DORSET, UK -- Hamworthy is delivering regasification skids for Dubai Supply Authority (DUSUP) and Shell in Dubai.

The system will be installed on the vesselGolar Freeze in September. The 1977-built LNG carrier is being converted into an FSRU before being time chartered by DUSUP.

After its delivery to DUSUP in 2Q 2010, Golar Freeze will be permanently moored alongside a purpose-built jetty within the existing Jebel Ali port. The FSRU will be capable of storing 125,000 MMcm of LNG and delivering up to 14 MMcm/d of regasified LNG to DUSUP for further delivery into the Dubai gas network.

As DUSUP's adviser, Shell has worked closely with Golar LNG in the development of the project.
