Excelerate Energy L.P. (Excelerate) completed its 2000th commercial ship-to-ship (STS) transfer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on 3 April 2021, at Excelerate’s Moheshkhali Floating LNG (MLNG) terminal located offshore Bangladesh in the Bay of Bengal. Using Excelerate’s floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) Excellence and a conventional LNG carrier, 144 191 m3 of LNG were transferred using the double-banked LNG transfer system. To date, Excelerate has successfully transferred over 236 405 000 m3 of LNG using its STS protocol.
“Having achieved this milestone safely is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team and vessel crews worldwide,” stated Chief Operating Officer Cal Bancroft. “Operating in challenging locations like the Bay of Bengal is why customers can count on our teams to deliver much-needed energy.”
Since 2018, Excelerate has provided clean, reliable energy to Bangladesh through its two FSRUs located offshore in the Bay of Bengal. Both projects have represented a 20% uplift in gas supply to the country, allowing for a more resilient gas and power grid for the Chattogram region, which is home to residents, fertilizer factories, and several industries that were previously underserved. MLNG was the country’s first LNG import facility.
