CLP Power’s LNG Project


Mayer Brown advised CLP Power Hong Kong Limited in connection with the Hong Kong Offshore Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal project, which involves the use of floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) technology for the first time in Hong Kong.

The FSRU will receive, store, and regasify LNG into two separate subsea gas pipelines to supply natural gas to Castle Peak Power Company Limited and Hongkong Electric Co., Ltd., generating power for Hong Kong residents.

The Hong Kong Offshore Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal project is part of the Hong Kong government’s strategy to have 50 percent of Hong Kong’s electricity generated from natural gas beginning in 2020.

The Mayer Brown team was led by LNG practice leader (Asia) Nick Kouvaritakis (Picture) in Singapore and included partner Nathan Dodd and senior associate Matthew Chow (both Singapore), partners – Thomas Moore (Houston), Menachem Hasofer and Bill Amos (both Hong Kong).
