CNITC VPower FSU Myanmar LNG
Speed-to-market was the priority for Myanmar’s first LNG import terminal. This project required a business who could bring together independently developed components and provide an integrated commissioning start-up and plant operating system and procedures. CNITC and VPower engaged INCITIAS to provide the FSU and onshore regasification operations implementation support. Our experience and understanding supported the seamless handover of the project from construction phase to first gas in less than 10 weeks.
In 2020, our clients CNITC and Vpower were developing and constructing the first LNG import terminal in Thilawa, Myanmar. The terminal comprised an onshore regasification facility, temporary LNG offloading facility (phase 1), a full-size LNG FSU jetty (phase2), and a floating storage unit for storage and side-by-side offloading of LNG Cargo. INCITIAS delivered the project in record time, this was made possible by the shared abilities of CNITC and Vpower to lead various independent EPC contracts for onshore regasification, supply of FSU, and jetty construction.
INCITIAS were previously involved as an engineering consultant to LNG Easy, who were contracted to provide a temporary berth and an LNG offloading facility. We initially provided LNG Easy with a proof-of-concept review in relation to their barge mooring concept. When technical challenges arose, INCITIAS supported LNG Easy through the design and sourcing of a flexible subsea pipeline for LNG. Further to this work, INCITIAS designed a temporary boil-off gas heater for the start-up phase.
Then we supported CNITC and VPower to deliver the operations framework and managed cooperation between the FSU provider, the EPC and the operator’s team.
As this was CNITC and Vpower’s first LNG terminal, INCITIAS was tasked with developing all operating procedures and management systems from scratch. We delivered this project in record time: from contract award to delivery in 10 weeks.
During the development of the operational systems, we were able to identify and recommend several technical improvement opportunities which were implemented during the commissioning.
