Re: Discharge ports, meters per second, cubic meters per second.

Hi @RussellJoseph Sincere apologies for the delay, we've been working on the community sessions. Using the same water for regassification is a process called ‘closed loop.’ Closed loop uses some of the LNG cargo to operate gas-fired boilers that heats the LNG as opposed to seawater. However, this decreases the amount of gas available to the gas network as it uses approximately 1.5% of the total LNG storage. This is equivalent to about one extra full load LNG carrier each year and approxima ...

However, we would have ensured either ship had the capacity to run closed loop and open loop regasification. Apart from this, the Esperanza and the Giant have almost identical configurations. This includes the s ...

We investigated several different sites across Australia, including Crib Point in Victoria, Port Adelaide in South Australia and Port Kembla in New South Wales. The evaluation process considered several factors including access to key gas markets, cost of incremental pipeline transmission, availability of suitable land for onshore facilities, cost of ...
