WHY FLNG

With dwindling production and maturing fields, we have been exploring
ways to develop new resources economically.

This led us to PFLNG — a versatile floating LNG facility comprising several square kilometers of production, processing and offloading facilities fit-to-purpose onto a compact 300-metre long structure.

Limiting the need for extensive pipeliners or heavy infrastructures, the LNG can be extracted and
monetised more efficiently.

It is a mega-structure that will revolutionise the landscape of LNG production.

WHY GAS

As one of the cleanest and safest of all energy sources, natural gas continues to be in high demand and remains a vital component of the world’s energy supply.

An estimated 60% of the world’s natural gas is trapped in unviable locations where conventional rigs and pipelines would not make sense. This is where a floating LNG facility plays a significant role.

To solve an unconventional problem, our engineers created an unconventional solution.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Resource

    Extraction of natural gas from the wellhead to the floater

  • Pre-treatment

    The extracted natural gas will be processed onboard the floater prior to liquefaction

  • Liquefaction

    Liquefies the natural gas to approximately minus 150 degrees Celsius, shrinking the gas volume by 600 times

  • Storage

    The Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is stored in a dual row membrane type cargo containment system (CCS) before offloading to LNG carriers

  • Offloading

    The LNG is offloaded to LNG carriers for market delivery

KEY FACTS

UNIQUE CHALLENGES:
SAFETY, MOTION & SPACE

Safety

Extremely detailed safety studies were conducted and numerous safety features installed to address all potential risks effectively.

Motion

Numerous real-time simulation and motion studies were conducted to understand the waves, winds and sea currents which were incorporated into its design.

Space

Thorough steps were taken to ensure that safety, comfort and accessibility were not compromised due to its compact design.
