A confidential client identified a niche opportunity to export gas from a WA gas plant to proximal Asian and Eastern Australia markets using LNG Isotainers. The aim was to deliver gas via a “Virtual Pipeline” to target markets utilising sea, road and/or rail transportation, and creating value by utilising existing infrastructure.
Efficiently and economically export small volumes of LNG from Western Australia’s gas rich regions to Asian and Eastern Australia markets.
BE&R identified and developed concepts for the surface facilities and logistics infrastructure required to economically capture, process, transport and distribute small scale LNG to the specified locations.
BE&R scope included development of high-level specifications for integrated small scale liquefaction facilities at the specified locations, determination of the type of technology required, development of a preliminary layout of the facilities, development of a shipping logistics model, schedules, challenges, risks and opportunities, Class V CAPEX and OPEX estimates.
BE&R delivered the project with detailed insights into shipping LNG via isotainers to Asian and Eastern Australia markets.
The risks and opportunities relative to the different export locations were developed along with the small-scale LNG infrastructure required to deliver the gas through a “Virtual Pipeline”.
