Lavaca Bay LNG

gulfTechnica were appointed by Excelerate Energy to conduct the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) work for the development of the first floating gas liquefaction facility in the United States utilising its Floating Liquefaction Storage Offloading vessel (FLSO™) technology. The facility will be situated on the Texas Gulf Coast, and will be designed to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) to markets worldwide by 2017.

A single FLSO vessel can support 4 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of production capacity, 250,000 cubic meters (m³) of LNG storage, with a fully integrated gas processing plant. With this gas processing capability, the FLSO accommodates a wide range of gas compositions at its inlet making it well suited for virtually any application near shore or offshore. The gas processing equipment can be removed and liquefaction capacity increased to 5 MTPA for those situations where there are existing gas processing facilities or where pipeline quality gas is used as the feedstock.

The FLSO will measure 338 meters in length, with a breadth of 62 meters. FEED has been carried out from our Grimsby based office with regular meetings in the UK and Houston.
