Combined with AG&P subsidiary Gas Entec, AG&P Engineering will develop LNG infrastructure assets to serve the needs of power, bunkering, mining, transportation and industrial users in emerging economies that are currently off-grid and not served by existing LNG networks.
Alfred Moujaes has been appointed Head of AG&P Engineering, with experience in refining and power generation industries, including onshore and floating LNG (FLNG) production facilities, in addition to LNG import and export terminals. Nancy Ballout has been appointed Vice President Process Operations; David Frankling as Vice President Engineering; Julio Rios as Vice President Technology; Charles Rice as Principal Piping Engineering; Ali Aga as Project Manager for Engineering Procurement and Construction; and Linna Wang as Principle Process Engineer. A number of other senior project managers and engineers have also been appointed who will be based in both India and the Philippines.
AG&P Engineering will focus on LNG import terminals and their supply chains with the aim of providing gas or LNG to last-mile customers at a lower capital cost. The approach incorporates design, manufacturing, financing and development for both storage and regasification terminals, as well as trucks and vessels for LNG transportation and other infrastructure assets enabling delivery in the shortest time possible. The company claims that efficiencies are attained by utilising standardised modules to match investment with demand, with the terminal to become a gateway to customers located up to several hundred kilometers away.
Moujaes said: “Despite the competitive cost and high demand for LNG, projects have suffered from inertia because of a lack of the right infrastructure and the prohibitively high cost of developing it, creating a distribution gap for off-grid customers.
“AG&P Engineering is bridging this gap by providing fast-track, scalable engineering designs for any or all parts of the LNG supply chain. Costs are substantially reduced by having an in-house engineering team because project delays and overall cost increases are often attributed to bespoke third-party engineering. Our approach will make it easier and faster for last-mile customers to access LNG.”
