LNG AND FSRU Operation

Scope and Objective

The Scope and objectives of “ The FSRU Operation course (FSRU) ” is to provide specialized and advanced level of training to management and operation level personnel with immediate responsibility for loading, discharging, care or handling of FSRU (Floating Storage Regasification Units).

This course is highly customized to meet and then exceed the industry training requirements for working in LNG industry. It also focuses on the relation between human attitude and a safe and efficient operation of FSRUs.

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas (predominantly methane, CH4, with some mixture of ethane, C2H6) that has been cooled down to liquid form for ease and safety of non-pressurized storage or transport. It takes up about 1/600th the volume of natural gas in the gaseous state (at standard conditions for temperature and pressure).

It is odorless, colorless, non-toxic and non-corrosive. Hazards include flammability after vaporization into a gaseous state, freezing and asphyxia.

The liquefaction process involves removal of certain components, such as dust, acid gases, helium, water, and heavy hydrocarbons, which could cause difficulty downstream.

The natural gas is then condensed into a liquid at close to atmospheric pressure by cooling it to approximately −162 °C (−260 °F); maximum transport pressure is set at around 25 kPa (4 psi).

A Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) is a vital component required while transiting and transferring Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) through the oceanic channels. Therefore, FSRU can be termed as a special type of ship used for LNG transfer.

As viable and exceedingly environment-friendly LNG is as a fuel component, the fact remains that transporting the same isn’t that easy. Any slight callousness could result in loss of precious lives and precious fuel, not to mention the further degradation of the oceanic eco-system.

” The FSRU Operation course” is designed as per industry requirement and covers different aspects of LNG production and supply chain, Regulatory Frame works, Properties of LNG , Thermodynamics, Design & Construction of Cargo Containment System, Propulsion Systems including steam, DFDE etc, Cryogenic pumps, heaters, vaporisers, Regassification Plant, safety checks, shore storage, cargo transfer system, ship-shore interface and compatibility process, ESD etc.
