FLNG to push gas industry growth
LNG technologies, such as floating LNG (FLNG) innovations, driven by its shorter construction lead times and lower capital investment costs, are increasingly becoming a viable option for increased gas deployments.
FLNG helps mitigate siting constraints that shore-based infrastructure may face, Black & Veatch’s newly appointed executive vice president and managing director, asia & floating offshore solutions – oil & gas Jim Schnieders, said.
At the same time, the continued need for a balanced power generation portfolio, as well as the need to address energy security and environmental concerns, are driving rapid growth in the gas industry.
To support this, Black & Veatch said it is enhancing its ability to provide clients with FLNG expertise that offers cost and operational efficiencies.
“As countries seek alternatives to baseload feedstock for power generation and, in some instances the need to address heavily subsidized fuel oil-based generation, gas-fired generation offers a reliable alternative that helps create a more balanced energy portfolio. Floating liquified natural gas (FLNG) technologies provide LNG exporters and importers flexible, mobile liquefaction and regasification infrastructure,” says Schnieders.
Schnieders, who has been with Black & Veatch for 29, overseeing Power EPC Asia business since 2015 and has been responsible or EPC project pursuit and execution for clients in Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
The company’s role encompasses front end engineering design – and detailed design – through to full engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) solutions. These projects span both tanker and barge-based LNG export and import infrastructure operating around the world.
The world’s first barge-based floating liquefaction unit successfully completed performance testing in Nantong, China and will be based in Argentina. It was the first time in history, LNG had been produced onboard a floating facility.
In addition, another FLNG vessel went into commercial operation in Cameroon, and a third has begun development, each relying on Black & Veatch’s Prico technology and engineering and procurement capabilities.
