AG&P converts LNGC into FSRU

Gas Entec, a unit of Singapore-based AG&P, has converted a 125,000m³ LNG carrier (LNGC) into an 84mn ft3/day modular floating storage and regasification unit (M-FSRU) for Karmol, a joint-venture between Turkey's Karpowership and Japan's Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL), it said on May 9.

This M-FSRU is delivering gas from LNG to Karpowership's 236 MW floating power plant, the Karadeniz Powership Aysegul Sultan in Port Dakar, Senegal, the company said. This integrated, floating complex will serve shore-based grids in Senegal. The existing floating power plant previously used heavy fuel oil to meet about 15% of the west African nation's power demand.

"The conversion to natural gas represents a remarkable achievement for Senegal's ambition to be a leader in the transition to clean energy," AG&P said. 

For the Karmol project, Gas Entec was responsible for the complete design including FEED, basic, detail and production design engineering, class approval and development, supply of regasification technology, project management, test and commissioning of essential regas equipment and systems and installation works for the floating LNG M-FSRU.
