"Promoting Technical and Operational Excellence in The European Gas Processing Industry"

Who are we?

A bit of background

GPA founded in the US in the 1920's. In 1983, GPA Europe was established as a parallel organisation.

 

We currently have over 200 members, including the great majority of European gas companies. We aim to provide a forum to share ideas by bringing together business and technical leaders from a range of gas processing organisations across 20+ countries.

 

We are a not for profit organisation that brings players of the European Gas Industry together to do business around technical stories.

 

Here at GPA Europe, our role is two-fold:

1  GPA Europe promotes technical and operational excellence

2  GPA Europe serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas and information

How can we help you?

We will be highlighting a paper of particular interest from our archives each month.

Paper of the Month

This month we are looking back to a paper on FLNG from Lars Odeskaug, Front Energy. Presented at our 2019 Spring Conference:

"Offshore FLNG Production Using the Cefront Hull Concept"

"Natural gas is the cleanest and most environmentally friendly fossil fuel, and as global demand for natural gas increases, the development of offshore Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) production technology is becoming an important factor in maintaining sustained growth. Although offshore FLNG production concepts have been the focus of research and development for decades, it is only in the last ten years that a few FLNG projects have achieved a Final Investment Decision (FID) and have progressed to detailed design and construction.

Cefront FLNG vessel provides a more stable and economical platform for the offshore gas pre-treatment and liquefaction processes than conventional ship-shaped hulls. It is a further development of the axisymmetric hull and is more fabrication “friendly” and thereby less costly than earlier designs. The Cefront FLNG vessel has a more efficient topsides layout than the axisymmetric units, and at the same time it has significantly less pitch and roll motions than a conventional ship-shaped hull. This eliminates the need for expensive turret and swivel solutions." 

Presented at the GPA Europe Spring Conference, 2019.
