PNG LNG Onshore Pipeline Reaches Halfway Milestone

PNG LNG Onshore Pipeline Reaches Halfway Milestone

The PNG LNG Project onshore pipeline has reached a significant milestone, with 50% of the LNG gas pipeline now welded.

Welding of the pipeline began in April 2011, and since then the progress has been rapid, despite challenging weather conditions and terrain.

As we have increased our understanding of the environment, we have improved our productivity rate,” Suresh Batra, Onshore Pipeline Project Manager, said.

We will take that experience as we continue with the remaining section of the pipeline, and ensure that the work is done safely.”

People are our most important resource, our accomplishments have only been possible because of the wide network of people who have pulled together to make this project possible,” said Mr Batra.

The 292-kilometre onshore pipeline is being constructed to transport the gas from the Hides Gas Conditioning Plant, which is currently under construction, down to the Omati area where it will connect to the offshore pipeline.

Elsewhere in the Project, progress is being made to meet first gas in 2014 with the first LNG tank roof installed and the 2.4km jetty trestle nearing completion at the LNG Plant site, and the offshore pipeline construction almost finished.

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
