Marine Terminals and LNG Regasification Terminals

Fluor has over four decades of experience in the international marine terminal industry, providing life-cycle services in all types of port, harbor and terminal projects. Based on the challenging location and desired project performance criteria, Fluor uses a consultative approach to encompass project conceptual, feasibility and front-end engineering design (FEED) continuing through detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction management. In addition, Fluor's marine constructability acumen covers:

This experience and diverse background enables Fluor to focus on optimizing value, including ultimate operability and reliability, during the critical conceptual planning and design activities of the facility.

Marine Terminals

Marine terminal special considerations include:

  • Breakwater systems
  • Fixed platform jackets
  • Floating docks
  • Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) mooring systems:
    • Fixed spread mooring or turret type
    • Offloading system for shuttle tankers, tandem system, or remote buoy
    • Flexible risers for incoming / outgoing flow lines
  • Gravity-based structures
  • Material Offloading Facilities (MOF) for plant construction
  • Module offloading docks
  • Navigation channels
  • Offshore terminals
    • Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO)
    • Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU)
  • Ports and harbors
  • Sheet pile structures
  • Trestle and jetty structures

LNG Regasification Terminals

Fluor has served the gas processing industry for over half a century, with active participation in LNG for the last 40 years. The combination of both LNG and marine terminal capabilities, along with our project management and financing expertise, has pushed Fluor to the forefront of LNG receiving terminal design. Fluor has been involved in projects with a combined capacity of more than 60 MTPA on five continents around the globe. Fluor continues to invest substantially in new technologies to meet tomorrow's challenges.

Our expertise includes:

  • Marine facilities pre-FEED / FEED design and EPC contracting
  • Patent-pending solutions for LNG heating value and composition control
  • Patented subsea LNG pipeline technology
  • Program management and project financing
  • Technology evaluation for both onshore and offshore (floating and fixed) projects

Coastal Engineering Expertise

Fluor's coastal engineering group has extensive experience in coastal hydraulics, hydrology, water resources, environment and oceanography. Our services provide comprehensive support for all phases of marine projects. Our established in-house coastal hydrodynamic modeling capability gives Fluor a competitive edge, eliminating the need for third-party consultants.

Coastal engineering services include:

  • Anchorage mooring system design
  • Calculation of wave and current force on marine structures and overtopping
  • Design of shore protection structures
  • Establishment of metocean design criteria including wind, wave, tide, current, tsunami, storm surge, sea level rise and ice
  • Marine facility layout and conceptual design
  • Navigation channel design
  • Passing ship study
  • Under keel clearance study
