Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific Company (AG&P) signed a memorandum of understanding with Air Liquide to develop small-scale LNG infrastructure across Asia. 

The partnership will focus on liquefaction, transportation and downstream infrastructure to deliver LNG to end users seeking LNG for power, shipping, ground transport and other industrial applications.

AG&P sad that under the MoU, the two companies will start developing standardized downstream LNG modules.

Commenting on the agreement, AG&P’s chairman, Jose Leviste said the agreement with Air Liquide “will enable the integration of downstream LNG infrastructure, including small-scale regasification terminals, distribution hubs, truck loading stations and boil-off gas handling systems into AG&P’s LNG supply network for rapid delivery of tolled gas to last-mile customers.”

The MoU covers boil-off gas (BOG) management systems eliminating gas flaring.

The demand for LNG continues to grow worldwide as countries seek to replace oil and heavy fuel oil with LNG as a cleaner and cheaper fuel for power generation, shipping, ground transport and industrial use, AG&P’s statement reads.

However, uptake remains slow because of a lack of the requisite infrastructure and investment to ensure supply.

“Much of Asia requires the development of assets to bring the gas from its source to demand centers dispersed over vast geographies where it is estimated that US$70 to $80 billion needs to be invested in gas infrastructure over the next decade.

Through this MoU, AG&P and Air Liquide aim to start the development of this LNG infrastructure

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
