AG&P Converts LNG Carrier Into FSU Unit

AG&P Converts LNG Carrier Into FSU Unit
Atlantic, Gulf & Pacific International Holdings has converted a 137,512 cubic meter LNG carrier called ISH into a Floating Storage Unit.

Atlantic, Gulf & Pacific International Holdings (AG&P) has converted a 137,512 cubic meter LNG carrier called ISH into a Floating Storage Unit (FSU).

The ISH is a central component of the first Philippines LNG Import Terminal (PHLNG). Ready to be docked at AG&P's PHLNG facility in Batangas, the FSU is part of the combined offshore-onshore import terminal that will have an initial capacity of 5 million tons per annum (mtpa).

The hybrid PHLNG terminal is designed to provide its customers with the resiliency of supply and high availability, even during storms.

In February 2022, AG&P signed a 15-year long-term charter agreement with ADNOC Logistics and Services for the supply, operations, and maintenance of its 137,512 cubic meter Floating Storage Unit (FSU) for the PHLNG import terminal.

AG&P's subsidiary GAS Entec completed the conversion to an FSU in record time. The FSU will be capable of loading LNG at a peak rate of 10,000 cbm per hour and a discharge-to-shore peak rate of 8,000 cbm per hour made possible with the modifications done by Gas Entec in the Cargo Handling and Safety System that allows for simultaneous loading and discharge of LNG.

"I am delighted to announce the successful completion of the FSU for our PHLNG Terminal that AG&P has executed in-house.  This represents yet another milestone for Gas Entec which continues to be a market leader in the conversion of LNG carriers into floating terminals, extending their productive life, and opening new markets. We look forward to opening the PHLNG LNG Regasification Terminal in early 2023, bringing LNG for the first time to the Philippines," Joseph Sigelman, Chairman and CEO of AG&P Group, said.

"The PHLNG import terminal will store LNG and dispatch natural gas to power plants, industrial and commercial customers, and other consumers. From day one, PHLNG will have a scalable onshore regasification capacity of 420 mmscfd and almost 200,000 cbm of storage. The construction for two onshore tanks as part of PHLNG's second phase has already started and will be integrated as part into the main terminal in 2024, ensuring high availability and reliability of natural gas for our customers," Karthik Sathyamoorthy, President of AG&P Terminals and Logistics, added.
