Golar FSRU Terminal was a proposed floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) off the coast of Lagos, Nigeria.
- FSRU Owner: Golar
- FSRU Charterer: Lagos State Government
- Location: off the coast of Lagos, Nigeria
- Coordinates: 6.450737, 3.373252 (approximate)
- Type: Import
- Capacity: 750 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (MMscf/d) (5.7 million tons per year)
- Status: Shelved
- Start Year:
Note: mtpa = million tonnes per year; bcfd = billion cubic feet per day
In November 2018, the Lagos State Government announced that it was in discussions with Golar to provide an FSRU, either the Golar Tundra or the Golar Spirit vessel, to deliver off-grid energy security for the region. The US$3bn gas-to-power project, known as the Embedded Power Supply Programme, was expected to provide 3,000MW of electricity. The FSRU would have the capacity to regasify 750 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (MMscf/d), enough to power 3,000MW.
There have been no developments since 2018 and the project is presumed to be shelved.
