Nasdaq-listed Golar LNG Partners, a limited partnership formed by Golar LNG, said Monday that its floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) Golar Freeze is expected to “shortly arrive” offshore Jamaica.
The 125,000-cbm FSRU Golar Freeze will serve a 15-year charter for New Fortress Energy as an import facility supplying new gas-fired power plants.
Golar Freeze was previously converted into an FSRU from an LNG carrier and has a 4.9 billion cubic meters per year regasification capacity.
The start of commercial operations of the FSRU in Jamaica is expected during January next year, Golar LNG Partners said in its third-quarter report.
The vessel had been previously chartered by the Dubai Supply Authority (DUSUP).
Golar Freeze entered Dubai Dry-docks in July for dry-dock and minor modifications necessary to service its new LNG import project offshore Jamaica.
The vessel departed dry-dock on October 20, Golar LNG Partners said.
