Client's Challenge

​EGAT is a state-owned enterprise and one of the largest power producers in Thailand. In order to meet the country's increasing natural gas demand for electricity, EGAT is planning to build a 5 MTPA offshore LNG terminal, floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), ​to supply the natural gas to EGAT's current and future gas power plants by the year 2024.

Located 20 kilometers off the coast of Thailand, the FSRU will enable LNG to be received from cargo ships and transferred as natural gas through pipelines and to power plants 38 kilometers from the coast, passing through commercial and residential areas of Bangkok, Thailand's busiest district.
