FLNG Hilli Episeyo leaves Keppel Shipyard

LNG shipping company Golar LNG has informed that the FLNG Hilli Episeyo departed from Keppel Shipyard in Singapore on Sunday, October 1.

The vessel was named Hilli Episeyo at a ceremony in Keppel Shipyard in early July.

Having reached mechanical completion, the world’s first converted Floating Liquefaction (FLNG) vessel has been moved to deep-water anchorage where Keppel Shipyard will complete final marine commissioning, Golar LNG informed on Monday.

Hilli Episeyo is currently expected to leave Singapore between October 15 and October 20.

Upon its completion, the FLNG unit will be put in operation offshore Kribi, Cameroon for Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures and Perenco Cameroon.

Hilli Episeyo was converted from the 1975-built Moss LNG carrier with a storage capacity of 125,000 m3. It was designed for a liquefaction capacity of about 2.4 million tonnes of LNG per annum.

The vessel recently became part of the first commercial Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) bunker transfer in Singapore. Namely, FueLNG, a joint venture between Keppel and Shell Eastern Petroleum (Pte) Ltd (Shell), completed truck-to-ship bunkering for the FLNG vessel.

Back in August, Golar LNG, Keppel and Black and Veatch entered into an agreement to sell its stakes in Golar Hilli, a company that owns the Hilli Episeyo FLNG vessel, to Golar LNG Partners. The sale is expected to close on or before April 30, 2018.
