Floating storage and regasification units (“FSRUs”) play a significant role in the LNG industry.  The first FSRU commenced operations in 2005 and, as of February 2020, there were 24 FSRUs in operation at LNG import projects worldwide.[1]  Whilst this only represents roughly one sixth of the existing LNG import terminals, in recent years there has been a growing trend towards the increased use of FSRUs for LNG import projects, especially in new LNG importing countries.[2]
