Barge-mounted Natural Gas Liquefaction

Press Release
Wednesday, February 13, 2013

EDF Trading with EXMAR intend to seek small-scale LNG export opportunities in North America using barge-mounted natural gas liquefaction.

The mobile gas liquefaction plants are developed by EXMAR, Wison and Black&Veatch.

The aim would be to bring mobile, self-contained liquefaction units to LNG import terminals in the US using existing pipeline, tank and jetty infrastructure to enable LNG export.

EDF Trading and EXMAR have secured the support of the Wison Group for the provision of turn-key EPCIC services for the construction and commissioning of barge-mounted liquefaction plants. These plants will make use of Black&Veatch’s proven PRICO® single mixed refrigerant liquefaction technology but no commercial terms of the arrangements were disclosed.

"We are honored to join EDF Trading in their LNG export ambitions", said Nicolas Saverys, CEO of EXMAR. "Building on the experience of EXMAR-Wison-Black&Veatch gained in Colombia, we can deliver a proven, reliable, cost-efficient and fast solution catered to individual project requirements".

“Barge-mounted liquefaction is a cost-effective and efficient method of producing LNG”, said John Rittenhouse, Chief Executive of EDF Trading. “It is also potentially the quickest route to market and scalable to fit a wide range of applications. We are very pleased to be working with experienced partners like Exmar and Wison,” he said.

EDF Trading is a leading player on the global gas and LNG wholesale markets. It has its own portfolio of gas assets including production, transmission, transportation, re-gasification, long-term supply and storage. It is the fifth largest marketer of gas in North America and markets around 7.2 bcf of gas a day with firm storage capacity in excess of 47 bcf.

EXMAR headquartered in Antwerp, Belgium, is a reputable international shipping and marine services group and a leader in the development and operation of offshore LNG applications and facilities.
