CRUCIAL PARTS OF OFFSHORE LNG PLANTS FOR THE NORTH SEA
Although floating offshore natural gas treatment and liquefaction facilities are still waiting for a first realization, interest in this challenging innovative technique continues on a high level. In specific cases, these plants can offer economic advantages compared to conventional gas conveying methods by subsea pipelines. Particularly for the North Sea, with its numerous marginal offshore natural or associated gas reservoirs, LNG plants on semisubmersibles can be proper tools for early exploitation. In order to prove the technical feasibility of such systems, indepth theoretical and experimental studies have been performed during the past five years. Results of these investigations and designs will be presented with stress on the process with prime move configuration, the floating carrier platforms, LNG transfer pipeline systems, safety aspects and model testing of scrubbers under roll motions.
