Arup will deliver the pre-front end engineering design (FEED) for the marine infrastructure and vessel for the 2.4 million tpy Probolinggo LNG terminal. The company will also advise on the conversion of an LNG carrier into a floating storage unit (FSU), providing geotechnical, civil, naval architecture and mechanical engineering support. The FSU will be permanently moored offshore for the design life, without requiring dry docking.
In addition to this, Arup is advising on the 2.5 km jetty, unloading platform and associated berthing infrastructure, which is required in order to transfer the LNG onshore for regasification.
The Director and East Asia Energy Business Leader at Arup, Peter Thompson, said: “We are seeing the rise of LNG globally, as it is increasingly recognised as a transitional fuel helping provide energy security with a lower carbon impact than other fossil fuels. LNG has the potential to help play an important part in Indonesia’s energy mix – bringing greater stability and security to the grid. We are proud to be working with PT Australasia LNG Indonesia to bring more capacity to the country. For Arup, it is a great opportunity for us to utilise the full breadth of our skills, having multi-disciplinary teams available in different time zones which allows us to work around the clock to deliver projects to tight schedules.”
Arup claims that the project is expected to progress to FEED and final investment decision (FID) stages shortly, with the potential to execute tank testing during the next stage of commissioning to address LNG sloshing.
