Hoegh LNG’s Lampung FSRU serving Pertamina’s Perusahaan Gas Negara off the southeast coast of Sumatra in Indonesia has completed its 49th ship-to-ship operation since it started operations in 2014.
PGN LNG, a unit of PGN that operates the floating LNG import facility offshore Lampung, said in a social media post that the 49th LNG transfer took place on October 3-4.
The 2007-built 145,000-cbm, Golden Isaia, previously known as Methane Shirley Elisabeth, delivered the shipment from BP’s Tangguh LNG export project in Indonesia’s Papua Barat province.
Golden Isaia unloaded a partial cargo of 30,000 cbm of LNG to the FSRU, according to the firm.
PGN LNG said the cargo belongs to Indonesia’s state power company PLN.
The regasified LNG from the FSRU-based facility goes for power generation and industrial users in West Java.
Connected to a tower yoke mooring system, the 170,000-cbm FSRU delivers gas via a 21 km long offshore pipeline.
The FSRU received in total six LNG cargoes this year.
The unit serves a 20-year charter deal PGN has with Hoegh. Hoegh now owns the unit after it completed the acquisition of Hoegh LNG Partners.
Hoegh and PGN are still in a dispute regarding the charter of the FSRU revealed in 2021.
