Pilot LNG, the developer of the Galveston LNG Bunker Port (GLBP) project has awarded a FEED contract for a FLNG unit to Wison Offshore & Marine (Wison). The proposed FLNG unit involves a 0.5MMtpa barge which is similar to the Tango FLNG barge previously delivered by Wison.
In addition to the FEED award, Pilot said that Wison will also become a minority equity shareholder in Pilot LNG.
Pilot LNG is aiming to take a Final Investment Decision on the GLBP project in the first half of 2022 and operations beginning in the first half of 2025.
The proposed GLBP project would provide the ports of Houston, Galveston, and Texas City in the United States, with the infrastructure needed for the LNG bunker market. Pilot LNG was incorporated in 2019 and is led by CEO and founder Jonathan Cook who also co-founded Excelerate Energy in 2003.
