N-KOM repairs Pakistan FSRU

Qatar-based shipyard N-KOM said it has recently completed repair works on the 150,900-cbm FSRU Exquisite, owned by Qatari LNG shipping giant Nakilat and US floating player Excelerate Energy.

The works included drydocking, repairs, BWTS retrofit, various equipment and systems overhaul, and modification and testing for the FSRU, N-KOM said on Wednesday.

In addition, this marks the second FSRU project for N-KOM, as it had completed works on Exquisite’s sister vessel FSRU Excelerate back in 2019.

N-KOM, the joint venture of Nakilat and Singapore’s Keppel Offshore & Marine, did not provide any additional information.

According to its AIS data, Exquisite visited N-KOM in September and returned back to Port Qasim to serve Pakistan’s first LNG import terminal during the same month.

The FSRU started serving Engro Elengy Terminal, a joint venture of Engro and Vopak, back in 2015.

Excelerate recently said that the unit had completed its 400th ship-to-ship transfer in Port Qasim.

The FSRU Exquisite currently fulfills as much as 15 percent of Pakistan’s domestic daily natural gas requirements, according to Excelerate. It has a peak regasification rate of 690 million cubic feet per day.

Most of the cargoes that arrive at the FSRU come from Qatar’s Ras Laffan LNG complex.

Nakilat took over the management of this vessel last year, the first-ever FSRU to join its in-house shipping management.
