London-headquartered engineer Babcock said it has been contracted to supply its ecoSMRT LNG reliquefaction technology to four liquefied natural gas carriers on order at Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan, South Korea. 

The technology enables LNG carriers to operate with higher liquefaction capacity compared to the mixed refrigerant or nitrogen expansion systems, Babcock said on Tuesday.

The technology has been developed between HHI and Babcock, and requires only one compressor, enabling lower power consumption, which in turn results in lower costs and maintenance requirements.

The South Korean shipbuilder has completed its test facility for the technology at its headquarters in Ulsan.

The company said it has acquired all the safety approvals from the South Korean Gas Safety Corporation for the technology that enables 100 percent reliquefaction of the gas that evaporates from LNG carrier tanks.

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.
