Floating Liquified Natural Gas and Floating Storage and Regasification Unit Projects


This practice note discusses floating liquified natural gas (LNG) and floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) projects. Floating LNG projects are those which involve processing the gas while on a floating facility; either regasification prior to import into shore pipelines, or liquefaction of gas prior to transport on board a vessel. Topics discussed include floating regasification, floating liquefaction, and the numerous risks involved in these projects.
