WorleyParsons delivers cohesive engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services that consider the complete LNG value chain for facilities worldwide. Our track record in LNG production extends from opportunity evaluation studies and concept/technology selection, through to front-end engineering design (FEED), detailed engineering, procurement and construction management for both greenfield and brownfield LNG developments.
The commercial viability and schedule certainty for any LNG project is heavily influenced by selecting the right project execution approach, liquefaction technology and location. WorleyParsons uniquely combines the experience of our global procurement hubs, including those in Beijing, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, to deliver the best procurement and contracting philosophy and construction methodology for projects.
As the world-wide demand for natural gas imports increases, the technical and regulatory challenges and the scale of the investment required to facilitate successful delivery of LNG projects requires an unbiased partner with a comprehensive understanding of local requirements, the LNG value chain and associated technologies. WorleyParsons understands the demands, scale and integration requirements of the LNG industry. Our experienced teams have played key roles in a variety of LNG terminal and regasification projects including those with novel concepts, such as LNG storage and regasification on the same vessel, regasification on a separate floating facility and side-by-side LNG transfer from an LNG carrier. As LNG projects become more complex and demanding, selection of the right technology becomes ever more important. WorleyParsons has adopted a technology-neutral position in LNG to allow us to work with our customers to independently evaluate and choose the most appropriate technologies. We are capable of working with all technologies including Optimized Cascade to the end of pre-FEED and technology selection.
The combination of remote terminal locations, shortage of local skilled labor, construction access, logistics challenges and opportunities for efficient global procurement all support a modularization approach to LNG terminal delivery. WorleyParsons is a recognized global leader in the modularization of process plants, with experience spanning from the North Slope of Alaska to the Caspian region and the remote North West Shelf of Australia.
In conjunction with our joint venture partners, we have used this experience to pioneer LNG plant modularization resulting in the proven reduction of costs, schedule, industrial relations risks and environmental impact. This is particularly applicable to projects with remote site locations and high local labor costs.
WorleyParsons’ LNG activities cover more than 10 countries and span the full lifecycle of asset development. We leverage our experience and the knowledge gained from these projects to provide global resources and expertise to our customers in local project delivery.
- Floating and Offshore LNG
- LNG Regasification
- Mid-to-mini LNG
- Onshore LNG
In the front-end Select phases of a project, WorleyParsons identifies and evaluates project options that consider the entire lifecycle of an asset. Our focus on strategic viability and long-term business value provides customers with options that optimize outcomes and minimize both technical and non-technical risk. Our technology-neutral approach and extensive experience in marinization and modularization uniquely position our customers for the optimal design and development of their LNG and FLNG projects.
In Deliver, our global footprint enables us to employ expertise and knowledge in EPCM from around the world. Our customers have access to our global best practices and deep local knowledge, while also benefitting from our workshare system that leverages our high-value project delivery centers to reduce costs and increase project outcome certainty. This proven methodology realizes the benefits of multi-office execution, delivering the strongest team, best experience and most value to our customers’ projects.
In the relationship-based Improve phase, our customers benefit from our unique alliances that employ integrated execution teams and deliver considerable cost and schedule savings compared to conventional project execution methods. We provide our customers with a single source for the resources and technology needed to deliver their sustaining capital programs and meet the complex requirements of the operating facility.
