Hyundai Heavy Develops its own FLNG Model

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) has emerged as an increasingly important clean energy source Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) has emerged as an increasingly important clean energy source, particularly following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan and triggered one of the world's worst nuclear disasters.With the increasing demand for LNG, it has become more attractive to oil and gas majors to develop "stranded gas" in offshore fields. With this in mind, Korea's Hyundai Heavy Industries, working with German industrial gas and engineering firm Linde AG, has completed developing its own Hyundai FLNG (Floating Liquefied Natural Gas Plant) concept.The FLNG concept is a special floating vessel that can produce natural gas, liquefy it, and offload it directly to an LNG carrier. HHI conducted risk and safety evaluations of the FLNG and received approval-in-principle from classification society DNV. HHI says the Hyundai FLNG takes 25% less time to build compared to the onshore liquefaction and storage plant, making it an attractive option for oil majors and global shipping companies looking to commercialize stranded gas in offshore fields.The Hyundai FLNG has an annual production capacity of 2.5 million tons of LNG and can store about 193,800 m3 LNG with its compact size of ...

EU allows Maritime Pollution until 2050

Of all industries in the EU economy the transport sector is the only one to have steadily increased its Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions since the reference year of 1990. Transport comprises of three modes, inland (road, rail and waterways), sea and air. Emissions from inland transport (mainly road) are the most important followed by maritime while aviation comes third. The greatest share of CO2 reductions has been achieved by land based emissions sources such as industrial plants and road transport. Regarding the maritime sector, it has to be said that historically it has not been addressed properly, if at all, as compared to all other transport modes. Such a privileged lack of regulation implies that currently, the cost of reducing emissions from ships would be much lower than for same results from land-based polluters. The shipping industry claims that by improving marine fuel oil quality and by reducing the sulphur content, as agreed in the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) under the MARPOL Convention, it will contribute to CO2 emissions reduction. This is incorrect and misleading. Improved marine fuel quality is totally unrelated to CO2 emissions. A better and cleaner fuel does not reduce CO2 emissions responsible for the global warming ...
