Smooth Sailing: Considerations for Planning a Floating LNG Facility

Train size and liquefaction process selection are key decisions that influence the overall capacity and size of an FLNG vessel. Taking advantage of economies of scale can be used to maximize LNG production in the smallest footprint and lowest module weight.

In addition, using the highest efficiency liquefaction process will maximize the LNG production for a fixed gas turbine or motor size, with low carbon emissions. Considerations such as these should be reviewed early in project development to maximize the economics of an FLNG project. Air Products’ technology and equipment has been used extensively in offshore applications, rigorously tested with proven low cost, high reliability, high efficiency, reduced carbon footprint and operational flexibility and this article provides insight into key considerations that should be taken into account when planning a floating LNG facility.
