ADVANTAGES OF BUILDING LNG LIQUEFACTION/STORAGE PLANTS ON FLOATING BARGES

A barge-mounted natural gas liquefaction and storage facility, the so-called Marine LNG System (MLS) has been proposed for installation in the Persian Gulf to serve a project intended to send LNG to the east coast of the U. S. The MLS was proposed for this service because of advantages of lower project capital cost, shorter time from contract to startup and the availability of project financing. A Presentation is made of an engineering overview of the MLS project, including descriptions of the gas liquefaction process plant, the LNG storage, and the barge mooring/gas feed line, as well as control and safety features. The construction sequence and shipyard building schedules are presented.
