First Gen seeks LNG cargo for Batangas FSRU

Power producer First Gen is seeking one spot LNG cargo for its FSRU-based import terminal in Batangas, Philippines.

The firm controlled by the Lopez family said in a statement it seeks to procure a single cargo of LNG via its unit First Gen Singapore on a DES basis, to be utilized by FGEN’s existing gas-fired power plants in its complex in Batangas.

According to First Gen, the selected bidder will deiver the 154,500 cbm LNG cargo to the 162,000-cbm FSRU BW Batangas from January 22 to February 2, 2023.

First Gen expects to award the tender on December 20.

This is the third LNG cargo for the FSRU-based facility.

LNG giant Shell suppled the first LNG cargo for commissioning purposes to the LNG terminal in August.

Shell delivered the LNG cargo from Australia onboard the 2021-built 174,000-cbm, LNGShips Manhattan.

First Gen recently selected energy trader Trafigura to supply the second LNG cargo.

As per the FSRU, First Gen awarded in 2021 the five-year FSRU contract to BW LNG, as it looks to replace declining volumes from the Malampaya gas field.

BW Batangas arrived in the Philippines in June to start serving First Gen’s LNG import terminal developed by its unit FGEN LNG.

Prior to arriving in Batangas, the FSRU underwent modifications at the MMHE Shipyard in Johor, Malaysia.

This is the second LNG import facility in the Philippines as Singapore’s LNG firm AG&P kicked off commissioning activities in April at the country’s first import terminal following the arrival of the 137,500-cbm FSU Ish at the terminal’s jetty in Batangas Bay.
