Hamworthy Wins West Java FSRU Regas System Contract

Hamworthy has signed a contract with Golar LNG to deliver a liquefied natural gas regasification system for the West Java FSRU, which will be Indonesia's first LNG regasification terminal.

The Golar group has already completed two FSRU conversions over the last three years, with LNG handling equipment supplied by Hamworthy. The FSRU for the West Java FSRU Project will be similar in design to the latest of these projects, the Golar Freeze, recently delivered to Dubai.

"This will be our 5th FSRU project and we have gained invaluable operational experience that will benefit this new contract," said Tore Lunde, Managing Director, Hamworthy Oil & Gas Systems. "In fact we have just completed gas trials onboard an FSRU being chartered by DUSUP/Shell, where we have again proven the operational flexibility of our patented system.

"Our experience and insight will be used in the new fast track project for Golar," continued Lunde. "The project will include further developments that will ease installation and reduce interfaces during the retrofit of the regasification equipment. Further development of the FSRU market looks promising as they facilitate fast track gas deliveries to areas that currently do not have LNG receiving facilities."
