How LNG Virtual Pipeline Solutions Are Bringing Natural Gas Power to Off Grid Locations

LNG virtual pipeline is the term used to describe the transport of LNG from its source, which can be an import terminal, distribution hub or liquefaction plant, to point of use. It is a flexible solution catering for medium sized companies looking to switch to natural gas from diesel, LPG or other fuel, right through to much larger facilities, such as gas fired power stations. It’s also a proven solution for enterprises connected to the grid but looking to supplement insufficient or unreliable pipeline capacity for peak-shaving, to meet additional load and seasonal variations and to prevent curtailment by providing emergency fuel back-up during outages.

An LNG Fuelled Transition to Electric Transport

As the world decisively enters the energy transition, oil and gas companies are asking can liquefied natural gas (LNG) bridge the gap to the future?      The electrification of transport, paired with autonomous vehicle technology, has the potential to disrupt oil demand. However, the implications for LNG are not as clear. While an increase in demand for electricity may be a positive for LNG in the short to medium term, there are many risks on the horizon.     The transition to an electrified future will not happen overnight, but the LNG industry must get in the driver’s seat in order to remain relevant and ensure that renewable energy solutions do not overtake the golden age of gas before it even gets going.

Sector Coupling to Support the Transition of the Energy System by Usage of Gas Infrastructure

To reach its own climate protection goals, Germany’s CO2-footprint in power generation must decrease. However, the heating sector must contribute to decarbonisation as well. This can theoretically be done by converting electricity from renewables into heat (‘sector coupling’).  

The paper shows in different scenarios up to what extent conventional energy carriers could be replaced in future and proves that the gas infrastructure will remain indispensable. 

In addition a system solution for storage of electricity based on ‘power to gas’ reaching highest utilization rates is presented.

Economic & Design Considerations for Efficient LNG Liquefaction Turndown

Most LNG projects begin with production efficiency and turndown targets.  While production efficiency has received much attention, turndown has received little.  The historical minimum production efficiency for LNG liquefaction is ~93%.   Following proven higher production efficiencies, some recent LNG projects raised minimum production efficiency requirements to 94% or higher.  Yet, turndown requirements have remained at 35%.  Though the advantages of higher production efficiencies have been recognized, the advantages of turndown have been largely overlooked.  Further, while turndown has received little attention, thermal efficiency during turndown has received even less.  This paper will explore some of the advantages associated with turndown.

Project Charlie: Continuous Learning and Delivery in Times of Change

In December 2014, the Shell operated QGC JV produced the first LNG from its world-first Coal Bed Methane to LNG development.  Across the initial construction phase, continuous improvement delivered material improvements across the 2,000 wells and 19 compression facilities being built.  Twelve months earlier during the height of the initial construction, work commenced on Project Charlie, the venture’s first major greenfield backfill project.  Despite comprising nearly 1,000 square kilometres of high-quality shallow coal acreage and benefiting from the improvements being delivered in the initial development, the rapid decline in oil prices meant that Project Charlie was not economic.   This presentation will share how continuous improvement, innovative thinking and a relentless focus on delivery through every stage of the project enabled Project Charlie to be delivered ahead of schedule and for less than half of its original estimate.

4D Gravity and Seafloor Subsidence Surveys for Cost-Effective Monitoring of Offshore Gas Reservoirs

Caprock integrity and induced seismicity are matters of is a concern in offshore projects involving injection of fluids in geological formations. The challenge arises from the difficulty in predicting integrity issues and fault reactivation based on existing data, and many examples of failure exist from around the world.  The application of focused seismic monitoring systems can reduce the risk significantly and provide information injection plume as well as real-time information on fracturing and fault reactivation.  The presentation will show how  passive seismic techniques have been used to detect fracturing and fault reactivation in time for preventive actions.

Design Considerations for Gas Pretreatment at an LNG Liquefaction Facility

Design Considerations for Gas Pretreatment at an LNG Liquefaction Facility    This paper will cover specific challenges facing U.S. pipeline gas and provide examples of the solutions used to mitigate those challenges at an LNG liquefaction terminal. Challenges include a high concentration of O2 in the feed gas, which oxidizes methane in the dehydration regeneration cycle, forming water, resulting in poor dehydration bed regeneration and icing up the liquefaction equipment. This paper will also cover the challenges of high NGL quantities in U.S. pipeline gas and their impacts on plant design, processing equipment and CAPEX.

Operating Beyond Compliance - How Does a Vessel's Age Affect Their Risk & Environmental Profile?

With safety and environmental regulations now imposed upon the maritime industry’s work force, one may wonder at the need for voluntary enhancement of safety and sustainability standards.    Efficiency is not the only opportunity cost, with more than one billion tonnes of CO2 emitted by shipping each year. In addition, the increased transparency demanded of maritime supply chains means that the decision to ignore available reporting and insights will give others a competitive advantage.    David will discuss what these insights tell us about the risk and sustainability of the world’s tanker fleet, and more specifically the LNG and LPG fleet.

The Importance of Accurate Methane Emission Measurement in the Supply Chain of Gas

Nowadays it is well known that Methane is a critically important greenhouse gas. This paper discusses and compares different methods for leak detection and emission reduction. EPA Method 21, which is a worldwide recognized method for fugitive emission measurement, provides advantages, but it also has its limitations. Suggestions to overcome these limitations are discussed. This paper also compares measurement techniques. What are the latest technologies and developments and how do they relate to each other? Finally the paper discusses different emission sources. By means of case studies and benchmarks it is demonstrated how these losses are identified and what the impact is on a yearly basis.

Knowledge Loss: Evaluating and Controlling the Risk Associated with Knowledge Held by People About Assets or From Projects

Across the global gas industry organisations are facing the risk of knowledge loss, being the unintended consequences of mergers and acquisitions, industry contractions and a reliance on smaller numbers of ‘lone experts’. Drawing on our experience internally and some client case studies including onshore gas distribution pipeline knowledge, this paper will explore DNV GL’s approach to the challenge and propose lessons for the industry. These range from using a robust approach to identify where knowledge risks might lie, creating a plan to control those risks to embedding knowledge risk management into the management system

Hurry Up and Wait! When is the Right Time to Think About Social Licence?

Trying to rush meaningful engagement at the last moment is not successful and does not set the foundation for a long and trusting relationship with communities.  Relationships take time – and as we know: Time is Money.  Creating successful relationships requires early commitment from proponents and a systematic, frequent approach to consultation and engagement.  Proponents understand that to create successful project outcomes, early concept and front-end engineering is necessary to reduce the technical risks and focus on feasible alternatives.  Maybe it is time that a similar systematic approach is applied when it comes to community engagement and relationship building?

LNG Storage Under Severe Earthquake: Seismic Isolation Systems for LNG Tanks

The location of large above-ground LNG storage tanks in zones with high seismic risk implies formidable engineering challenges. Most of these huge and cryogenic structures have natural frequencies in the range of resonance with ground motions. In order to enhance the performance reliability and safety, base isolation devices like High Damping Rubber Bearings (HDRB) or Friction Pendulum Bearings (FPB) are increasingly required. 

As a case of study, a 175,000 m3 capacity LNG Tank in Mejillones (Chile), successfully carried out by Tecnicas Reunidas as sole EPC contractor, is here presented.

Reimagining Financing for LNG Projects

LNG financing has traditionally been underpinned by a combination of (1) long term contracts, (2) full volume offtake and (3) investment-grade LNG buyers. However, the commercial structures for the new LNG projects are now moving away from these elements while the financing structures have remained rooted in past leading to lack of adequate financing.  

This paper provides a banker’s view on how the LNG financing structures could adapt to the new commercial realities and in what ways could each stakeholder (developers, off-takers and lenders) contribute towards risk reallocation in order to achieve bankable LNG financings.

Insertion Smaller Conduit & Mini Horizontal Directional Drilling: An Alternative to LNG Tank Bottom Heater Repairment Method

Arun LNG bottom tank heater was being revitalized for LNG Hub Terminal. A common method of repair tank heater is an open cut method, which required 1 year duration and yet high cost. Pertamina demonstrates that inserting smaller 316 SS tubing into existing conduit and replacing existing conduit using mini Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) technique were successful method to revitalize a 42 years old LNG bottom tank heater. Work productivity for inserting new conduit is 87.11 m/day, while for mini HDD is 3,86 m/day. This method required shorter project duration, lead to less cost compared to open cut methodology.

Mega Gas Pipeline Projects in a World Awash with LNG: The Case of the Southern Gas Corridor

At a time when LNG is increasingly available from multiple sources around the globe, are mega natural gas pipeline supply projects still needed or viable? The paper answers affirmatively, pointing to several gas supply challenges that LNG supplies do not address. These factors include geographic constraints and  price considerations.  The Southern Gas Corridor is one of the largest and most expensive gas supply projects built to date. The project has leveraged the ability to access geographically challenged regions,  and those  in need of improved security of supply. The paper discusses lessons learned from the project in the current commercial and geopolitical environment.

Operational Performance Compared to Design Expectations for Parallel Refrigerant Compressors at PNG LNG

Aeroderivative turbines provide a robust, reliable means of driving compressors in LNG plants utilizing the Air Products (APCI) propane/mixed refrigerant (C3/MR) process. The complex control schemes necessary for operating parallel refrigeration compressor strings can be successfully designed using detailed dynamic simulations and reliably operated with extensive training, ongoing support from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). The project took advantage of the benefits offered by using aeroderivative gas turbines in a parallel configuration versus heavy duty gas turbines. Each LNG train would experience fewer shutdowns and restarts following only one compressor tripping offline, resulting in lower flare volumes, fewer thermal stress cycles on the main cryogenic heat exchanger (MCHE), faster ramp-up time to full production.

New Level of Ecological & Economic Solutions by Use of LNG & VOC as Fuel

New shuttle tanker concept developed by TEEKAY in close cooperation with Wärtsilä with use of high quality equipment and systems in new and innovative ways. VOC recovery plant is installed to avoid harmful CO2 emission from cargo tanks resulting in yearly reduction of 42% of CO2eq. or equal to 22 000 petrol cars. With LNG as primary fuel, VOC will be mixed with LNG and used as valuable fuel for the engines. New concept represents an absolute game-changer by enabling shuttle tanker to utilize its own waste gas rather than releasing it to atmosphere.

LNG Contract Valuation and Hedging in a More Dynamic Market and their Application in Both Portfolio Optimisation and Arbitration

The last few years have seen significant changes in how the LNG market operates, with more volume contracted on a shorter-term or spot basis and with increased flexibility. With this changing market comes both new opportunities and risks. The presentation examines the impact of these changes on contract pricing, hedging and optimization strategies and discusses whether additional adjustments should be made for counterparty and funding risks, as seen in other markets. We conclude with how these changes can be used in determining whether your contracts are at fair market value and how this determination could be used in arbitration proceedings.

Ambient conditions have a significant impact on the performance of gas turbines used to drive refrigeration compressors for LNG liquefaction. One way for operators to eliminate this issue and stabilize LNG production is with turbine inlet air chilling (TIAC), which maintains a constant inlet air temperature. This presentation examines the benefits of turbine cooling technology highlighted by examples from our recent project at Cheniere Energy’s Corpus Christi Liquefaction facility.

Call On LNG as China Gas Consumption Returns to Double-Digit Growth

Following a severe slowdown in 2015, a difficult recovery in 2016, China’s gas consumption returned to a double-digit growth in 2017.   In and out of China, the most frequently asked question we receive as a China- and gas-focused consultancy is how long this will last. We forecast that China’s apparent gas consumption will carry on the growth momentum in 2018.  The year will witness slight improvement in supply and infrastructure, though winter supply will remain tight in North and East China.  In the mid- to long-term, China gas consumption will rise to 310 bcm in 2020 and 500 bcm in 2030.  The growth pace for domestic production cannot catch up with demand growth.  Incremental piped imports from Central Asia and Russia will be critical important but concern over supply security won’t be easily eased.  Call on imported LNG is forecasted to be at least 58 mmtpa by 2020 and 87 mmtpa LNG by 2030.

New Era: Regional LNG Hub Development in Thailand

Thailand is a country that imports energy and mainly rely on natural gas. PTT Public Company Limited (“PTT”), the National Oil Company of Thailand, plans to pursue the development of an LNG hub in Thailand. One of key competitive advantages is growing gas demand, estimated to surpass 20 MTPA by 2030. Moreover, Thailand is located in close proximity to a number of emerging gas markets. PTT is currently in the evaluation process of the key requirements to facilitate and enable success of the LNG hub.  In this paper, PTT shall provide pointed updates on several initiatives undertaken, which include TPA/regulatory analysis and review, LNG hub services and unbundling, and potential financial/fiscal inducements.

Dual Functioning for Simultaneous Import / Export Operations at the Cove Point LNG Terminal

The 5.25 mtpa Cove Point LNG facility simultaneously functioned as an import terminal while undergoing construction to build the export terminal. This was achieved through the management of boil-off-gas (BOG) by balancing the BOG generation with the fuel gas demand. We also focused on balancing the power requirements as well as the utilization of pipeline for bi-directional gas management. With an emphasis on implementing SIS strategies, including the resulting ESD actions and managing utilities through appropriate layers of protection, simultaneous operations were implemented safely throughout the facility.

Behavioural Risks Associated with Contracts

For this presentation, the term “Behavioural Risk” is used to describe the behaviours that are driven by contract types which are often opposing when viewed from both the client and contractor perspective. 

Without the lens of behavioural risk, the commercial mitigations for both fixed price and reimbursable contract types often fail to address client / contractor actions which can re-assign commercial risk from one party to the other. 

Through the use of multiple case studies, this presentation explores behavioural risk in an attempt to understand how we can better assign contract type for the successful execution of projects.

Tools for Preventing the Delay of Future Project (Managing Workforce Locations & Improvement of Safety Awareness)

One of the major obstacles the EPC companies are facing is the making of a feasible catch-up plan that can mobilize sufficient additional manpower in the event of project delay. The problem lies in the construction inaccurate reports for productivity and actual manpower work at site. To overcome this obstacle the authors has developed a data logging system that can acquire accurate workforce location data. Using this system, project team can obtain their own accurate workforce data. In this results, contractor will accumulate and analyze real-time data through this system.
