HiLoad LNG Offloading Solution Presented at OTC

May 12, 2016

HiLoad LNG AS, a subsidiary of Sevan Marine ASA, and Technip presented together this year the HiLoad LNG Parallel Loading System (PLS) at OTC. This system utilizes the HiLoad LNG unit for station keeping and Technip’s cryogenic flexible aerial pipes to transfer LNG from a FLNG unit (either a Sevan Marine Cylindrical unit or ship shaped FLNG) to a fully conventional LNGC with no modifications necessary.

 
The combination of the HiLoad LNG unit and Technip’s cryogenic pipes was simulated last year at MARIN’s facilities in Holland. The successful outcome of this simulation demonstrated the ability of the system to maintain vessel separation of 100m or more in rough environmental conditions and with a minimum length of the LNG transfer lines. This has been the successful outcome of over 2 years of nonexclusive development cooperation between Technip and HiLoad LNG including studies paid for by Technip in 2014 and 2015.
 
The HiLoad LNG Parallel Loading System can also be used with other transfer solutions such as a floating cryogenic hose.
