Report summary

Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRUs) have been in operation for little more than ten years, but have moved quickly from being a specialist niche to being a main-stream solution for potential new regasification terminals. FSRUs have helped open up new markets to LNG and lower the barriers to entry of joining the LNG club. The FSRU fleet has grown to 23 vessels with a further seven on order, as of January 2016. Imports through FSRU terminals are provisionally estimated to have grown by 44% in 2015 – to 22.8 million tonnes. New FSRU terminals in Pakistan, Egypt and Jordan accounted for much of the growth. Three companies - Excelerate Energy, Golar LNG and Hoegh LNG - dominate the sector but other companies are keen to expand their presence in the sector. BW saw its first FSRU start operations in Egypt in late 2015. Included with the report is an Excel download with details of the FSRU fleet, current and future projects, imports by terminal and FSRU availability by company.
