Wison delivers world's first barge-based FSRU to Exmar
SHANGHAI, China — Wison Offshore & Marine announced that the company has completed final delivery of the world’s first barge-based floating LNG storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) to Belgian company Exmar, who has also confirmed that long-term employment for the FSRU starting from mid-2018 has been secured. Further to successful delivery of the Caribbean FLNG in January 2017, this marks another key milestone for the cooperative relationship between Wison and Exmar.

The FSRU barge constructed at Wison Nantong shipyard features an LNG storage capacity of 25,000 m³ and a re-gasification capacity of 600MMSCFD. It is the first ever FSRU project undertaken by a Chinese company on EPC basis. The project was executed with a quest for efficiency and openness to innovation. For instance, modularized approach shortened the schedule and lowered the risks associated in construction phase, while a dedicated cargo handling system for the SPB tanks has been developed.
This barge-based FSRU serves as a flexible LNG receiving solution which makes considerable reductions in CapEx and lead time possible for project developers. Wison is making firm progress in cementing its leading position in providing integrated solutions and project delivery services along LNG value chain.
In the business of hydrocarbon production, accurate accounting of produced fluids and gases is critical from a process control, management and fiscal perspective.
The US East Coast will send out its first LNG exports in early 2018 as Dominion Energy’s Cove Point LNG export facility in Lusby, Maryland becomes operational.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
