Excelerate commissioning LNG port off Boston

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Feb. 21 -- Excelerate Energy LLC has begun commissioning its Northeast Gateway deepwater port in Massachusetts Bay.

The work, which includes testing of port equipment and systems, began after the Excelerate regasification vessel arrived on site.

The port employs Excelerate's Energy Bridge system for revaporizing LNG offshore and injecting it into a marine pipeline through a submerged turret loading buoy. The company is using the system at its Gulf Gateway deepwater port off Louisiana.

Northeast Gate, 18 miles east of Boston, will be able to handle peak deliveries of 800 MMcfd of gas through two turret buoys and under normal operations will deliver about 500 MMcfd (OGJ, June 4, 2007, Newsletter).
