Floating LNG – A Rapidly Expanding Technology & Business


Presented by: Brian Songhurst


Floating LNG has two forms – floating storage & regasification (FSRUs) and floating liquefaction (FLNG). There are now 13 FSRUs in operation and 11 under development and this technology is increasing becoming ‘business as usual’ and often becoming the terminal of choice for the smaller capacities. However floating liquefaction is still in the development phase and the first 3 units are currently under construction - and there is a race on as to who will be first!
