Titre Ouvrage:Floating Liquefaction (FLNG) : Potential for Wider Deployment
Édition:Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, NG 107
Following from his 2014 paper on LNG plant cost escalation, Brian Songhurst provides a comprehensive review of the state of play of FLNG, the competing approaches and the advantages and disadvantages compared with conventional onshore liquefaction. Brian also hints of further potential technology step-out in FLNG once the first wave of projects is successfully commissioned. The lessons of the post-2009 period have, it can be argued, demonstrated the need for the LNG industry to address both cost base and contractual price formation mechanisms if it is to remain a viable channel for the delivery of gas in the world’s fast growing markets.
