Capacity

The FSRU is sized for 170,000 cubic metres  whilst a larger vessel (up to 210,000 cubic meters) can be considered during final commercial discussions.  The Port Meridian pipeline and the connected land facilities are capable of a maximum daily throughput rate of 1250 mmscfd. However, the base case design is for a maximum daily throughput rate of 750 mmscfd.

The throughput rate will mainly be controlled by the FSRU vessel by adjusting the delivery pressure into the pipeline. Further control may be applied by the land based facilities which are equipped with flow control valves and heating equipment.

Port Meridian will be operational all year round.

The project has developed operating envelopes which forms the basis for selecting the FSRU size and correct pipeline diameter once the firm capacity has been set and agreed with customers.
