Höegh LNG secures FSRU contract for Port Kembla

Norway’s Höegh LNG has secured an agreement with Australian Industrial Energy (AIE) for the supply of a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) for AIE’s proposed Port Kembla Gas Terminal.

The FSRU will be moored in Port Kembla’s inner harbour and will accept cargo from LNG carriers, with the gas then transferred onshore and piped into the gas transmission network.

AIE was formed in 2017 and comprises a consortium of international companies in the energy sector including Squadron Energy, Marubeni Corporation and JERA Co.

Höegh LNG currently operates three FSRUs with another two set to be delivered by South Korean yards this year and next year.
