Together with Summit LNG, PSA Marine Bangladesh targets to commence operations in early 2019.

“Bangladesh requires 15 million tons of LNG and Summit will provide infrastructure for that. For our first project of LNG, we are pleased to bring on board PSA Marine … to support our venture to develop region’s fast growing LNG market,” Muhammed Aziz Khan, Chairman of SPI, said.

In 2017, Summit LNG has received a concession from Petrobangla, Bangladesh’s state-owned company, to develop a floating LNG terminal facility comprising of a storage and regasification unit connected to shore by a six-kilometer subsea pipeline. This project is part of SPI’s USD 1 billion investment program to deliver 1,000 MW of power and gas in Bangladesh.
