Tapping the potential of floating LNGOrganisations across the planet are slowly waking up to the possibilities presented byfloating liquefied natural gas (LNG), which for many is currently an untappedrevenue stream.Despite having significant potential, however, the majority of organisations in the oiland gas sector are still not benefiting from the opportunities presented by thisemerging technology.As floating LNG allows for the tapping of offshore gas reserves and access tostranded fields, and is an alternative to costly infrastructure investments, many expectinterest in it to gain momentum in the coming years, and one of these is the Bermuda-based Teekay LNG Partners, the largest LNG tank owner in North America.In an interview with Bloomberg, Peter Evensen, chief executive officer of theorganisation, said that tankers which can convert liquid to gas onboard will be in"increasing demand" in the next ten years, mainly as a result of rising electricityproduction boosting consumption.He stated: "The biggest new thing in the LNG area is floating storage regas units.These are ships that cater for a sudden need for gas for power."According to Mr Evensen, the company has so far identified 30 different sites whichmay need floating LNG converters in the coming five years, and these range fromglobal powerhouses such as China to Bangladesh and Indonesian islands.The current head of the companys North American division is set to take over asparent company Teekay Corporations chief executive in 2011 and said that during histenure he will be seeking to expand the number of tankers being used across theplanet.As the technology enables transportation by sea to markets not yet connected bypipelines, he said that the tankers effectively act as "import terminals", because theyare capable of carrying LNG to these areas as liquid before converting it back to gasand sending it to local pipelines.Companies utilising the technology find that the key benefits of doing so areunlocking offshore gas reserves, monetising stranded fields and bypassing expensiveinfrastructure, and Mr Evensen recognises that the likes of Dubai and Kuwait will alsoshow interest in the next five years."Thats probably where you are going to see a lot of incremental traffic. We are alsoseeing more places that burn fuel oil start to switch over to gas," he told Bloomberg.At the moment, the global LNG tanker fleet capable of converting LNG into gasconsists of 15 vessels, and Teekay, which currently owns 15 LNG tankers without this
capability, earlier this year confirmed that it had purchased a 50 per cent stake in oneof these advanced carriers.However, the LNG chief executive said he is currently "pessimistic" about the state ofUS LNG exports, as costs are generally higher than in regions such as Qatar, mainlydue to the time taken for the commodity to reach consumers.Nevertheless, companies such as Freeport LNG Development, Macquarie Group andCheniere Energy have stated their intention to build LNG export terminals across theUS.Mr Evensen speculated: "Gas has a great future in the US, but I dont believeexporting gas from the US has a great future.""Today you have Qatar, Malaysia, and Indonesia exporting LNG, but the one thatsgoing to be huge in the future is Australia. There is going to be plenty of gas evenbefore you take into account new LNG projects in Africa."In terms of the distances which need to be travelled, he said that it is "clearly" lessexpensive to bring gas from the Australasian countries and Indonesia to the majorLNG import markets, which include China, Japan and Korea.One thing is clear, however, the global floating LNG market will continue to grow inthe next ten years and organisations which have the knowledge and expertise to assessthe business case for investing in the technology will be the ones who benefit themost.The Global Floating LNG Summit will be hosted from 24th - 26th January in London.

Workshop Day Monday 24th January 2011Workshop 09.00 - 12.00 AM What’s missing for the sanction of the first Floating Liquefaction Vessel? The industry has been studying floating liquefaction for the past 40 years and a lot of money has been spent on engineering studies but still no sanctioned project. It has been mentioned that one company alone has spent around $500 million to date on their concept but still no orders. This workshop will summarise the current options on offer and then look at the issues that are likely preventing approval of the first project. Namely; • The need for an economic solution that will generate a profit to stakeholders; • The main technical issues and how they can be mitigated • The main commercial issues and how they can be addressed • The need to comply with the project development ‘gated’ process for smooth energy company buy-in and approval; • The project execution strategy to be adopted, particularly for new technology; • The lessons learned from the recent successful floating storage and regasification projects and how they could be applied to benefit floating liquefaction projects; Your workshop leader: Brian Songhurst, Director LNG, Energy and Power About Oil & Gas IQ “The event brought together Become a member of Oil and Gas IQ and receive complimentary resources that will keep you at the forefront of industry change, access all the known players in the to our growing library of multi-media presentations, an email newsletter updating you on new content that has aggregated news feed from over field and really demonstrated 1000 global news sources industry and special member only discounts on events.
