Optimising the Reliability of an LNG Terminal

BMT reviewed the operability and reliability for current and future operations of an LNG terminal in Singapore.


We were commissioned by an LNG terminal owner to review the operability and reliability of its facility in Singapore. The role required that we consider also the compatibility to future plant expansion, to ensure that reliability is maintained in future development phases.

Solution and Benefits

We conducted overseas site visits and interviews with various parties, ranging from process designers to field operators. This was an exercise in the integration of ideas with respect to levels of involvement in the LNG terminal. BMT then carried out a reliability analysis to review the operability of the plant.

We identified significant possible failures that could lead to total service interruption of the plant. Furthermore, we provided recommendations for future tie-in operations in the event of plant uprating.
