Abstract for Technical Presentation on Near-shore Floating Liquefied Gas Storage and Processing to RINA in association with HIMT International Conference on LNG / LPG Ships, 5th December 2018 at RINA HIMT International Conference, Athens
There is a continuing growth in the application of natural gas for electrical power generation, industrial and domestic consumption. Hence, natural gas is increasingly being transhipped in its cooled transitory form of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), primarily via sea utilising large conventional LNG Carriers (LNGCs) but increasingly also smaller coastal LNGCs and LNG Bunker Vessels (LNGBVs) / Gas Supply Vessels (GSVs). As a consequence of these factors there is a significant and rising demand for various frame sizes of floating LNG reception and utilisation facilities, namely LNG Floating Storage and Offloading (LNG FSOs) reception / distribution vessels, Floating, Storage and Regasification Units (FSRUs), LNG Floating Power Barges (LNGFPBs) or ships, etc. To read the full presentation download the PDF below.
