At the beginning of August 2016, the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) Excelerate moored at Ruwais in Abu Dhabi. The 138,000m3 FSRU (built 2006) is owned by Excelerate Energy and chartered by Gasco – a joint venture between Adnoc, Shell, Total and Partex. The vessel loaded the commissioning cargo at Das Island in the second half of July before reaching Ruwais. The FSRU will be able to supply an extra 14 million cubic metres of gas per day to the grid. This is the first facility that allows Abu Dhabi to import LNG [2]
