SINGAPOREKeppel Shipyard is finalizing contracts with Golar LNG subsidiary Golar Gimi to convert a second Moss LNG carrier, the GIMI, into a floating liquefaction vessel (FLNGV).

In July, Golar Hilli Corp. contracted Keppel Shipyard to perform the first-ever conversion of a Moss LNG carrier, theHILLI, into an FLNGV, with an option for two similar units.

Work scope for the secondvessel will likely be similar. Keppel Shipyard will be responsible for design, detailed engineering and procurement of the marine systems, and all conversion-related construction services.

The company will probably engage Black & Veatch to provide design, procurement, and commissioning support services for the topsides and liquefaction process, using Black & Veatch’s established PRICO technology for the liquefaction process.
