LNG Terminal
Float has suggested the following uses of the PSP which could provide them with capabilities that would substantially reduce costs.
  • PSP technology would enable LNG producers to combine processing, treating, storing, and liquification of natural gas, as well as its loading onto LNG tankers, on one floating PSP facility. This should not only reduce the cost of servicing near shore gas fields, but enable the development of gas fields farther from shore or in deeper water.

  • Oil producers could build a refinery on a PSP. Refined products could be shipped directly from the platform and the need to ship crude oil would be eliminated.

  • In both cases, when a field plays out, the assets are recoverable.
Float is actively seeking working relationships with oil and gas development projects or engineering companies that are interested in these cost savings.
Why a Floating Platform?
  • May be moved if market conditions change
  • It may be built remotely from its operating site - connected to pre-installed moorings, pipe- & power lines
  • Requires much less construction material than a GBS
  • Is easily disposed of when its long useful life is ended
  • Will have small motions, compatible with docked tanker
Offshore Floating LNG for Portugal
  • Constructed in reinforced concrete - 320m L, 130m B, 38.5m H
  • 4 hectares deck space
