Bahrain's Offshore LNG Import Terminal Expected to Start By This Year End
= Being delayed from recently planned Q3 2019; FSU under commissioning =
The start-up of an offshore LNG import terminal in Bahrain has been extended to the end of this year, according to the latest quarterly report released by the project participant Teekay LNG on 14th. The recently planned start-up was the third quarter this year but was delayed.

Teekay LNG owns a 30% stake in Bahrain LNG which is advancing the project, and supplies a Gloating Storage Unit (FSU) "Bahrain Spirit" under a 20-year charter deal. The FSU is already at the offshore terminal and started commissioning this October.

"Bahrain Spirit" is an FSU with a 173,000-cubic-meter tank, constructed by South Korea's Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME). In addition to the FSU, the offshore terminal consists of a berth with a regasification capacity of 0.8 Bcf/d and a subsea pipeline connecting the terminal with the land.

Once completion, the terminal will be Bahrain's first LNG import terminal. Other than Teekay LNG, Bahrain LNG is owned by Nogaholding (30%), Samsung C&T (16%), and Gulf Investment (24%). They had initially planned to start the terminal in the third quarter of 2018.
