Addressing the oil and gas industry’s 10 most business-critical challenges

Floating Liquefied Natural Gas are water based LNG operations employing technologies designed to enable the development of offshore natural gas resources. 

FLNG is an idea born in expansive times. Energy came at a premium, and consumers were willing to pay extremely high prices for LNG. In recent years, however, the global market has become much more cautious in investing in major projects and energy prices have declined. In an environment where investment decisions are made more carefully, where does this leave the role of FLNG in the wider LNG industry?

In an entertaining and provocative presentation, Rudolf Huber, Econgas’ Head of Business Development considers this fundamental question, and addresses the most pressing challenges facing the industry today. 

  • Is the logic behind FLNG sound and can we still build a compelling business case for FLNG?
  • What are the primary drivers for those companies currently investing in FLNG projects?
  • Can FLNG be effectively used to commercialize associated gas as well as stranded gas?
  • Can technology which is only proven in an onshore environment be relied upon offshore?
  • How can weather risk be managed to successfully and economically produce FLNG?
  • What energy price is required to ensure the economic proposition makes business sense?
  • How can we convince investors in a cautious market that the returns are worthwhile?
  • What conditions need to be in place for FLNG to really take off?
  • What will the shape of the FLNG market look like in the future?
  • Which projects will be advanced, which will fail, and what criteria will determine success?
