New LNG transfer system wins approval of global energy major

Fendercare Marine has conducted ship-to-ship (STS) transfers of liquified natural gas (LNG) for one of the global leading energy companies.  

The team used its significant experience and a new LNG transfer system to complete a series of three successful LNG STS transfers back-to-back off the coast of Malaysia.  

Recognising that LNG would form a key component of the energy mix for the transition to a low carbon future and to support predicted growing global demand for LNG STS operations, Fendercare Marine had invested in a market-leading LNG transfer system earlier in the year (2021).  

The investment paid off, and thanks to the efficiency and professionalism of all parties involved, the operations were a success. As Fendercare has the largest global network of locations suitable for LNG STS transfers the expectation is that demand for similar operations will build. 

Conducting LNG STS operations is highly complex, as the vessels are pressurised, LNG is transferred at approximately minus 161 degrees Celsius and evaporation of the LNG (known as ‘boil off gas’) must be carefully managed.  But the team conducted all the pre-operation due diligence, including risk assessments, dynamic mooring studies and compatibility assessments.  

‘As world leaders, we pride ourselves on providing solutions to our customers and this is another fantastic example,’ says Elizabeth Skinner, Fendercare managing director, ‘We look forward to continually supporting the growth of the LNG market and the transition to cleaner fuels and deliver many more successful LNG STS transfers to our customers.’
