China's Wison Completes Test of World's First NG Floating Liquefaction Unit
Wison Offshore & Marine Ltd. reported Tuesday that the world's first natural gas floating liquefaction unit (FLNG), being built by the company for EXMAR, has successfully completed a performance test at its yard in Nantong, China.
The 72-hour performance test was carried out in the presence of classification societies, EXMAR and all the relevant parties, with the FLNG achieving operational readiness. Wison, which won the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract from Exmar for the FLNG, said both gas trial and performance test were completed at Nantong yard before sail-out, reducing the time required for project completion.
"Floating LNG (liquefied natural gas) production, storage and transportation facilities are emerging markets with large potential. The small-scale FLNG being delivered by Wison has design advantages with low-cost and compact features, providing the market with more economical and efficient solutions. By playing a key role in the LNG midstream supply chain, Wison is dedicated to provide clients with innovative solutions to monetize their gas field assets," An Wenxin, senior vice president of Wison Offshore & Marine, said in the press release.
