Cyprus Liquefied Natural Gas Import Terminal Project

Location Vasilikos, Cyprus

Client Natural Gas Public Company (DEFA)

Services Project Management

Project Value €252 million

Hill is serving as the owner’s engineer for this project to deliver natural gas to Cyprus. The project will be constructed at Vasilikos Bay on the southern coast, and represents the beginning of a new energy era for Cyprus, bringing to fruition years of the nation’s efforts to end energy isolation, ensure diversification of energy sources, strengthen the security of supply, reduce the cost of energy, and protect the environment.

The project’s main components are a former LNG carrier with a storage capacity of 136,000 CM that will be converted into a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), a jetty and a jetty-borne gas pipeline, an onshore gas pipeline, and associated infrastructure. After the LNG carrier is converted to an FSRU, the unit will be equipped with a state-of-the-art regasification modular system. The completed terminal will be capable of receiving LNG from carriers ranging in size from 120,000 to 217,000 CM.

Hill will oversee the implementation of the project by carrying out design reviews and supervising the works to convert the former LNG carrier, which will take place in China and at the Vasilikos site in Cyprus.
