RINA Group says it will deliver concept selection, FEED, support during negotiations with potential shipyards, project management during construction, and support for commissioning for a new floating LNG terminal in South Sumatra, Indonesia.

Italy-based RINA has been appointed by PGAS Solution, a subsidiary of PGN, Indonesia’s largest natural gas distribution company, which will own and operate the FSRU.

The floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) is to serve as an LNG importing hub for PGN in South Sumatra and will have a storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters and a regasification capacity up to 500 mmscfd.

The unit will be installed at Labuhan Maringgai Lampung in a water depth of about 20 m and linked to the shore by a 21 km pipeline, project officials said.

The terminal is intended to come into service in mid-2014.

“RINA has been selected because we can deliver a wide range of engineering and marine competence and proven experience with offshore gas,” said Angelo Lo Nigro, energy development manager for RINA.

“Floating solutions for LNG and CNG exploitation and transportation are a fast-growing area. Our experience gives us a lead in helping utilities to bring projects on stream quickly and safely.”

The appointment by builds on RINA’s recent appointment to deliver the world’s first marine CNG project in Indonesia, and on its experience with offshore LNG worldwide, the company said.
