questions are of interest to you and your organization, please attend this special HPI webinar with a panel of leading industry customer experts who will discuss their perspectives. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions for the panelists.
