Aqualis Offshore contracted to provide engineering study of a newbuild LNG carrier
Offshore marine and engineering consultancy Aqualis Offshore, part of Oslo-listed Aqualis ASA, has been contracted by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries Co. Ltd to provide an engineering study of a new-build LNG carrier the yard is constructing for Teekay LNG, the Company said in a press release. The contract value is undisclosed.
Aqualis Offshore’s work scope is to provide failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), hazard dentification (HAZID) and hazard & operability (HAZOP) studies for the boil-off gas handling system and fuel gas system on board the vessel. Aqualis Offshore will also provide FMEA-studies of the vessel’s propulsion redundancy and steering system as well as ensure that electrical generation and distribution systems and associated control systems are designed such that a single fault will not result in the loss of ability to maintain cargo tank pressures.
Teekay LNG will utilise the LNG carrier to provide transportation services for BP Shipping’s LNG volumes from the Freeport LNG project located on Quintana Island near Freeport, Texas.
Aqualis Offshore’s office in Seoul, South Korea, will manage the engineering study project.
“We established a physical presence on the doorstep of the many South Korean yards to support industry players who are based in South Korea but operate internationally. This latest contract with Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries confirms that this strategy is beneficial for both the local yards and international companies such as Teekay LNG,” says Phil Lenox, director – Asia Pacific, Aqualis Offshore.
Aqualis Offshore, part of Oslo-listed Aqualis ASA, is a specialised marine and offshore engineering consultancy focusing on the shallow and deep-water segments of the offshore oil and gas industry.
