Liquefied natural gas (LNG) specialist New Fortress Energy has signed a definite agreement to charter the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) Energos Winter from Brazil-based Petrobras.
Under terms of the deal, the FSRU Energos Winter will be deployed at New Fortress Energy’s newest LNG import terminal in Santa Catarina, called Terminal Gas Sul (TGS).
Commercial operations at the site are hoped to begin ahead of schedule in January 2024.
Andrew Dete, Managing Director of New Fortress Energy, described the terminal as a high-growth opportunity for New Fortress Energy. He further added that connection to the pipeline system in south Brazil offers a diverse and near-term set of opportunities across power and gas supply.
The Energos Winter will be sub-chartered by NFE through the remaining term of the Petrobras charter, with Energos infrastructure and then direct chartered by NFE on a long-term basis with Energos.
Energos Infrastructure, the owner of Energos Winter, is owned 80% by funds managed by 20% by New Fortress Energy.
