PHOTO: Africa’s first FLNG en route to Cameroon

PHOTO Africa's first FLNG en route to CameroonOffshore towing specialist ALP has shared a great photo of the towage operation of the Golar Hilli Episeyo FLNG. Once operational, the FLNG will be first such unit active in Africa.

The unit, towed by ALP Striker ocean going tug, is on its way to Cameroon where it will be put in operation offshore Kribi, for Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures and Perenco Cameroon.

According to ALP, the photo shows the vessels rounding Cape of Good Hope with an average speed of 10 knots. After arrival to Cameroon ALP Striker will assist with the installation of the FLNG on site.

Data from VesselsValue shows the tug was sailing past Namibia on Tuesday, with the estimated arrival in Cameroon set for November 21.

Hilli Episeyo, constructed by Keppel in Singapore, is the world’s first converted Floating Liquefaction (FLNG) vessel. It 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.
