Braemar Engineering Announce One Stop Shop for LNG Fueliing

Geoff Green

Braemar Engineering, the marine engineering consultancy arm within the Braemar Shipping Services Group, has launched a new venture which recognizes the growing importance of LNG as a global maritime fuel source.   It will be taking its experience and skills in dynamic positioning (DP), LNG in the marine environment, and LNG supply, and applying them to a new operation that will advise on every aspect of the use of LNG as a fuel source in the offshore sector. “This venture is a logical extension for us,” said Geoff Green, Managing Director of Braemar Engineering (formerly Wavespec). “We have unparalleled expertise in the use of LNG as fuel in the marine environment and the marine transportation and storage of LNG. Braemar Engineering has been involved in projects which have delivered more than 100 LNG fuelled vessels in the last 10 years, and we are one of only a handful of companies with the capability to carry out an LNG fuel supply FMEA (Failure Modes and Effects Analysis). This involves a systematic analysis of these complex systems to identify potential design and process failures before they occur and we then use our specialist knowledge to minimize the risk of failure.” Braemar Engineering’s shore-based LNG group supports the entire LNG supply chain from natural gas pipeline supply through to pre-treatment and LNG liquefaction, LNG transportation by land or sea

The Indian firm wants to import 2.5 million tonnes a year of LNG from Gorgon from 2010 using a new terminal being built at the southern city of Kochi. Petronet built India's first LNG terminal at Dahej, on the western coast, two years ago to import super-cooled gas from Qatar. If LNG supplies from Gorgon were delayed, Petronet would divert gas from its terminal at Dahej
