GTT wins FLNG tank design order from Samsung Heavy

France’s GTT has received an order from South Korean shipyard Samsung Heavy Industries for the tank design of a new floating LNG (FLNG) unit, on behalf of an Asian company, it said on March 28.

With a total storage capacity of 200,000 m3, this FLNG will be the first fitted with the membrane containment system Mark III Flex developed by GTT.


The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.

"We are proud to be involved in the construction of this FLNG. Thanks to our Mark III Flex technology, this FLNG will benefit from the best thermal performance available today. This new order brings to five the number of FLNGs fitted with GTT technologies,” GTT CEO Philippe Berterottiere said.

GTT said the FLNG unit will be delivered in the first quarter of 2027.
