Registration Open for SMi's 5th Annual Floating LNG Conference

SMi's 5th annual Floating LNG conference, taking place on 13th - 14th February 2017 in London, will play host to leading Floating LNG innovators, with an array of case studies provided on current and upcoming projects from across the globe.

London, United Kingdom, October 08, 2016 --( Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market - over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period.

Against this backdrop, SMi's 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment to ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
