Offloading from Ship Shaped FLNGs
The LNGC is positioned 100-150m from the FLNG during the offloading operation. The thrusters and DP system on the HiLoad LNG will keep the LNGC in position during the operation.
Two 20” floating hoses are used for transfer of the LNG from the FLNG to the LNGC via the HiLoad LNG. One identical 20” hose is used for vapour return to the FLNG. All three loading arms and LNG Hose Couplers on the LNG Loading Terminal are arranged for dual use, i.e. can be interchanged between liquid and vapor service.
The HiLoad LNG docks on the port side of the LNGC, and the hose reels for the LNG and Vapour hoses are located on the port side of the FLNG. The HiLoad LNG are equipped with three quick connect/disconnect Hose Couplers for the LNG and Vapour hoses.
