Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG)

Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG)

From feasibility studies to plant startup, Black & Veatch understands your specific business drivers. We use that knowledge to tailor the right FLNG solution for your business.   

FLNG facilities provide more flexibility and enable the monetization of assets through liquefaction of natural gas in remote areas. They reduce development costs and time from schedules. FLNG solutions are also being considered for exporting near-shore gas reserves or gas from an on-land pipeline network by locating the LNG production facility near shore. 

We have 50-plus years of LNG experience with 30-plus plants in operation globally. Our patented PRICO® technology is modular and scalable – ideal for multiple types of FLNG configurations. PRICO® offers several innovative, low-cost FLNG configurations using the space. It is an efficient and simple-to-operate liquefaction technology for both offshore and near-shore applications.

Black & Veatch’s PRICO® SMR became the world’s first proven FLNG technology to achieve production on a floating facility in 2016. Having completed over 20 FLNG conceptual studies, pre-FEEDs and FEEDs, Black & Veatch’s innovative FLNG solutions include multiple configurations:

  • Barge – Small-Mid Scale.
  • Ship Shape – Mid Scale.
  • Conversion - Small-Mid Scale.
    • Existing MOSS LNGC.
    • Existing/New LNGC (membrane).
    • Existing Bulk Carrier.

Black & Veatch has multiple projects in development and construction, including the first MOSS vessel conversion to an FLNG facility, the Golar GoFLNG Hilli.

In addition to complete EPCIC (engineering, procurement, construction, installation, commissioning) solutions, we provide technology, feasibility studies, and FEED to bankable EPCIC solutions. Black & Veatch ensures low capital cost and reliable, environmentally responsible facilities globally.
