More Eni gas for Egypt

Italian energy company Eni and UK major BP announced a new natural gas discovery in the “Great Nooros Area” of the Abu Madi West Development lease in the Nile Delta offshore Egypt and coupled with other finds in the block there is potential for LNG production. Eni said that there could be more than 4 trillion cubic feet of gas in place in the Great Nooros Area where there have been other discoveries since 2015.


Croatia LNG progress

A Chinese shipyard near Shanghai has completed the conversion works on a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) and the vessel is expected to leave for the Balkan nation of Croatia at the end of September to be deployed at an island site in the northern Adriatic Sea. The vessel was converted at a subsidiary yard of Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding from a conventional carrier, the “Golar Viking” with 140,205 cubic metres capacity, to an FSRU re-named “LNG Croatia”.


Fluxys LNG by rail

Fluxys of Belgium said its Zeebrugge LNG import terminal would be organising more container loads by train after a first shipment was sent to Italy by rail operator Lineas in a Prima LNG container. “Intermodal LNG transport is an attractive proposition as it has several advantages. It reduces emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants while being more cost efficient and reaching new destinations across Europe,” said Fluxys. “The port of Zeebrugge offers particularly good connections with the four major rail hubs in Europe,” it added.
