With a wide range of FLNG projects under consideration, in construction, or in commissioning, SMi’s upcoming Floating LNG conference will feature an exclusive spotlight on floating infrastructure models and concepts when it returns to London next February.

Taking place on the 13th-14th February, Floating LNG 2017 is a platform to meet and discuss new and current projects, LNG market dynamics, advances in construction and technology, new business opportunities and how to make the most of them.

In the past decade, many floating LNG projects have been built or commissioned and new projects are being put under considerations. However, despite the challenging market conditions and with the oil price still causing havoc, the floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) market is showing no sign of stopping. Following this, SMi’s Floating LNG 2017 will feature three exclusive presentations to provide an overview of the scope and cost drivers for a variety of floating infrastructure models and concepts that have contributed to this rapid growth.

  • Christopher Bergsland from Affinity Ship will give insight into where the LNG shipping market is heading as well as analyse the factors facilitating the short term market such as LNG supply and demand, FSRU market and FLNG market.
  • Tom Haylock from Aragon will deliver an overview on the FLNG value chain and advise attendees on how to ensure their FLNG project is cost effective in the current market.
  • David Haynes, Director & Principal Consultants of Penguin Energy Consultant will provide an update on the latest technology and processing scale for topside design as well as the challenges that can occurred when implementing design into practice.
