Exmar NV has secured an order for a second floating LNG (FLNG) Liquefaction Unit, which will be constructed at Wison Offshore & Marine’s shipyard in Nantong, China. The FLNG unit will have a liquefaction capacity of 0.6 million tpy and 20 000 m3 of LNG storage
Wison will be responsible for the turnkey engineering, procurement, construction, transportation, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of the FLNG unit.
This second FLNG order will enable Exmar to offer a reliable and cost-efficient LNG production facility to its customers compared to a land-based solution. The FLNG is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
Nicolas Saverys, CEO of Exmar, said: "It is clear that lower oil and gas prices will continue to boost demand for cost-efficient and fast-track FLNG solutions over land-based liquefaction terminals. We continue to see strong growth in the FLNG market. Thanks to our first-mover advantage we are actively working on seven FLNG projects around the world. With this second FLNG contract we take another key step towards further strengthening our unique position in the FLNG market."
Wison's CEO, Matt Cui, added: "It is again an honour to receive this order from our strategic partner Exmar, with whom we have already developed the Caribbean FLNG that is currently under construction. The Caribbean FLNG will come online off the Colombian coast in the second half of 2015."
