ABS has granted Approval in Principle to Wison Offshore and Marine (WOM) for its standardized 1.3MTPA and 3.0MTPA floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) designs.
ABS Vice President，Global Gas Solutions，Mr. Patrick Janssens said： “ABS has been the preferred classification organization for the offshore and energy industry for more than 60 years. With increasing global concern for the environment, clean gas-based energy plays an integral role within that framework. ABS applies its experience and knowledge to support members and clients involved in gas-related projects, including LNG and LPG transportation, the use of LNG and other gases as fuel and emerging offshore LNG terminal technology projects”.
WOM’s FLNG division General Manager, Mr. WEI Huaqing stated that “We really appreciated ABS for their support and help in the development of our standardized FLNG designs. Through close cooperation, WOM has been able to optimize the design for both of the 1.3 MTPA and 3.0 MTPA facilities providing economic advantages to both potential Clients and EPCIC Contractor.”
WOM believes the standardized nature of the design enables economies of scale in terms of procurement and streamlines construction and commissioning processes.
