Smit Lamnalco has secured a 20-year contract with the National Oil and Gas Authority of Bahrain (NOGA) to supply marine services to the Bahrain LNG terminal.
Under the deal, the Rotterdam-based Smit Lamnalco will deploy four LNG terminal-compliant 70-tonne bollard pull tugs to provide escort, berthing and un-berthing of LNG carriers to the Bahrain LNG FSU import terminal.
It will use a floating storage unit (FSU) and a jetty-mounted regasification facility located offshore five kilometres east of the onshore receiving facility at the Khalifa Bin Salman port.
The terminal is jointly owned by Nogaholding and a consortium consisting of Teekay LNG Partners, Gulf Investment Corporation (GIC) and Samsung C&T (Samsung).
The tugs will be replaced in year five with new purpose-built tugs.
