Fossil Energy – Conversions
Sembcorp Marine, Singapore, awarded Master Service Agreements for the engineering, conversion, topside fabrication and integration of two Sevan cylindrical drilling vessels into Floating LNG facilities, including the fabrication and integration of LNG topside modules.
This award underpins Sembcorp Marine’s proven capabilities to provide customised solutions to clients in the energy sector
The hull conversion and fabrication of topsides for the first FLNG liquefaction facility is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2024 through the Work Engagement Contract awarded by NFE.
Work on the second FLNG liquefaction facility project is expected to be contracted through further Work Engagement Contracts to Sembcorp Marine at a later date.
The two FLNG liquefaction units will host the NFE-designed Fast LNG liquefaction production facility with a capacity of approximately 1.4 mtpa (million tonnes per annum). LNG produced will be stored in a separate LNG tanker moored near the FLNG liquefaction facility.
While NFE currently has Fast LNG liquefaction facilities on jack-up rigs under construction in the U.S., this marks the first set of two Sevan cylindrical hulls to be re-purposed into FLNG liquefaction facilities.
