“FLNG offers a route to greater flexibility and increased access to natural gas resources far from shore. FLNG also enhances our ability to operate responsibly in environmentally sensitive areas. Overall, this technology increases the rate at which we can expect to get LNG into the world’s energy-hungry markets. We need to develop and we need to have the courage to deploy

technologies that will enable us to unlock new resources and ensure continued reliability and efficiency in existing and planned LNG operations.” - Jon Chadwick, Vice president of Shell Gas & Power’s Asia operations

In Asia Pacific area alone, annual LNG demand is expected to double from 100 million tones to almost 200 million tones a year by 2015. In recent years, the floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) business has rapidly grown and is now at the forefront of offshore industry focus. Market circumstances and environmental circumstances has indicated that the time is right for the industry to respond with the first viable FLNG projects to meet a short supply of LNG resulting from the increase in demand, delays in completing current LNG projects and the postponement of authorization of new onshore LNG plants.

Commercializing FLNG Asia 2009, Asia Pacific’s premier FLNG conference is returning in July. The event promises to address key strategy, commercial and technical challenges faced in the implementation of FLNG projects. In addition, key industry experts will provide you with practical solutions and insights on how you can turn some of the world’s most remote gas reserves into an economically feasible option. Don’t miss it!

Four major conference themes:

  • Assessing the commercial viability and long-term sustainability of FLNG projects
  • Risk and cost minimization in FLNG projects to achieve maximum ROI
  • Examination of FLNG technical components and design processes to ensure operational excellence

Project financing FLNG is an extremely new concept for financiers. In today’s economic climate, it makes raising funds for these capital-intensive projects even harder for project owners. Apart from the technical and commercial uncertainties surrounding FLNG projects, contractual elements and procedures are different for FLNG from the usual offshore projects. Nonetheless, project cash flows are the life of any project financing deal and it is as critical that FLNG project contracts are being negotiated and drafted appropriately.

Is there still hope? The answer is Yes! We have put together a full day agenda that will feature financiers, advisors and project financing lawyers to provide you with the latest insights and solutions on how you can finance and establish contracts for your FLNG projects. Not only will you gain valuable advice on the best strategy to fund your project through case-studies analysis, you will also be able to efficiently conduct risk analysis to ensure successful FLNG project implementation. Mark the date into your calendar now!
