‘No Drydock….Safely’

FLNG Asset Challenges

FLNG, or Floating Liquefied Natural Gas, assets are complex, costly, and are designed for long operational lives on station without having to drydock. Ensuring safe operations and asset integrity compliance whilst avoiding unplanned drydocking poses challenges for FLNG Operators.

The Solution to FLNG Integrity

EM&I’s unparalleled marine, offshore, and LNG experience has resulted in a unique range of innovative services designed to keep FLNG assets on station and in production, safely, for extended periods.

These services focus on ensuring that critical equipment remains fit-for-service and compliant with Class, regulator, and corporate requirements.

Innovative methodologies and tools enable us to provide NoMan® remote inspection technology for the containment and pump towers and our HullGuard® ICCP system protects the external hull without divers or ROVs.

The ODIN® system enables compliant inspections of the underwater hull, moorings, and critical isolation valves without diver intervention, and our RBI-based Ex Equipment inspection systems minimises costs and equipment strip down.

PSI™ is EM&I’s cost efficient RBI integrity service for pressure systems and includes BCT (Backscatter Computed Tomography), which is our unique methodology for managing CUI and for non-intrusive inspections of piping and vessels.
