What is Delfin LNG?
Delfin LNG is proposing the first offshore floating natural gas liquefaction project in the United States. The project is currently in the application process with the United States Maritime Administration (MARAD) and US Coast Guard (USCG). We are targeting an in-service date in 2020.
Who is Delfin LNG?
Delfin is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fairwood Peninsula Energy Corporation (FPE) and is currently developing Port Delfin, a floating liquefaction and export facility to be located in the Gulf of Mexico. As planned, Port Delfin consists of onshore gas compression facilities and a deepwater port that uses existing pipeline infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico to transport natural gas offshore to four moored floating liquefaction vessels. Delfin has submitted an application to MARAD and the USCG for authorization to construct, own and operate an LNG export deepwater port. Delfin has signed a Joint Development Agreement with Enbridge, Inc. (TSX/NYSE: ENB) in relation to the Project.
What is an FLNGV?
An FLNGV, or “Floating Liquefied Natural Gas Vessel”, is a vessel that has onboard facilities capable of liquefying and storing natural gas while floating on a body of water.
Why are you building an FLNGV instead of an onshore facility?
Floating liquefaction is environmentally friendly, cost competitive, economical with limited scale, moveable in the event of a hurricane, and has a shorter and more efficient schedule relative to an onshore plant.
What is the economic impact of Delfin?
Delfin LNG will create jobs during both its construction and operation, and should positively impact U.S. balance of trade.
What if there is a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico?
Our FLNGVs will detach from their moorings and seek refuge in the safest possible location.
When will Delfin go into service?
Delfin LNG expects to be operational in 2020.
