Detailed Narrative Description of Project & Services Provided

SOFREGAZ signed a contract in March 2011 with EDF PEI for a feasibility study referring to LNG supply through an offshore installation.

Such installation aimed principally to supply gas to 2 gas power plants in Corsica, one in Ajaccio and one in Bastia.

SOFREGAZ had to define, among others:

  • Required ships to ensure LNG supply,
  • Offshore FSRU (Floating Storage Regasification Unit) terminals implantations and characteristics,
  • Characteristics of the pipeline liaising FSRU/onshore network,
  • Investment cost and associated schedule.

An additional note, presenting additional possible alternatives to supply LNG to Corsica, has also been provided to EDF PEI.
