LNG reduces emissions and is future-ready

When it comes to LNG infrastructure, asset optimization, minimizing CAPEX and OPEX, and ensuring compliance, then our experience as owner operators can be invaluable.

Rely on our know-how to deliver the gas infrastructure needed for the future. We manage the development of compressor stations and landing terminals for LNG, as well as safe and economical transportation. 

The source of natural gas reserves and the locations where the gas will be consumed can be many thousands of kilometers apart. We bring our experience to match supply and demand and ensure the safe transportation of natural gas, delivered to where it is needed most. We have outstanding experience in developing gas infrastructure assets, as a developer, engineer and owner operator of international pipeline systems. We have adapted continuously to market, technological, and regulatory changes and employed our knowledge in projects around the world.

Our engineers are leading projects for regasification facilities at LNG terminals at various locations across Europe; including creating the first of its kind import facility with a regasification capacity of 3.75 billion cubic meters. Our latest project with Mitsui O.S.K. Lines is to develop Germany’s first LNG terminal which will be the fastest and most economical way to realise LNG imports directly into Germany.

LNG for transport 

We are always innovating, and we are particularly proud of our work developing LNG as fuel for transport. Through our subsidiary Liqvis, we are planning LNG filling stations filling stations for trucks; the first ones have already been successfully put into operation in Germany and France. This work contributes to reducing emissions in the transport sector – CO2, particulates, NOx, and noise.

Stable pricing and delivery: our LIQVIS partnership

We understand your need for stability in delivery and price. Our partnership with LIQVIS is a key part of our solution. LIQVIS, part of the Uniper family, are reliable and flexible LNG partners offering LNG as a progressive, environmentally friendly and profitable alternative fuel for the transport and logistics sector. They leverage years of expertise gained from partnerships with trucking companies and pilot projects to offer practical solutions to real-world challenges, such as building permanent public LNG filling stations, where two tanks can fuel in parallel. The LIQVIS plant near Berlin is the first filling station site within the framework of the EU’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for Transport program.

Staying ahead of evolving legislation and regulation can be challenging. We optimize the technical interface management, while our experience gives you the confidence to know that we will always adhere to grid codes and regulatory requirements.

Case studies

First-of-its-kind LNG import facility 

We played a key role in a project at a turret-moored Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) to import LNG, installed offshore in the Mediterranean. The project included conversion of an LNG carrier into a floating regasification terminal. The unit has a regasification capacity of 3.75 billion cubic meters per year and a storage capacity of 137,500m³ of LNG. Our experts were part of the project management and owner’s engineering team and were responsible for steering and supervising the EPCIC contractor during construction over a period of several years. The LNG FSRU is now being successfully operated and has received and regasified numerous LNG cargoes.

Development of a greenfield LNG export project 

Our client’s challenge was to develop a greenfield LNG export facility in North America. We were entrusted as the owner’s technical representative and part of the owner’s engineering team, to steer and supervise the engineering contractor during front-end engineering and design. We also delivered a conceptual design for a 400 MW power plant. The project consisted of LNG processing facilities, two 5mtpa liquefaction trains with GT drive, three 230,000m3 LNG storage tanks and marine facilities to load LNG tankers.
