Delfin Operating LLC
Here’s a roundup of the latest E&P headlines, including an FLNG design and engineering contract and new seismic offerings.
Delfin Midstream Inc. has entered into a design and engineering contract with Wison Offshore & Marine to accelerate the development of floating LNG vessel slots at the Delfin LNG project.
In September 2017, FERC authorized Delfin to put its project into service by September 2019. Since then, FERC has granted several one-year extensions to complete the project.
Centrica will purchase Delfin Midstream's LNG as it looks to diversify its energy supplies in the wake of a drop in Russian gas flows to Europe.
Delfin is one of a dozen or so North American LNG export projects that delayed decisions to start construction in 2020 and 2021 in part because coronavirus demand destruction.
Delfin expects to make an FID this year.
A gap is emerging in the U.S. LNG industry as big players such as Exxon Mobil and Cheniere Energy race ahead to build export terminals without new long-term contracts.
