THE BRUNEI LNG SHIP LOADING SYSTEM

The Brunei LNG project is a new venture to provide Japan with liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Brunei. The liquefaction plant, located near Lumut, will be owned and operated by Brunei LNG Ltd, a new company owned 45% by Shell, 45% by Mitsubishi, and 10% by the Brunei government. The LNG (approximately 4 million tons per annum) will be purchased from Brunei LNG Ltd., by Coldgas Trading Ltd., for resale in Japan. LNG transport will be accomplished with six (6) specially designed tankers now under construction. Each tanker has a capacity of approximately 470,000 barrels. A unique pipeline extending 2-1/2 miles offshore to the tanker loading terminal is supported on trestles 20 feet over the water. A special insulation technique to protect the insulation from exposure to the elements uses polyurethane foam with a glass reinforced epoxy covering. The loading system is completely automated for safety and ease of control.
