AG&P Announces Integrated Plug-and-Play Solutions for LNG Supply Network in Asia

April 5, 2017

AG&P (Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific Company), the global leader of infrastructure solutions, announced two standardized modular products for the LNG supply network that will drive down costs, accelerate schedule and enable last-mile delivery to LNG demand centers scattered across Southeast Asia, South Asia and the Caribbean.

Speaking at Gastech 2017, the company presented designs incorporating standardized equipment to deliver a scalable LNG delivery platform and a fit-for-purpose, onshore modular regasification unit. These plug and play' packages, based on standard solutions, are built in AG&P's dedicated, state-of-the-art, 150-hectare modularization facilities, which helps speed delivery times and significantly reduces the cost of customized engineering and project man-hours while increasing productivity and quality. Cost-effective and built for transportation across the world, AG&P believes these off-the-shelf products have the potential to bolster the small and mid-scale LNG market. Key benefits include:

Scalable LNG delivery platform

  • AG&P has focused on optimizing the storage and marine design to drive cost efficiencies and adoption
  • Selection of shallow draft barge design and conventional vessel hull design allow for fixed cost hull construction over a scalable range, typically:
    • Platform 1: 4,000 to 8,000m³ capacity for shallow water delivery
    • Platform 2: 6,000 to 16,500m³ for open water delivery
    • Utilizes identical hull design and equipment from 6,000, 7,500, 10,000 up to 16,500m³
  • Products utilize existing GTT hull designs specifically configured to optimize membrane tank configuration
  • Geometrical membrane tanks are standardized which reduces re-engineering costs
  • Detailed designs are completed by AGP/GET, integrating standardized equipment/technologies and prefabricated in our manufacturing facilities in Manila, Philippines,
  • All kits, including accommodation fitments and bridge equipment are standardized packages

Onshore modular, standardized regasification unit

  • Modularized and pre-commissioned in our state-of-the-art facilities in the Philippines
  • Each unit consists of:
    • TEMA NJN plate and tube exchanger utilizing indirect glycol/water heat transfer
    • Uses configuration of 125mmscfd process train, typically, in 250mmscfd modularized package
  • Each individual 250mmscfd module consists of:
    • High-pressure pump
    • Tube and shell exchanger
    • Boil-off gas (BOG) recondenser
    • HIPPS
    • Central control room (E-house)
  • Off module equipment or shared utilities consisting of:
    • Glycol water plate exchanger circuit
    • BOG compressor
    • LP booster pumps
  • All equipment is purchased utilizing an in-house approved vendor list
    • Allows competitive pricing based on standard product requiring no re-engineering
    • Enables shorter procurement times based on standard product
  • Typical schedule -12 months ex-works

"While there is increasing preference for small-scale and mid-scale LNG solutions in emerging economies like Indonesia and India, uptake remains slow with few projects underway. Standardization and modular solutions will be the circuit-breaker that will bring projects online, enabling the switch to LNG as a clean and affordable energy source," said Mr. Albert Altura, President AG&P.

"AG&P is combining its modularization capabilities and unique alliances with engineering and technology partners to provide the complete spectrum of infrastructure assets that enable LNG distribution and last-mile delivery. Serving as a single point of contact for customers across the LNG value chain, we deliver a whole terminal and sell tolled gas to power plants, mines, bunker fuel operations, transportation fleets, cold storage and other industrial applications," added Mr. Albert Altura.

AG&P has a long and successful track record of delivering pragmatic solutions for the oil and gas industry with expertise in LNG. It is only one of three companies worldwide to have a global technical and licensing agreement for membrane tank design from the French giant, GTT. In addition, AG&P owns a major stake in GAS Entec, the leading Korea-based engineering firm and has entered a joint venture with Risco Energy Group of Indonesia.
