Turkey’s first floating natural gas storage and regasification unit (FSRU) has arrived at its destination in Izmir’s Aliaga district. It is planned that it will supply 5.3 billion cubic meters of gas per year, thus contributing to the increase of the country’s daily capacity to 224 million cubic meters.
The company behind this liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification project, Kolin Group said that GDF Suez Neptune floating terminal has started performing test studies and will be fully operational within a month. It will contribute 20 million cubic meters of natural gas per day to Turkey’s gas supply. The FSRU will be officially commissioned on 23 December at a ceremony that will be attended by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.
