ABS has been selected to class a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) for BOTAS, Turkey’s oil and gas pipeline operator.
“As demand for gas has increased over the last decade, the supply chain has had to adapt and figure out new ways of getting gas to expanding markets,” said ABS Senior Vice President and Chief Business Development Officer, Jamie Smith. “FSRUs, like this one for Turkey, are providing gas distributors and suppliers an efficient and effective solution for getting their product to consumers.”
Planned to be built at Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard, the FSRU will have a 170,000 cbm storage capacity and a 1,000 MMSCFD LNG discharge capacity. The FSRU will be jetty moored off the coast of Turkey and operated by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines. The unit will be classed using the ABS Guide for Building and Classing LNG Regasification Vessels.
Recognising the changing landscape and increased industry focus on gas, ABS launched its Global Gas Solutions team in 2013 to support industry in developing gas-related projects.
