Bahrain LNG: On Target

Bahrain’s virgin LNG import project is making key progress towards hitting its 1Q 2019 start-up target.

Bermuda-registered Teekay LNG, the key foreign partner in the JV building a 5.9mn t/y (800mn cfd) LNG import terminal in Bahrain, says that it will take delivery of the ‘Bahrain Spirit’ floating LNG storage unit (FSU) from Korea’s Daewoo later this month.
