Liquefied natural gas (LNG) injection into the country’s first floating regasification unit (FSRU) Ertugrul Gazi has been successfully completed off the coast of Hatay province in southern Turkey.
Gas was pumped into the Ertugrul Gazi PSGU from the LNG tanker Berge Arzew under the flag of the Bahamas, which arrived from Algeria and docked near the BOTAŞ PSGU terminal in the Dortyol region on June 29.
LNG tanker Berge Arzew pumped 132 thousand cubic meters of LNG into the Ertugrul Gazi unit, from which 85 million cubic meters of gas will be obtained.
In accordance with demand and needs, Erturul Gazi will be able to store this gas in its own tank, as well as transfer it to the gas pipeline system.
LNG tanker Berge Arzew is expected to leave the port on Friday at 22:00.
The Ertugrul Gazi vessel ranks first in the world due to its gasification capacity of 28 million cubic meters per day. The vessel is 46 meters wide, 295 meters long, 63 meters high, and the ship’s LNG storage capacity is 170 thousand cubic meters.
The floating installation was built in South Korea in 2020.
The commissioning ceremony for Ertugrul Gazi with the participation of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan took place on June 25.
