New Fortress Energy announced that it has executed a definitive agreement to charter the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) Energos Winter from Petrobras starting in December 2023.
s informed, the FSRU Energos Winter will be immediately deployed to Terminal Gas Sul (TGS), NFE’s newest LNG import terminal in Santa Catarina, Brazil which will start commercial operations ahead of schedule in January 2024.
The TGS terminal is a unique, high-growth opportunity for NFE, as connection to the pipeline system in south Brazil offers a diverse and near-term set of opportunities across power and gas supply.
…said Andrew Dete, Managing Director of New Fortress Energy.
The Energos Winter will be sub-chartered by NFE through the remaining term of the Petrobras charter with Energos infrastructure and then direct-chartered by NFE on a long-term basis with Energos.
This will enable NFE to commence commercial operations at TGS in January 2024 and continue uninterrupted service on a long-term basis. Energos Infrastructure, the owner of the Energos Winter, is owned 80% by funds managed by Apollo and 20% by NFE.
