Hyundai Heavy Develops FLNG Model

Hyundai FLNG Model

Hyundai Heavy Industries, the world’s biggest shipbuilder and offshore facilities contractor announced today that the Company completed developing its own Hyundai FLNG (Floating Liquefied Natural Gas Plant) model in association with Linde AG, an international industrial gases and engineering company of Germany.   The Hyundai FLNG has an annual production capacity of 2.5 million tons of LNG and can store about 193,800 m3 LNG with its compact size of 355 m in length, 70 m width and 35 m in height. The FLNG, existing only as a concept as for now, is a special floating vessel that can produce natural gas, liquefy it, and offload it directly to an LNG carrier. Hyundai Heavy conducted risk and safety evaluations of the FLNG and received the approval-in-principle from the Norway’s DNV.   The FLNG consists of hull and topside facilities. The topside includes not only liquefaction and pre-treatment units but also utilities such as fresh water supply unit, the air compression, heat source and power generation systems. The development of Hyundai FLNG makes Hyundai Heavy the only company in the world that can conduct engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning for both the topside and hull part. Since Hyundai FLNG takes 25% less time to build compared to the onshore liquefaction and storage plant

Shell announces final investment decision on Prelude Floating LNG project in Australia. The Board of Royal Dutch Shell plc (Shell) has taken the final investment decision on the Prelude Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) Project in Australia (100% Shell), building the world’s first FLNG facility. Moored far out to sea, some 200 kilometres from the nearest land in Australia, the FLNG facility will produce gas from offshore fields, and liquefy it onboard by cooling.
