Middle East & Africa: Trade
West African LNG exports are set to rise further as Cameroon installs an FLNG vessel at Kribi.
The FLNG Hilli Episeyo arrived at Kribi in November and is expected to export first LNG cargo by the end of Q1 2018. The vessel has four trains – but only the first two are contracted, and they have a combined capacity of 1.2 mtpa. Capacity will double if the other two trains are also contracted. Cameroon will be the fourth LNG exporter in West Africa – after Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea and Angola – but the first to have an FLNG vessel.
