EXMAR has confirmed that it has completed the commissioning of the Tango FLNG project.
The performance acceptance tests has been successful, and the first cargo has been offloaded and will be exported out of Argentina.
With this first shipment, the start-up of the Tango FLNG is accomplished in a record time following the contract signing in November 2018 and delivery acceptance of the unit in Bahia Blanca in February 2019.
The achievement of this milestone has been possible thanks to the cooperation between the teams of YPF and EXMAR.
For YPF, the delivery of the first LNG cargo from the Vaca Muerta shale gas reserves marks the entry of Argentina as an LNG exporting nation.
Nicolas Saverys, EXMAR’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “For EXMAR, the successful performance test in Bahia Blanca confirms the technical capabilities of the Tango FLNG. Tango FLNG is the first FLNG operating in the Americas and this historic milestone clearly proves EXMAR’s front runner position for cost competitive and quick-to-market floating liquefaction solutions.”
The unit is expected to be fully on stream after the Argentine winter season.
