Engie and the Turkish construction companies Kolin and Kalyon have inaugurated the Etki (Aliaga) floating LNG terminal which is the country’s first FSRU.
Engie said that it has been selected by project developers Kolin and Kalyon to deliver this fast-track FSRU based solution as it committed the Neptune, one of the two FSRU of its fleet, to the project.
The overall floating terminal’s infrastructure developed by Kolin and Kalyon includes a jetty and an onshore gas pipeline to connect the terminal to the national gas transport grid, operated by BOTAS.
The FSRU Neptune, previously known as GDF Suez Neptune, has arrived near Aliaga on the Agean Sea where it will be used as Turkey’s third LNG import terminal.
The new floating LNG import project will be known as the Etki LNG terminal, according to documents posted by Etki Liman Isletmeleri Dogalgaz Ithalat ve Ticaret, the terminal’s owner and the operator.
The LNG terminal is located in the Aliaga industrial area, adjacent to Cakmaklı village, in the south-western part of Candarlı Bay, Izmir, Turkey.
