The LNG terminal is a steel mono hull with Moss® LNG tanks arranged in the middle. The terminal is permanently moored to seabed with a turret mooring arrangement mounted fwd.1 INTRODUCTION This document describes a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) for LNG. 2 LNG TERMINAL A 3D illustration of the proposed terminal outline is shown in Figure 1 below. The terminal is based on conversion of an existing Moss type LNG carrier. Figure 1 – 3D Illustration of FSRU concept by A Company of Page 3 . Berthing. regasification plant in the forward end (port side) and crew facilities. Process and utility systems have been chosen and designed for simplicity and least retrofit as well as for ease of operation and maintenance. The LNG tankers offloading to the floating terminal will be moored in a side-by-side configuration. and the gas send-out line is arranged through the turret down to the seabed and to shore via a seabed pipeline. loading and de-berthing will take approximately 24 hours. control room and utility machinery in the aft end. The FSRU is to be permanently moored offshore and export gas to shore through a sub sea pipeline.

flexible risers and associated control/service lines.1 FSRU DESCRIPTION TURRET MOORING The turret to be connected in front of the bow and causes a need for modification of the bow of the ship.00 m 11. The turret shall be configured to provide an essential non-rotating platform for supporting the anchor lines.0 MMTPA Nominal gas send-out pressure: 85 bar Water depth: 50-150 m Terminal location: Benign environmental conditions 4 VESSEL DATA The LNG carrier to be converted has the following data: Vessel type Owner Built Capacity Length (LOA) Breadth (moulded) Depth (moulded) Draft (design) Complement Existing LNG Carrier of Moss design Golar LNG 1981 129.40 m Approx.00 m 44.3 DESIGN BASIS The terminal design shall be based on the following general requirements: • • • • • • • LNG storage capacity 129 000 m3 Accommodation as today Design life: Permanently moored and in operation for 20 years Maximum gas send-out capacity: 2.60 m 25. 44 men 5 5.

5. After berthing a combination of transverse mooring lines and spring lines will be used to limit horizontal relative motions.000 to 137. The side-by-side mooring system shall consist of a number of fenders (typically six) and a suitable number of mooring lines. however modified to account for relative motions between carrier and FSRU. 5. The booster pumps will increase the pressure to about 90 bar. Berthing. after which the gas passes a fiscal metering unit and is sent to the sub sea pipeline via the gas swivel and flexible risers.0. Operation with two LNG arms will ensure a loading time of 16 hours.000 m3 the arrival schedule will be about every 9 days. The terminal will be fitted with an azimuth thruster. The FSRU will be equipped with quick release hooks with adjustable release load. two for liquid and one for vapor return. and roller fairleads as required. for control of the terminal during LNG carrier berthing/de-berthing. The approach and berthing operation of the LNG carrier will take place in a way very similar to what is the case for onshore terminals.): 0 °C A Company of Page 5 . loading and de-berthing will take approximately 24 hours. The regasification system shall have the following key design data: • Maximum gas send-out pressure: 85 bar • Maximum gas send-out flow: 240 tonnes/hr • Gas send-out temperature (min. before the high pressure LNG is vaporized. The FSRU shall be equipped with three 16 inch LNG loading arms. This pre-coupling guide operation will be necessary to compensate for relative motion during coupling when the relative motion exceeds +/.5. The regasification skid essentially comprises booster pumps and vaporizers. The FSRU will also be fitted with equipment for guiding the arms onto the carrier’s connection flanges.5m.4 LNG REGASIFICATION LNG is sent from the tanks to the regasification skid fwd.3 LOADING ARMS The FSRU will be provided with standard loading arms to allow side-by-side transfer of LNG and vapor return. Assuming that the terminal is being serviced by LNG carriers of size 125. The loading arms will be quite similar to the type that is used on onshore terminals.2 SIDE-BY-SIDE MOORING SYSTEM The terminal shall allow safe berthing of standard LNG carriers. During berthing the cargo tanker will need the assistance from two tugs with minimum 50 tonnes bollard pull. There is no need for modification of the berthed LNG carriers.

as per original design requirements. 5. In addition there is a diesel driven generator as well as a diesel driven emergency generator. A Company of Page 6 . The boilers will run on natural gas only. The terminal will operate at a higher pressure than the offloading LNG carriers. There are two existing steam driven turbo generators onboard.5. and partly by additional fuel supplied by the LNG vaporizers. partly covered by suction of BOG from the vapor header.25%/day.6 ONBOARD POWER GENERATION The existing equipment shall be used for onboard power generation.5 BOG HANDLING Maximum boil-off from the storage tanks is 0. and one more of similar type will be installed. The boil-off gas is removed from the tanks and used as fuel for steam generation in the FSRU boilers. and thus avoiding excessive BOG handling equipment.
