Wärtsilä supplied a liquefied natural gas regasification system for the Nusantara Regas Satu FSRU, Indonesia's first LNG regasification terminal.
The West Java FSRU receives LNG from offloading LNG carriers, and the Wärtsilä Hamworthy LNG regasification systems provide gas send-out through pipelines to shore.
The project saw the existing LNG carrier Khannur converted into a floating terminal that can be situated either offshore, or at a purpose-built jetty/pier.
As Wärtsilä Hamworthy’s technology is based on an intermediate closed propane loop, using seawater as the heating medium for vaporising LNG, the equipment has a high level of efficiency. It therefore requires less fuel and operating costs than steam-based systems to regasify the LNG.
In total Wärtsilä has delivered 6 similar systems to Golar LNG, and another 4 are under construction. The liquefied natural gas regasification system for the West Java FSRU Project is similar in design to the latest of these projects: the LNG carrier Golar Freeze which was converted into an FRSU, chartered to Dubai Supply Authority and Shell and moored permanently alongside a purpose-built jetty within Jebel Ali port.
