Bechtel receives FEED contract for Port Delfin FLNG vessel

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Delfin LNG has chosen Bechtel to provide front-end engineering and design for what would be the first US-based FLNG vessel to go on the proposed deepwater port 50 mi (80 km) offshore Cameron Parish, Louisiana.

Delfin, a subsidiary of Fairwood Peninsula Energy, also plans to have Bechtel design, build, and commission the vessel if and when the final investment decision is made.

Port Delfin will receive natural gas from the Delfin Offshore Pipeline in the US Gulf of Mexico.

Because of its design, the FLNG will be able to disconnect from the port facility and move to protected waters during a hurricane.
