Technica were appointed by Excelerate Energy to conduct the Front End Engineering Design (FEED), Onshore and Offshore designs for the development of the Aguirre Offshore GasPort® Project.
This project is based on Excelerate’s floating offshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification facility. The Aguirre GasPort will be located approximately four miles offshore of the southern coast of Puerto Rico and will utilise one of Excelerate Energy’s 150,900m3 floating storage and regasification vessels. LNG supply will be delivered to an Excelerate Energy FSRU through periodic transfers from traditional LNG carriers via Excelerate Energy’s proprietary ship-to-ship LNG transfer protocol. The LNG supply transfer will take place while LNG is continually being regasified and delivered into the Central Aguirre Plant by the Energy Bridge FSRU, ensuring a continuous supply of natural gas.
The services were carried out and coordinated from our Grimsby based office with regular meetings in the UK and Puerto Rico. Following completion of the detailed design and successful permitting the facility is expected to be in service in 2015.
