In-house regasification system developed by SHI

Tuesday, 03 Oct 2017

South Korean yard Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) said it has developed its own liquid natural gas (LNG) regasification system for its design of LNG floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).

The new LNG regasification system, called S-Regas (GI), uses glycol which reduces the risk of corrosion caused by traditional methods of heating LNG directly with seawater, according to Samsung Heavy. Samsung Heavy claims that the new system will help save costs and enhance its quality management. “The new LNG regasification system improves the LNG FSRU’s safety and performance,” Samsung Heavy said. The new system should also make savings on operating costs of the LNG FSRU design.
