Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Petrobras has signed a 15-year time charter with Excelerate Energy for a floating storage and regassification unit. To be designated VT3, the FSRU will be able to store 173,400 cu m (almost 6.2 MMcf), thereby making it the largest FSRU to date.

Excelerate has selected DSME to construct the vessel that also will be usable as an LNG carrier. The vessel is expected to go into service in May 2014. Starting July 2013 and lasting until arrival of the VT3, the Guanabara Bay Terminal will use Excelerate Energy’s Exquisite FSRU.
