Posted on

Excelerate Energy® L.P. completed its 200th commercial Ship-to-Ship (STS) transfer of LNG on November 27, 2011 in Escobar, Argentina at the GNL Escobar LNG import facility. Using Excelerate Energy’s regasification vessel, Exemplar and the conventional LNG carrier Excel, 58,230 cubic meters of LNG were transferred using the double-banked LNG transfer system. While having just reached the 100th STS transfer milestone in March of last year, increased demand for LNG coupled with a need for rapid and reliable delivery to market, accelerated the realization of this latest milestone.
  Excelerate Energy developed and implemented the industry’s first STS transfer system for LNG deliveries to regasification vessels in 2005 in order to optimize the capabilities of regasification vessels and to provide a viable solution for providing a continuous supply to market.
