Technica provided Kuwait & UK based Electrical & Instrumentation design and management services for the Kuwait Gasport facility from the initial stages of the project in 2007. The Mina Al-Ahmadi GasPort (MAAGP) is Kuwait’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal.
Using Excelerate Energy’s GasPort technology, an Energy Bridge Regasification Vessel (EBRV™) is stationed at the existing Mina Al-Ahmadi South Jetty facility and delivers regasified LNG at a baseload rate of up to 500 million cubic feet per day (mmcf/d). In addition, the MAAGP incorporates an innovative shuttle tanker berth that provides for ship-to-ship LNG transfer and boil off gas management capabilities between a conventional LNG carrier and the EBRV™.
This allows Excelerate Energy to keep the EBRV™ on station while receiving cargo deliveries of LNG from conventional carrier’s dockside, resulting in a flexible terminal that can provide seasonal baseload service to Kuwait.
Construction of the facility began in January of 2008 from which point Technica provided a constant site presence of highly experienced and skilled Engineers and Supervisors based at the Mina Al Ahmadi Oil Refinery.
