Höegh Giant FSRU Terminal is a proposed floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) in Jaigarh Port in Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra, India.
The FSRU is proposed for Jaigarh Port in Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra, India. The precise location within the port is an estimate only.
- FSRU Charterer: H-Energy
- FSRU Owner: Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd.
- Location: Jaigarh Port in Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra, India
- Coordinates: (approximate)
- Type: Import
- Capacity: 6 mtpa
- Status: Proposed
- Start Year: 2021
Note: mtpa = million tonnes per year; bcfd = billion cubic feet per day
In December 2020, H-Energy (through its wholly owned subsidiary Western Concessions Private Limited), entered into a binding contract with Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd. The contract is a 10-year agreement for the deployment of Höegh's existing floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), named Höegh Giant, at H-Energy's existing LNG regasification terminal project in Jaigarh Port in Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra, India. The FSRU will be delivered to H-Energy’s Jaigarh project in March 2021.
The Höegh Giant was built in 2017. It has a storage capacity of 170,000 m3 and a maximum regasification capacity of 750 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d - approximately 6.0 million tonnes per year). The FSRU will deliver regasified LNG to the 56 km Jaigarh-Dabhol Gas Pipeline, connecting to the National Gas grid. It will also deliver LNG onshore for truck loading facilities. The FSRU is also capable of providing bunkering services.
The FSRU will act as a supplement to the Jaigarh LNG Terminal. Upon the delivery of the FSRU, H-Energy will commission its Jaigarh terminal project in March 2021. This LNG terminal will become India’s first FSRU based LNG regasification terminal.
