Costain is to provide cryogenic expertise on FEED study for FLEX LNG’s fixed floating LNG production project for operations in Papua New Guinea.
The FEED contract was awarded to the KANFA Aragon/WorleyParsons joint venture FirstLNG by Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd on 27 May 2011.
Costain has been working in partnership with KANFA Aragon for a number of years, delivering concept, pre-FEED and FEED studies for LNG floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) projects.
The field specific FEED is scheduled to take six months, progressing to a Final Investment Decision. The study will develop the generic FEED work previously carried out by KANFA Aragon and Costain for the development of an LNG processing and liquefaction topside with a capacity of up to 2 million tpa of LNG.
“The ability to produce LNG at the point of extraction will mean many remote offshore gas fields will become economically viable for the first time,” said Charles Sweeney, Managing Director of Costain’s Energy & Process division. “With the global demand for LNG ever-increasing, this technology is set to revolutionise the energy industry.”
