Thursday, September 16, 2010

According to a Sept 15 report from Bloomberg, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. said its Papua New Guinea energy venture may beat Royal Dutch Shell Plc to become the first operator of a floating liquefied natural gas production vessel. The venture could begin using a floating LNG unit in 2014 to process gas from an onshore field, Kim Jin Seok, chief executive officer of DSME E&R Ltd., the shipbuilder’s oil and gas arm, said in an interview in Seoul. Shell is due to receive the first of as many as 10 floating LNG plants in 2016 for use off Australia.
