Bechtel was selected by Delfin LNG, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fairwood Peninsula Energy Corp., to perform front-end engineering and design for the first U.S.-based floating liquefied natural gas vessel (FLNGV) to go into service at Port Delfin.
Port Delfin is a proposed deepwater port and floating LNG facility that will be located about 50 miles off the coast of Cameron Parish, LA. Upon the final investment decision, Bechtel is expected to design, build and commission the FLNGV. Plans call for Port Delfin to receive natural gas from the Delfin Offshore Pipeline.
Once in service, the FLNGV will be able to disconnect from the port facility and move to protected waters in case of a hurricane.
