Cyprus issues tender for LNG terminal at Vasilikos Bay
The Natural Gas Public Company of Cyprus (DEFA), acting on behalf of the Natural Gas Infrastructure Company (ETYFA), announces the publication of the tender documents for the design, construction and operation of the LNG import terminal to be located at Vasilikos Bay, near Limassol.
Following the publication of the tender documents the Chairman of DEFA, Mr Symeon Kassianides said, “This is an important milestone for DEFA, and for the people of Cyprus, who will soon benefit from the cost savings and environmental benefits from the use of natural gas.
We expect to issue a request for expressions of interest for the supply of LNG in the coming weeks and a full tender early in 2019”.
The LNG Terminal will include a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), a jetty for mooring the FSRU, a jetty borne gas pipeline and related infrastructure. The LNG Terminal will be completed in 2020 and has secured a funding of 40% of the CAPEX, up to €101 million, as a grant from the EU under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) financial instruments.
DEFA would like to note that, as per the procurement regulations, all relevant communication
regarding the Tender should be in accordance with the procedures described in the tender
As discussed in the HPI Market Data 2019 report, published in November by Gas Processing & LNG’s sister publication, Hydrocarbon Processing, rising propane and ethane supplies in the US have been enabled by greater production of shale gas.
Industry Trends: Norway targets global LNG market

Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
