What Hegh LNG offers

What is a Floating LNG Terminal?

A Floating Storage and Regasification Unit is permanently moored close to the market

1. Project specific mooring solution

Some other mooring examples:

Offshore mooring

Double-berth jetty

What is a Floating LNG Terminal?

An LNG carrier approaches the FSRU to bring a new cargo

The FSRU is compatible with the

2. world LNG carrier fleet
Typically, LNGCs of 80,000 to
170,000 cbm will be used
Both Moss and Membrane type
LNGCs are compatible

Full feasibility to discharge LNG

from the FSRU to
LNG bunker vessels,
short-sea LNG shipping,
road trucks

What is a Floating LNG Terminal?

The LNG is transferred from the LNG carrier to the FSRU

LNG transfer can be done ship-to-

1. ship or across a berth with loading
arms or flexible hoses

Flexible hoses

Across a berth

What is a Floating LNG Terminal?

The FSRU continuously regasifies the LNG and sends high-pressure natural gas to shore

Onboard regasification of LNG

4. Output from 1 to 10 bcm p.a., but
typically 3-5 bcm p.a.
Multiple seawater pumps provide
the heat to warm the LNG; steam
heat may replace or supplement
the seawater heating
A modular and skid-based design
Proven systems and components
High reliability

Regas skids

Floating regas: cost effective, quick and flexible solution

Floating regas (FSRU) Onshore import terminal

Low cost High cost

Short lead time (2-3 years) Long lead time (3-5 years)
Low upfront capital requirements due to a Significant upfront investment capital
lease structure needed
Limited regulatory issues (Nb. offshore) Complex regulatory approval processes
Flexible and scalable Limited flexibility and scalability
Unit deployed offshore or close to shore Requires large tracts of land
Moveable or even used as LNG carrier Fixed location
Flexible for shorter terms Intended for long-term use
* Based on throughput capacity of 350-1,000 mmcfpd with a
construction cost of approx. USD 1 billion per 1 bcfpd
