By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 9 -- Golar LNG Ltd., Hamilton, Bermuda, has awarded a $90 million (Sing.) contract to Keppel Shipyard Ltd., Singapore, to convert an existing LNG carrier into a floating LNG storage and regasification unit (FSRU), a first conversion of this type, Golar said. Golar will work with Keppel on project engineering, procurement, and construction.

Saipem SPA unit Moss Maritime of Norway has prepared conceptual specifications for the FSRU and will perform design and engineering for the project.

The floating terminal's conversion will be based on DNV (Det Norske Veritas) class rules and international standards. It will have a steel monohull with LNG tanks in the middle, a regasification plant in the forward section, and crew quarters with control room and utility machinery aft. Work includes installation of a forward turret, a side-by-side mooring system, LNG loading arms, aft thruster with compartment, and a regasification plant and replacement of cargo pumps. Existing steam power electrical and marine systems will be upgraded.

The FSRU, scheduled for completion in second-quarter 2007, will be capable of sending 2.75 billion standard cu m/year of natural gas ashore via a subsea pipeline at pressures of up to 85 bar.
