Bahrain LNG, which is developing the terminal, is jointly owned by the National Oil and Gas Authority (NOGA) of Bahrain, Teekay LNG Partners, Samsung Construction and Trading and the Gulf Investment Corp.
The chief executive of Bahrain’s NOGA then said in March the terminal would start commercial operations in May.
The terminal will house a floating storage unit (FSU), an offshore LNG receiving jetty and breakwater, a regasification platform, subsea gas pipelines from the platform to shore, an onshore gas receiving facility, and an onshore nitrogen production facility, according to the Bahrain LNG website.
The FSU, the Bahrain Spirit, arrived in the Persian Gulf in January and has been docked near Fujairah since then.
Bahrain LNG was not immediately available for comment. (Reporting by Ekaterina Kravtsova; editing by Nina Chestney)
