Ambitions within West Africa to exploit pioneering floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) technology to boost gas exports has entered a crucial phase, following the start-up of the Kribi project in Cameroon.

Golar LNG confirmed in mid-March that its Hilli Episeyo FLNG facility had begun producing from the Kribi development, located in relatively calm waters off southern Cameroon and operated by French firm Perenco.

Testing was expected to be completed during April, paving the way for production to ramp up towards the facility’s 1.2m-tonnes-a-year capacity—though a timetable for exports to start up hasn’t been released.
