The Experience, constructed to provide long-term service for Brazil’s Petrobras, is the largest and most capable FSRU in the world with a storage capacity of 173,400 cubic meters and sendout capability of 1 billion cubic feet per day.
The vessel is the ninth in Excelerate Energy’s fleet of FSRUs, making the company the industry’s largest operator of regasification vessels. Excelerate Energy delivered the Experience to Brazil in May 2014.
The Experience completed successful gas trials in early March of 2014 and was delivered to Petrobras in mid-May for service at its Guanabara Bay facility. The vessel is capable of operating as both an FSRU and a fully tradable LNG carrier.
Excelerate has been providing bridging services to Petrobras since the end of 2012 by supplying the company with one of its existing FSRUs while the Experience was being constructed.
