Hong Kong has started trials of the world’s largest floating storage and regasification unit by capacity.

The maiden commissioning cargo, which arrived in Hong Kong on Sunday, was purchased from PetroChina via a tender process, according to sources.

The trials involve the Bauhinia Spirit FSRU, jetty, storage tanks and pipelines ahead of contractor Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC) delivering the facility to the project owner Hong Kong LNG Terminal — a joint venture between Hong Kong power utilities HK Electric and Castle Peak Power — in the second week of June.
