Offshore marine and engineering consultancy Aqualis Offshore, part of Oslo-listed Aqualis ASA, has been contracted by Gas Entec Co. Ltd to provide an engineering study of a new-build LNG barge that will operate offshore the U.S. The contract value is undisclosed.
Aqualis Offshore’s work scope is to provide a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) study for Control and Alarm Monitoring System (CAMS), Emergency Shutdown System (ESDS), and Wireless Telemetry System installed on the 2,200 cubic meter LNG bunkering/transport barge.
The LNG bunkering/transport barge will carry LNG cargo from the port facilities towards LFS (LNG Fuelled Ship) for bunkering. The LNG bunkering barge is built by Conrad Shipyard, Texas
, for TOTE.
“When we set up our Busan office last year, a key objective was to build up a presence that allowed us to support oil industry players that are based in South Korea
but who operate internationally. Gas Entec falls into this category. We believe we are a good match and are very pleased to be able to cooperate with them,” said Phil Lenox, director – Asia Pacific, Aqualis Offshore.
