EXMAR announced that its Floating LNG Liquefaction Unit (FLNG), to be renamed Tango FLNG, has left China to the destination of its liquefaction operations: Bahia Blanca, Argentina. Tango FLNG is now on the move, just one month after contract signing, and the voyage to Argentina is expected to take approximately 45 days.
Upon its arrival, Tango FLNG will be put in operation for EXMAR’s customer YPF S.A. and is expected to start up LNG production in the second quarter of 2019. Tango FLNG is designed for a
liquefaction capacity of about 0.5 million tons of LNG per year and is to play a central role in YPF’s efforts to export the Vaca Muerta gas reserves to the international markets.
