    Höegh Esperanza starts commissioning for FSRU operations in Tianjin, China

    Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd. announces that Höegh Esperanza has arrived at the Tianjin LNG terminal in China and has started commissioning for FSRU operations, the company said in its press release. Höegh Esperanza is currently serving a three-plus-one year FSRU/LNGC time charter with CNOOC Gas & Power Trading and Marketing Ltd. (“CNOOC”). Under the contract, Höegh Esperanza will be utilised in FSRU mode for a minimum period each year, with the balance of the year in LNG carrier mode and/or FSRU mode. The rate structure corresponds to the mode of use, with an anticipated annualised EBITDA contribution when in FSRU mode of approximately USD 33 million.

This high-specification FSRU has both open and closed loop regasification capability, an import capacity of around 6 million tonnes of LNG per year and storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters of LNG. It is equipped with a GTT Mark III membrane containment system and dual-fuel diesel-electric propulsion, providing it with full LNGC trading capabilities.
