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.
