LNG jetty

Our LNG expertise explained

We cover project management, front end engineering design (FEED), detailed design, construction, and operation, supporting you at every stage.

The siting of LNG terminals for safe and efficient operations is a critical issue if hazards and environmental impacts are to be effectively managed and minimised. BMT’s services support clients at every stage, covering project management, front end engineering design (FEED), detailed design, construction and operation. BMT has an extensive track record in delivering high-value solutions for LNG transport operations, covering import/export terminals, ship to ship operations and small scale LNG.

Market and economic assessment

One of the challenges facing the LNG sector is transporting gas from stranded gas fields to liquefaction terminals and then onward to the market.  We assess liquefaction and regasification options, reviewing traffic flows and planning the optimum routes and size of carriers employed, and competitive analysis of other terminals in the region.

We can further assist with guidance of LNG sale and purchase agreements and time charter party agreements for FSU and FSRU options and manage the tender and contract management process for all the terminal engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning works.

Marine facilities and master planning

We prepare long, medium, and short-term plans for LNG terminals.  Our master plans and detailed project reports encompass all aspects of the development and your phasing – including considerations of liquefaction and regasification options and the impact these options will have on the siting and arrangement of new terminals.

We prepare front-end engineering designs (FEED) that are robust and flexible enough to ensure that the project's next stage proceeds smoothly.  Our experience covers many LNG solutions, ranging from land-based terminals to FSU and FSRU options (downstream) and floating liquefaction options (upstream).

From site selection to rigorous feasibility studies and project management, we provide an extensive portfolio of services to guide you through the early planning stages of LNG facilities, including an overall project management service, from initial feasibility through to construction and commissioning.

Floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG)

FLNG has become essential for developing gas reserves in locations where connection to shore facilities is not viable.

Our wealth of knowledge in offshore oil and gas gives us a unique capacity to assess risk and guide actions to meet the specific challenges of the design and operation of an FLNG facility offshore.

We provide programme specific advice to increase confidence in long term programme delivery.

Minimum safety distance analysis

We provide high-level screening studies of potential major accident scenarios for loss of containment at LNG terminals to define safety distances, considering residential areas, port activities, industrial areas and or other activities in the neighbourhood.

We assess the effects of LNG operations on vessel and port operations and advise introducing additional traffic management measures to mitigate navigational risks, such as changes to vessel traffic and traffic management schemes.
