FLNG Joint Industry Project

The following article published in LNG Industry magazine here discusses how EM&I technologies—initially adopted and proven by the oil and gas industry—can also be adapted and used successfully in the LNG sector for floating production, storage, and regasification facilities.

EM&I are leading the FloGas Joint industry project, which consists of operators, classification societies and service providers, and has formed working groups to develop safe and economical methods for the enhanced integrity of FLNG assets in the LNG sector such as FSRU and FLNG vessels.

These groups will be concentrating their efforts on dealing with the top three challenges identified in FloGas, namely:

  • Remote inspection of LNG storage tanks without man entry.
  • Hull inspection and integrity management (FSRU) alongside, in shallow, turbid, or potentially fast flowing water.
  • Grow the competency and numbers of inspectors of LNG systems.
