Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) of South Korea on Wednesday said it has developed its own LNG containment system, named DSC16 (DSME Cargo Containment System 16).

In its statement, DSME said the Korean shipbuilders had to rely on foreign technology, paying KRW12 billion (approx. US10.3 million) for the containment system per ship. Korean shipbuilders mostly used the technology developed by the French LNG containment specialist GTT.

DSME claims the newly developed containment system has an advantage over the existing technology in quality and stability.

The shipbuilder has already secured general approvals for the design of its DSC16 LNG containment system from a number of classification societies.

The containment system also meets the International Maritime Organization and International Gas Code requirements. Currently, it is awaiting approval from the United States Coast Guard.

The company hinted that Shell could be the major customer of the LNG containment system.

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.
