International compressor supplier Tamrotor Marine Compressors (TMC) has been contacted by Golar LNG to supply the compressed air system to the Hilli FLNG vessel.
TMC’s scope of work includes manufacturing and delivery of seven 365 kW air compressors to be installed on board the Hilli FLNG vessel which will operate offshore Cameroon, the company said, without disclosing the contract value.
The system will allow Golar LNG to reduce energy costs as well as harmful emissions, Oslo-based TMC said in its statement on Tuesday.
FLNG Hilli, a 125,000-cbm liquefied natural gas carrier being converted to the floating liquefaction unit at Singapore’s Keppel Shipyard, is scheduled to commence operations at the Kribi field offshore Cameroon later this year.
Golar LNG will provide liquefaction, storage, and off-loading services under a tolling agreement to Cameroon’s state-owned oil and gas company Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures and Perenco Cameroon as upstream joint venture partners.
It is anticipated that the allocated reserves will be produced at a rate of 1.2 million tons of LNG per annum, over an approximate eight-year period.
