Bechtel chosen to design America’s first FLNG

Bechtel has been selected by Delfin LNG, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fairwood Peninsula Energy Corporation, to perform front-end engineering and design for the first US-based floating liquified natural gas vessel (FLNG) to go into service at Port Delfin.

Port Delfin is a proposed deepwater port and floating LNG facility that will be located approximately 50 miles off the coastline of Cameron Parish, Louisiana. Upon the final investment decision, Bechtel is expected to design, build and commission the FLNG. Port Delfin will receive natural gas from the Delfin Offshore Pipeline.
