Excelerate Carries Out 1000th Ship-to-Ship LNG Transfer

US-based Excelerate Energy L.P. completed its 1000th commercial ship-to-ship (STS) transfer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on August 31, 2016, in Escobar, Argentina at GNL Escobar LNG import terminal.

Using Excelerate Energy’s floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) Expedient and a conventional LNG carrier, 83,767 cubic meters of LNG were transferred via the double-banked LNG transfer system.

To date, Excelerate has transferred over 108 million cubic meters of LNG using its STS protocol.

An STS transfer of LNG operation consists of an LNG carrier mooring alongside an FSRU and transferring its cargo to the FSRU via flexible cryogenic hoses. The FSRU can provide uninterrupted regasification services throughout the entire STS LNG transfer process, providing continuous delivery of natural gas to the local market.
