RINA Group to Project-Manage Indonesian FSRU

(Press Release)
Monday, May 21, 2012

Italy-based RINA Group will deliver concept selection, FEED, support during negotiations with potential shipyards, project management during construction, and support for commissioning for a new floating LNG FSRU terminal in South Sumatra, Indonesia.

 

RINA has been appointed by PGAS Solution, a subsidiary of PGN, Indonesia’s largest natural gas distribution company, which will own and operate the FSRU.

The Floating Storage and Regasification Unit is to serve as an LNG importing hub for PGN in South Sumatra and will have a storage capacity of 170,000 cu m and a regasification capacity up to 500 mmscfd. FSRU Charlie will be installed at Labuhan Maringgai Lampung in a water depth of about 20 m and linked to the shore by a 21 km pipeline. The terminal is intended to come into service in mid-2014.

Angelo Lo Nigro, energy development manager, RINA, says, “RINA has been selected because we can deliver a wide range of engineering and marine competence and proven experience with offshore gas. Floating solutions for LNG and CNG exploitation and transportation are a fast-growing area. Our experience gives us a lead in helping utilities to bring projects on stream quickly and safely.”

The appointment by PGAS Solution builds on RINA’s recent appointment to deliver the world’s first marine CNG project in Indonesia, and on its experience with offshore LNG worldwide. That includes the world’s first offshore LNG terminal in the Adriatic, which is now on stream, the OLT Livorno, which will be the world’s first floating offshore terminal and which is under conversion under RINA supervision, the technical and economic feasibility study of an FSRU for West Ghana, engineering analyses for the side-by-side configuration of an FSRU off Montevideo, and authority engineering for the Italian Falconara FSRU.
