1.7 million tonnes/annum

LNG produced by the facility

Modular design

of topside facilities

Flexible operation

capable of handling a range of field gas compositions

The floating LNG facility was designed to produce in excess of 1.7 million tonnes of LNG per annum, processing a range of feed gas compositions. The topside facilities are modular in design and consist of a field specific section, conditioning the incoming gas to a specification suitable for processing in a generic section. The generic section incorporates a gas pre-treatment plant for the removal of carbon dioxide, water and mercury, and a two-train liquefaction system. The generic section has the potential to be replicated on further LNG Producer vessels.
