In India, the "Höegh Giant", a liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker used as a floating storage and regasification unit, arrived on Mar 1. It would be the first FSRU used in the country. H Energy chartered the tanker from Höegh LNG on a 10-year agreement.
H Energy would set up the FSRU at the company's Jaigarh LNG terminal in Maharashtra on the west coast of India, which was scheduled for commercial operation soon. The FSRU has a storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters and has an installed re-gasification capacity of 750 million cubic feet per day (equivalent to six million tons annually). Re-gasified LNG would be delivered to the 56-kilometre-long Jaigarh-Dabhol natural gas pipeline, connecting the LNG terminal to the national gas grid.
