Aqualis Offshore’s work scope is to provide a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) study for Control and Alarm Monitoring System (CAMS), Emergency Shutdown System (ESDS), and Wireless Telemetry System installed on the 2,200 cubic metre LNG bunkering/transport barge.

The LNG bunkering/transport barge will carry LNG cargo from the port facilities towards LFS (LNG Fuelled Ship) for bunkering. The LNG bunkering barge is built by Conrad Shipyard, Texas, USA, for TOTE.

Aqualis Offshore’s contract value is undisclosed.

“When we set up our Busan office last year, a key objective was to build up a presence that allowed us to support oil industry players that are based in South Korea but who operate internationally. Gas Entec falls into this category. We believe we are a good match and are very pleased to be able to cooperate with them,” says Phil Lenox, director – Asia Pacific, Aqualis Offshore.

GAS Entec specialises in shipbuilding engineering & design and project management of small-mid scale LNG FSRU, LNG bunkering solutions and LNG Carriers. The company is headquartered in Busan, South Korea.

Aqualis Offshore is a specialized marine and offshore engineering consultancy focusing on the shallow and deep-water segments of the offshore oil and gas industry.
