As previously mentioned in ChemOrbis Plastic News, Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS) chairman Khaled Abdel Badie had reported that Norwegian Höegh’s gasification ship would arrive in Sokhna port by the end of March.

Now, according to media sources, EGAS is looking into preparing Adabiya Port in Suez to be able to receive the second gasification ship, after being unable to receive it in Sokhna Port for security reasons.

A committee sent by EGAS to study Adabiya Port noted that the port can be ready to be operational between three to six months to receive the second gasification ship, which will have 140,000 to 170,000 cubic feet volume for a single shipment and more than 42 liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipments on an annual basis.

Currently, Höegh’s trial operations are taking place while the commercial operations are to start at the end of April. The aim of the natural gas shipments, which are expected to exceed 500m cubic feet per day, is to meet part of the additional needs of power plants in Egypt.
