Small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) supplier Avenir LNG Limited has teamed up with Golar Power Limited to develop the small-scale LNG market in Brazil.
Avenir’s second 7,500 cbm LNG carrier will be used to deliver LNG to various ports across Brazil upon delivery.
The vessel will also offer ship-to-ship bunkering capability as part of Avenir’s global multi-nodal bunkering solution, adding to the Columbian, Mediterranean and Malaysian nodes which the company currently offers.
Avenir currently has a total of six vessels under construction comprising four 7,500 cbm and two 20,000 cbm LNG carriers. The first vessel in the series was launched earlier this year and is destined for the Malaysian market.
“This is another step in our strategy where we are working closely with a shareholder in leveraging its FSRU platform to develop small-scale LNG distribution and bunkering in key developing markets,” Andrew Pickering, Chief Executive Officer of Avenir LNG Limited, said.
“We are pleased to be able to leverage Golar LNG’s shareholding and direct access to tonnage through Avenir LNG,” Eduardo Antonello, Chief Executive Officer of Golar Power Limited, added.
