DSME debuts LNG-FPSO plans

DSME debuts LNG-FPSO plans

Barcelona: Korea's Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering has unveiled its own generic LNG floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit at the FLNG 2010 meeting in Barcelona, a sector that rival Samsung has sewn up so far. ?
The yard has developed a design for a two-million-tonne-per-annum (mtpa) LNG-FPSO. ??Named DFLNG, the unit will be 310 metres long, 65 metres wide and 20.3 metres high. ??It will house eight tanks arranged in two rows and use the No 96 membrane-type containment system. ??The LNG floater would have capacity to supply 210,000 cbm of LNG, 20,000 cbm of LPG and 40,000 cbm of condensate. ??It would be fitted with an internal turret mooring system and be kitted out for side-by-side offloading. Visiting shuttle LNG carriers ranging in size from 135,000 cbm to 175,000 cbm can be accommodated. [02/06/10]
