The increases in NFE’s illustrative goals are due to portfolio optimization and higher operating margins in our core business lines, as well as – most significantly – the expected on-schedule deployment of our first floating liquefaction unit (“FLNG 1”) in the first half of 2023.
“We continue to execute our strategy of growing our LNG supply portfolio through the deployment of floating LNG infrastructure, enhancing energy security around the world while delivering superior returns to our shareholders,” said Wes Edens, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NFE. “Our integrated business is uniquely positioned both to respond to unprecedented near-term market opportunities and to convert our LNG volumes to longer term contracts to serve downstream energy customers.”
NFE is hosting its FLNG Investor Day today at the Kiewit Offshore Services (“KOS”) shipyard near Corpus Christi, Texas. Specializing in the fabrication and integration of offshore projects, the 555-acre KOS facility is home to NFE’s Fast LNG program and the ongoing conversion of marine infrastructure into floating liquefaction units.
“We are proud of the efficient and repeatable process we have developed – essentially an FLNG factory – that substantially reduces the cost and time to build incremental liquefaction capacity the global energy market so urgently needs,” continued Mr. Edens. “We are pleased to host investors and analysts today at this world-class facility in Texas, where they have an opportunity to see the significant progress we are making toward mechanical completion of our first FLNG unit in March 2023.”
