Delfin LNG is developing the first floating liquefied natural gas vessels (FLNGVs) in North America. Having already completed the permitting process with the Department of Energy (DOE), Maritime Administration (MARAD), and the United States Coast Guard (USCG), Delfin LNG is a highly-advanced, shovel ready project that expects to be operational by 2021/2022.
The Delfin LNG project will consist of four primary components (see rendering below):
Delfin LNG is convinced that floating liquefaction will be the future of LNG production. 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 construction schedule relative to an onshore project. Further, in the event that global energy markets change dramatically in the coming decades, a floating liquefaction plant provides greater flexibility for decommissioning and redeployment. The offshore location of the project's FLNGVs, nearly 50 miles off the coast of Louisiana, will significantly reduce coastal LNG carrier traffic while minimizing near-shore environmental impacts.
