  • (1888PressRelease) May 01, 2015 - Recent developments across the natural gas and LNG supply chain, particularly within the small and mid-scale sector and related industries such as the offshore, marine and shipping industries have revealed that small-mid scale projects are offering economical solutions to develop Asia's energy and maritime landscapes.

    Seemingly larger mergers such as Shell's recent acquisition of BG Group have further bolstered the region's small-mid scale sector activity. Shell's take-over of BG's operations will increase its LNG capacity to 33mtpa - of which will allow it to capitalise on the stranded reserves on Arrow through BG's Queensland Curtis LNG development, further supplementing offshore production ambitions alongside its Prelude FLNG project. Another key project in the region, Petronas FLNG, has announced it will start to deliver LNG by Q1 in 2016.

    Activity is not isolated to the offshore industry, across shipping and marine industries, LNG fuelled engine technology and LNG bunkering have also seen an increase in activity. Rolls-Royce recently confirmed it supplied the engine which propelled the world's longest pure-gas engine powered vessel journey for Nor Lines on a journey between Asia and Europe.

    The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the Port Authority of Rotterdam have also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to research LNG bunkering. This comes amidst the reports that Singapore is planning more LNG bunkering operations with the MPA's plans to launch a pilot programme for LNG bunkering in early 2017 and that SLNG's terminal on Jurong Island is able to accommodate infrastructure for the reloading of 10,000-40,000m vessels or bunkering barges.

    In response to these developments, 120 international representatives across the small-mid scale energy sector including experts from national and international oil corporations, onshore and offshore transportation firms, power and utilities companies, as well as engineering, law and advisory firms, will gather at the 4th Annual Asia Pacific Small & Mid-Scale LNG (APAC LNG) Forum in Singapore from 13 to 15 May.

    The event will feature a workshop led by DNV GL on LNG bunkering key compatibility and operational issues. The conference will focus on a range of small & mid-scale LNG trends and challenges, while featuring a dedicated session on offshore transportation solutions across LNG bunkering. A panel of speakers from DNV GL, JGC Corporation, GTT, Anthony Veder, FMC Technologies and Innovation Norway will lead the deliberations and will address transfer operations, LNG ship fuel, project finance and construction of offshore infrastructure, vessel design and more.

    Companies confirmed to attend what is set to be the region's leading small & mid-scale LNG event include ABS, BG Group, Black & Veatch, Bureau Veritas Marine, Cheniere Marketing, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, Ebara International, GDF Suez, Marubeni, Meralco, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding, Mitsui OSK Lines, Norgas Carriers, Osaka Gas, Pavilion Energy, Philippine National Oil Company, PT Indonesia Infrastructure Finance, PGN LNG, PTT, Shell, Singapore LNG Corporation, STX Offshore & Shipbuilding, Vopak, Wartsila, WorleyParsons and others.
