Changing the Landscape of LNG Production

Successful completion of the Petronas Floating LNG facility (PFLNG) Satu is a milestone for the oil and gas industry and for the Malaysian energy giant.   Designed by consortium leader TechnipFMC and fabricated at the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering yard in South Korea, PFLNG Satu achieved the first-ever production of LNG offshore in December 2016.   The 365-meter by 60-meter facility processes, produces and offloads LNG in situ, directly above natural gas reservoirs. FLNG allows the monetization of remote, marginal and stranded offshore gas fields that cannot be developed

New Standard for Offshore O&G Project by DNV GL Led JIP is Cost Saving

  Variations in owner, operator and regulatory requirements during engineering and construction phases at South Korean shipyards present a huge challenge for operators and drive up costs. DNV GL has kicked off a joint industry project (JIP) with Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Company (DSME) and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI)  that will establish a new international standard for offshore oil and gas projects. The results could potentially cut project costs by 15%, or approximately USD 500 million for a typical TLP (tension leg platform) project,
