Floating & Offshore LNG
Offshore projects require many design considerations to be integrated into the development process, making strong offshore experience a vital success factor. WorleyParsons’ offshore heritage, coupled with our LNG experience, puts us at the forefront of developments in floating and offshore LNG. We bring experience and knowledge of all major LNG technologies to offer customers innovative solutions in this new market.
WorleyParsons has executed more than 50% of the worldwide nearshore regasification projects (planned and in operation), making us the world leader as an independent engineering service provider to the FSRU and nearshore regasification market.
Mid- and small-scale LNG plants are becoming increasingly prevalent in the industry and are particularly important for monetizing stranded gas, debottlenecking existing facilities and meeting the needs of the growing transport fuel market. WorleyParsons has a variety of experience in these smaller scale LNG projects including both midsize (<2 mtpa) and small (<0.25 mtpa) facilities and is expanding its role in the development of these small-scale LNG concepts through a modular design approach.
Our experience in floating production and offloading systems—combined with our expertise in pipelines, storage, loading and regasification— provide for an exceptional terminal designs and construction management team. WorleyParsons’ experience is supplemented by a global strategic alliance with SOFREGAZ, a worldwide leader in LNG regasification.
The implementation of small-scale LNG and hub-and-spoke models are part of our Select offering. We have developed a novel offshore regasification terminal based on a steel barge gravity foundation design with small LNG storage suitable for shallow water depth of up to 15 meters.

Select LNG WorleyParsons’ Select business line is focused on project viability assessment and development. Our specialists support strategic decision making on critical front-end planning issues to meet our customers’ ultimate business objectives. These services comprise comprehensive pre-feasibility, feasibility and pre-FEED studies for all projects to overcome challenges, mitigate risk and enhance project outcomes. The team brings in-depth cross-industry experience to provide technical analysis and decision support during the initial stages of an LNG project, securing the greatest value over the project lifecycle. Additionally, our Select processes and tools quantify risk and commercial value, enabling our customers to make datadriven decisions with confidence. WorleyParsons is Technology-Neutral WorleyParsons is capable of working with all technologies including Optimized Cascade to the end of pre-FEED and technology selection. As LNG projects become more complex and demanding, selection of the right technology becomes ever more important. WorleyParsons has adopted a technologyneutral position in LNG to allow us to work with our customers to independently evaluate and choose the most appropriate technologies. Select is comprised of concept strategy specialists that develop business models and financial analysis prior to FEED. This conceptual review includes the neutral evaluation of technologies, which ensures that the final recommended solution maximizes investment return and underlying confidence.
WorleyParsons’ tools provide decision support based on the objective outcomes of case evaluations. Concept evaluation is supported by the EcoNomicsTM DELT∆ tool, one of WorleyParsons’ many proprietary data analysis programs, which assigns quantitative values to risks associated with environmental, regulatory and social issues that can often impede project progress. This internally-developed program simplifies and expedites the assessment of complex situations and enables fact-based decision making in a timely manner. This approach compares multiple technical and non-technical criteria and assists customers in identifying and selecting the most robust and sustainable project options for the long-term.

Singapore LNG Terminal
CUSTOMER: POWERGAS LOCATION: SINGAPORE
CUSTOMER: KM LNG OPERATING GENERAL PARTNERSHIP LOCATION: CANADA
WorleyParsons was retained by KM LNG (a joint venture between Apache Canada Ltd. and Kitimat LNG, Inc.) to provide Owner’s Engineer and project management consulting services for the development of an LNG export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia. The facility will have an initial capacity of 5 mtpa with potential expansion to 10 mtpa or more. WorleyParsons is responsible for managing the design of the 287 kV powerline and 36-inch pipeline from Kitimat to the project site, and is currently reviewing the plant process engineering deliverables from the FEED contractor. WorleyParsons is also providing on-site construction management of the contractors carrying out extensive earthworks to level the site in advance of the award to an EPC contractor. Services include construction supervision, contract administration, and budget and schedule control.
WorleyParsons, in joint venture, was selected by Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea to provide field-specific FEED services for Flex LNG’s fixed floating LNG production project for InterOil Corporation and Pacific LNG Operations for use in Papua New Guinea. The FEED scope included execution of the design, engineering and procurement of the topside facilities for the FLNG production project with an LNG production capacity of 2 mtpa.
To increase the security of Singapore’s domestic gas supply, PowerGas is constructing the first LNG regasification terminal on Jurong Island. WorleyParsons is providing the basis of design and FEED, including the development of the EPC contractor tender documents and subsequent evaluation and recommendations. WorleyParsons’ expertise in hydrocarbons, power and infrastructure—coupled with a 20 year heritage in Singapore— and a global process capability are critical to the success of this important project.
