International Contract Engineering (ICE), the Isle of Man-based ship design company, said it had developed a small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier concept.

The shallow-draft LNG carrier with a cargo capacity of 20,000 cbm had been developed in a cooperation with a major operator of gas ships, according to a statement by ICE.

The concept includes two type C semi-pressurised and fully refrigerated bi-lobe cargo tanks.

With a five-meter draft, the vessel “is designed for both seagoing service and to meet the LNG delivery challenges presented by shallow rivers and restricted harbours,” ICE said.

“The cargo containment system (CCS) facilitates “milk-run” type delivery to a variety of small and medium size terminals, allowing partial loading levels of cargo tanks and atmospheric pressure discharge,” it said.

The LNG carrier concept also features dual-fuel propulsion system designed to operate on boil-off gas (BOG), whilst having the ability to alternatively run the vessel to comply with sulphur emission control area (SECA) restrictions and to manage the amount of BOG during fully laden trips, the company added.

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.
