SMM to Expand REN Terminal

SMM concluded a project with a value of 19 million euros at the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) REN Terminal, in Sines.

The Terminal expansion foresaw a storage capacity increase, with the erection of one cryogenic tank for LNG, with a capacity of 150.000 m3, as well as the send out capacity increase, with a new send out train and a new truck loading bay.

SMM was responsible for the tank mechanical erection, as well as the process piping and respective equipments, acting as a subcontractor to TGE which, in a partnership with SOMAGUE, was responsible for the EPC (Engineering Procurement & Construction) of the Terminal.

SMM developed its works during 32 months, and the conclusion took place one month ahead of schedule

The works were fully performed by Portuguese engineers, technicians and direct manpower reaching a peak of 150 workers.

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.
