This 3-day course is designed to provide an insight into the rapid development now occuring in design and construction of FLNG facilities. It covers technical and operational aspects involved in establishing an FLNG facility and reviews recent developments, FLNG project status and certification requirements.
As an introduction, the course briefly reviews the LNG chain, development and status of LNG trade and the advantages of relocating liquefaction and regasification facilities offshore. It describes liquefaction, regasifaction, storage and transfer technologies and major equipment, and provides insights into the unique design and operational challenges of producing LNG offshore.
Who Should Attend
This course will be of interest to engineers involved in the design, construction and operation of FLNG facilities as well as commercial and management staff seeking an overview. It is suitable for engineers new to FLNG and those seeking to work in the FLNG sector, as well as operational, maintenance, technical and admistrative staff, legal and finance personnel.
