Natural gas – becoming a world commodity

Shell has signed an agreement for “the design, construction and installation of multiple floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facilities over a period of up to fifteen years”. This is a vote of confidence in the importance of natural gas as a clean fuel. Natural gas is becoming more and more important in transportation.

Shell’s FLNG solution has the potential to place gas liquefaction facilities directly over offshore gas fields, thereby precluding the need for long distance pipelines and extensive onshore infrastructure. This innovative alternative to traditional onshore LNG plants provides a commercially attractive and environmentally sensitive approach for monetization of offshore gas fields

This is an artists conception of an FLNG facility.
