Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRU)
A Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) is the vital component required while transiting and transferring Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) through the oceanic channels. Thus, FSRU can be termed as a special type of ship which is used for LNG transfer.
As viable and exceedingly environment-friendly LNG is as a fuel component, fact remains that transporting the same isn’t easy. Any slight callousness could result in loss of precious lives and equally precious fuel, not to mention further degradation of the oceanic eco-system.
The fuel though is transported is semi-cooled in a slushy state of -160°, at the required destination, needs to be heated up to its original gaseous state. This reheating needs to be carried out before the gas is pumped into its storage systems. The whole process of freezing and then re-heating the fuel is extremely expensive not to mention time-consuming. The resultant solution to this time-consuming process is the FSRU.
An introduction to Floating Storage and Regasification Units, their applications, and their future.
Patrick Carey graduated with honours from The University of Newcastle upon Tyne’s renowned School of Marine Science and Technology in 2007 with a degree in Marine Engineering, gaining recognition through the Dr. James A. Lisnyk Award for Ship Design Excellence. He has a Certificate in Insurance with the Chartered Insurance Institute (UK).
Patrick joined the Mechanical Completions and Commissioning company, MCCS International, based out of their Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) office. During five years with MCCS, his roles have included Pressure Testing Supervisor, Commissioning Engineer, Planning Engineer and Completions Coordinator on a variety of oil and gas projects including FPSO Construction, Topside Construction and Upgrades, and Onshore LNG Facility Completions and Commissioning throughout the Far East.
In September 2013 Patrick joined Braemar Adjusting’s Singapore team where he has since applied the technical knowledge gained from his years of practical experience in the field in Construction All Risk, Physical Damage and Liability losses among others.
