Braemar Engineering Announce One Stop Shop for LNG Fueliing

Press Release

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, LNG receiving and regasification ready for end use at the burner tip. Its project services cover all aspects of the process, from conceptual citing/feasibility studies, code compliance and permitting through to design, front-end engineering and design (FEED), construction oversight, commissioning and right through to start-up.


The new venture, headed up by Sheila McClain, VP Business Development, is based in Houston Texas and will begin focusing on operations in the Gulf of Mexico, but according to Ms. McClain, opportunities exist in the offshore sector in other areas around the world. “We believe that Braemar Engineering is the only company offering a full range of LNG fuelling services from pipeline to combustion,” she explained. “We have developed this project team in response to demands from our customers and look to build a reputation as the ‘one stop shop’ in LNG as fuel in the maritime industry.”
