The LNG carriers move slowly at about 20 knots, so several LNG carriers must be on their way to ensure onshore tanks are available for continuous LNG production. Let us assume that there is no supply for domestic/industrial consumption. See our. LNG tankers may also be offloaded offshore, away from congested and shallow ports. The question I always get is how long does one TCF of gas last? For the two 5 MPTA trains, the reservoir had enough gas to last 216 years. But the LNG market has been quite volatile.

Kapal ini punya cargo tank 2 x 550 M3. Gas (delivered via pipeline to the plant) was liquefied during hours or seasons of low demand and heated back to gaseous phase to be pumped into the pipeline grid during periods of high demand. A metric ton is volume unit. The average LNG price for October delivery into northeast Asia was estimated at about $4.05 per mmBtu, down five cents from the previous week. LNG ship and storage tank capacity is usually measured in cubic meters of liquid (m3). One bcm equals 35.2 bcf or billion cubic feet. Sometimes these questions come from curious onlookers (civil, electrical, scheduling, project, safety engineers etc.) But since then, its LNG imports plan from the spot market has faced a setback amid a surge in prices. Copyright 2019 Tokyo Commodity Exchange, Inc. 2,531,250 - 3,281,250 MMBtu). Asian Import Prices for LNG 2013 – 2019 And then LNG is sold on dollars per MMBTU. It is a spot index for cargoes “on the waters in the vicinity of Singapore which could go into any port” and based on cargo sizes of 135,000 cubic metres capacity to 175,000 cubic metres capacity. Platts WIM reflects cargoes of 1,000-1,150 Btu/scf calorific value, of 3.2 million MMBtu volume, of vessel size range of 135,000-175,000m3 for delivery into India, Dubai and Kuwait. An example of the reverse situation was PLL spot cargo of July 27, 2020 at price of $2.2 but Reliance, India awarded a cargo only three days later on July 30, at $2.7, a full 20 percent higher.” Qatar tripled its LNG production capacity to over 80 million metric tons a year — about 11 billion cubic feet a day — leaping past Malaysia and Indonesia as the world's largest LNG maker. The decision to commercialize a gas field by either LNG or direct pipeline is related to the distance to market from the gas reservoir. So I will try to summarize the relationship in a table first followed by some discussion. 2,531,250 - 3,281,250 MMBtu). Units used in the LNG trade can be confusing. LNG exports are poised to be an important catalyst for economic growth in African countries. Rising LNG prices are also encouraging development of gas resources previously considered uneconomic. The first commercial LNG facility was built in the United States in 1941 in Cleveland as a peak load shaving facility. Information available online shows 1 MMBtu = 12.1 gallons of LNG. The price difference doesn’t necessarily means a jump in price of nearly 40 cents or 11%, as larger cargoes usually command a premium. Fuel cost: The voyage fuel or ‘bunker’ consumption is directly proportional to the distance and speed of the vessel. Spot LNG prices for delivery to northeast Asia in January were $8.075/MMBtu on Dec. 11, according to NGI data. This facility would require recoverable reserves of approximately  1 tcf over a 20-year life. Straightforward calculation: 200,000 cubic meters of LNG = 4,366,479.34 MMBtu. Without making adjustment for NPV, the 100 MPTA Park and 120 TCF corresponds to 840 billion dollars of LNG. 1,000 BTU/SCF is widely used value for discussion purposes. The process guys (and gals) will run the simulations for all these removal processes and different compositions. The “LNG chain,” shown below, consists of discrete sections: upstream, midstream liquefaction plant, shipping, regasification, and finally, gas distribution. The liquefaction unit liquefies all gas that goes to it. The diagram below shows the layout of a typical LNG liquefaction and loading facility. LNG technology is not new. SINGAPORE: Asian spot liquefied natural gas (LNG) prices hovered above $4 per million British thermal units (mmBtu) this week as cargo loadings from the United States were delayed due to a powerful hurricane. 2,531,250 - 3,281,250 MMBtu). Each case will have slightly different MW as well as HHV. Sellers should nominate an LNG ship either 45 days prior to the first day of the traded delivery window, or state the base vessel in the offer for more prompt delivery windows. Gas reservoir capacity is usually referred in TCF. At the receiving location, liquid methane is offloaded from the ship and heated, allowing its physical phase to return from liquid to gas. The DKI index, based on a cargo of between 138,000 cubic metres capacity and 170,000 cubic metres, is seen in the second half of July at US$4.183 per MMBtu before increasing to US$4.320 per MMBtu for the first half of August. Singapore LNG spot cargo prices moved higher again to be over the US$4.500 per million British thermal units level for fixtures to North Asia and the Dubai-Kuwait-India market as September quotes were now available. The vessel later renamed the Methane Pioneer, shown in Figure 1, was refitted for LNG … For smaller trains (less than 3 MTA), there are numerous processes available, including those from Black & Veatch, Hamworthy, and others. Figure 5. Thus, 1.26 MM lbs/hr and MW of 16.7 gives us 75,449 lb moles of gas which will be liquefied. The upstream and midstream sections of the LNG chain are identical to traditional gas systems, with identical gas wells, wellheads, and field processing facilities. LNG ship sizes are specified in cargo volume (typically, thousands of cubic meters), and once the LNG has been reconverted to gas, it is sold by energy units (in millions of British thermal units, MMBtu). This is typically the second largest cost component after the chartering cost. The heating value is in BTU/SCF. SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Oil major BP on Wednesday sold a liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo for delivery into Northeast Asia in December to trader Vitol at $7.65 per million British thermal units (mmBtu), S&P Global Platts data shows. The ships operate at low atmospheric pressure (unlike LPG carriers, which operate at much higher pressures), transporting the LNG in individual insulated tanks. Note that this HHV is of the gas vaporized from LNG and not that of the cubic feet of liquefied gas. However, GIIGNL said, carbon-offset LNG should be seen as a premium product. The MW varies from plant to plant and even for the same train, the MW may vary depending on the feed gas quality. Vaporizers warm LNG from –161.5°C to more than 5°C, converting methane from liquid phase into gas. Japan and South Korea that can receive a minimum cargo size of 135,000 cu m. Prices of LNG spot cargoes delivered into ports in Taiwan or China with the same minimum cargo size may be normalized to basis Japan/Korea, using an assessed deviation cost from Japan/Korea to Taiwan/China. LNG receiving terminals, also called regasification facilities or regas facilities, receive LNG ships, store the LNG until required, and send out gaseous methane into the local pipeline grid. BASIS : One Train with a capacity of annualized 5 MPTA or 5,000,000 tons/year, Without correction for plant Availability (Operating Factor), This relation heavily depends on Feed gas composition, CO2, H2S, N2, H2O content in wellhead gas and efficiency of refrigeration compressor drivers. • Cargo containment system • Floating LNG (FLNG) • Regasification projects • Mini-LNG carriers • Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) • Contracts 4. As of early 2006, there were at least 17 plants producing LNG in Africa, Middle East, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, and Alaska. DWT-nya cuma 640 MT. The global LNG fraternity has adopted two main liquefaction processes for large (greater than 3 MTA) trains: the pure refrigerant cascade process (also known as the Phillips process), and the pre-cooled propane mixed refrigerant MCR process (promoted by Air Products, Shell, and others, and used by the majority of LNG plants). So there was plenty of gas for more trains. Various studies have shown that the efficiency of the main processors of both processes is similar. In addition, significant quantity of feed gas is used to run those enormous refrigeration compressors and gas turbine generators. Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Petroleum Nadeem Babar said in a TV show on Friday, “The average import price of LNG for December 2020 and January 2021 stands at $6.34 mmbtu … So let us use a typical LNG density of 450 kg/cubic meter. In Asia, which is LNG’s biggest consumer, LNG may go for US$ 15/MMBTU. The answer depends on the composition of the gas and how fast you take the gas out of the reservoir. Platts publishes a single value assessment for JKM. Note 2: Ship and Cargo size Assuming average capacity of 160,000 cubic meters (approximately 3,000,000 MMBtu)). Earlier in the week, Vitol sold a 3.3-3.5 TBtu cargo to Diamond Gas International at $3.60/MmBtu, according to Platts data. This is accomplished using a floating mooring system (similar to that used for oil imports) via undersea insulated LNG pipelines to a land-based regas facility. The assessment is based on confirmed Semi-buried tanks, which can be spaced closely together, are most common in Japan, where land is scarce. You can change your cookie choices and withdraw your consent in your settings at any time. BTU Content of the LNG - The HHV of LNG has a defined range of a minimum 975 BTU/SCF to a maximum of 1,050 BTU/SCF. Note 2: Ship and Cargo size Ship and Cargo size:Assuming avg. LNG Process - From Plant to Plant – the LNG process by Woodside Energy, Copyright © Vivek Chandra | vchandra@natgas.info. Natural gas is measured in MMBtu’s. 1 m3 liquid = 264 gallons or 6.29 barrels. A metric tonne is equivalent to 1000 kg or 2204.6 lbs. Liquefaction plants are typically the most expensive element in an LNG project. Because LNG requires gas to be cooled to very low temperatures, care must be taken to remove all impurities, especially water, from the methane stream prior to processing by the liquefaction plant. This website uses cookies to improve service and provide tailored ads. 2,531,250 - 3,281,250 MMBtu). MMBTU. At $6per mmBtu, the average 3.2 million mmBtu cargo worked out at about $19m while at $15.28 per mmBtu the same cargo would cost about $49m — almost $30m costlier. Unlike crude oil tank farms, one can’t justify LNG tank farm as the LNG tanks are very expensive (LNG is stored at minus 260 deg F). Future Post – Why do they always have to have power plant along with LNG Plant? There are a number of companies that are promoting their FLNG (Floating LNG) concepts, with first production likely post 2015 in Malaysia followed by Colombia and then Australia with the giant Prelude FLNG project. Platts defines the current standard ship and cargo sizes as 135,000-175,000 cubic meters (Apprx. LNG is usually transported to the gas consumer by specially designed refrigerated ships. Figure 5. Hence divide total MMBtu’s by 50 to get tons. 4.9 *Detailed ** Preliminary (Notes) ・ ”Spot-LNG” refers to LNG that are traded on a to cargo basiscargo , and does not mean term contracts of LNG (so-called long, medium, short-term contracts). Since then, however, the majority of large base load projects have been based on Air Products’ propane Multi-Component Refrigerant (MCR) cryogenic heat exchangers. The first large-scale LNG plant was built in Arzew, Algeria, in 1964 and went online in 1965. LNG trader Trafigura bought a Pluto LNG spot cargo below $7.50/MMBtu DES for mid-July delivery to Singapore, a source with direct knowledge of the transaction said Thursday. It may also have MEG which is injected in the pipeline to prevent hydrate formation. The North Asian price fell by about 2.3 percent to an October average of US$4.425 per MMBtu. Cargo LNG besaran CuM (M3) nya berbeda2 tergantung size LNG ship nya. 1 MMBtu is equal to 1 million BTU (British Thermal Unit). In addition, there will be other impurities and gases such as CO2, H2S etc. 1 mt LNG = 2.21 m 3 LNG. LNG plant capacity is usually specified in million metric tonnes per year (mt/y or mtpa). Different LNG has a different calorific power hence to get the answer we need to know calorific coefficient for specific LNG. As of July 1, LinkedIn will no longer support the Internet Explorer 11 browser. After removing all the liquids, the feed gas is accurately measured in MMSCFD. The conversion from tons to cubic meters is simple. This is available from the heat and material balances that the process engineers run for different compositions. There will be dehydration and mercury removal. This gas is then transported to gas consumers by pipeline in the same manner as natural gas produced from a local gas field. Cargoes are normally sold on DES basis. Gas converted to LNG can be transported by ship over long distances where pipelines are neither economic nor feasible. The above analysis implies the MOSS LNG carrier is transporting roughly 88.4 million std m3 (3.1 Bcf), or approximately 3.1 trillion BTUs. in Freight News 04/12/2020. 3 FLEET EVOLUTION 1 & SHIPPING COSTS. In recent years, the size and capacity of LNG carriers has increased greatly. Brunei LNG also sold a March 12-15 delivery cargo at around $4.40 per mmBtu, one of them said. The high volumes of supply in the market continued to impose downward pressure on prices, while crude oil was stable in the week at around $62 per barrel. With a conventional cargo having around 250,000 tonnes of CO2e, this could cost $2.5 million, or $0.6 per mmBtu. Though the overall percentage of gas transported as LNG is less than 10% of global gas trade, it is growing rapidly, involving an increasing number of buyers and sellers. Saat ini, kapasitas kargo LNG yg common, range size nya adalah 120,000 s/d 140,000 M3. Cheniere Energy, the biggest LNG exporter in the US, received no cargo cancellations from customers for December loading at its two terminals, market sources said Oct. 21. The average LNG price for January delivery into Northeast Asia was estimated at about $8.10 per million British thermal units (mmBtu), up 70 cents from the previous week, the sources said. Our Hysis runs for a case indicated that one TCF of wellhead gas produced about 18 million tons of LNG. Platts defines the current standard ship and cargo size as 135,000-175,000 cubic meters (Apprx. or from someone who is actually negotiating sales agreements with prospective buyers. You may have rich gas or lean gas and may have a design gas composition. It bought Bangladesh’s first ever spot LNG cargo from Vitol at $3.8321 per mmBtu for delivery over late September to early October. On my last project, the reservoir capacity was known to be 120 TCF. In conventional onshore-based regas facilities, offloaded LNG is stored in large tanks, either above ground or semi-buried, until gas is required by consumers. A rule of thumb commonly followed states that LNG could be a viable option versus pipeline transport when the following characteristics are present: ✓ The gas market is more than 2,000 km from the field.✓ The gas field contains at least 3 tcf to 5 tcf of recoverable gas.✓ Gas production costs are, ideally, less than $5/MMBtu, delivered to the liquefaction plant.✓ The gas contains minimal other impurities, such as CO2 or sulphur.✓ A marine port where a liquefaction plant could be built is relatively close to the field.✓ The political situation in the country supports large-scale, long-term investments.✓ The market price in the importing country is sufficiently high to support the entire chain and provide a competitive return to the gas exporting company and host country.✓ A pipeline alternative would require crossing uninvolved third-party countries and the buyer is concerned about security of supply. (The exact shrinkage is closer to 610 times, but 600 is commonly quoted.) Japan and South Korea that can receive a minimum cargo size of 135,000 cu m. Prices of LNG spot cargoes delivered into ports in Taiwan or China with the same minimum cargo size may be normalized to basis Japan/Korea, using an assessed deviation cost from Japan/Korea to Taiwan/China. Smaller and more remote fields could be developed using converted or specially constructed ships that will combine LNG production and storage systems, similar to FPSO production for oil fields. The most common size is around 147k to 160k m3 but larger vessels are also available between 210k m3 (Q-Flex) and up to 260k m3 (Q-Max). France's Total has shipped its first carbon-neutral cargo of LNG, from the Ichthys plant in Darwin, in what analysts expect will become a growing trend. Pakistan to import LNG at $6.34 per mmbtu. Thus 600 ft3 of methane gas will shrink to a volume of around 1 ft3 of clear and odorless LNG. The main components of a regas facility are the offloading berths and port facilities, LNG storage tanks, vaporizers to convert the LNG into gaseous phase, and pipeline link to the local gas grid. , Chief LNG, Chemicals and New Ventures at Hascol Petroleum Ltd. (2017-present) Answered March 20, 2018 Roughly 50 MMBTUs in 1 metric ton of LNG. Also, there are small LNG tank boil off and loading operation losses. Being a process engineer, I am regularly asked the question: How are all these units related and can one convert from one unit to other and how? The North Asian price fell by about 2.3 percent to an October average of US$4.425 per MMBtu. Platts defines the current standard ship and cargo size as 135,000-175,000 cubic meters (Apprx. loading and shipping losses. In some cases, there will be end flash or nitrogen rejection unit at the end of the train. After these treatments, the gas is ready for liquefaction. The delivery will be the first cargo that Trafigura has received in Singapore after securing storage and reload capacity at the terminal last month. Oil Price Roller Coasters, Project Deferrals…. Spot LNG prices for delivery to northeast Asia in January were $8.075/MMBtu on Dec. 11, according to NGI data. (Note – density of water is 1,000 kg/cubic meter). As a very broad rule of thumb, a 5 MPTA train will need about 830 MMSCFD of gas coming in the plant. Not only that, the C3 and C4’s sell for higher than LNG. We have not made any adjustments for those in this example. September** 5.4 . LinkedIn recommends the new browser from Microsoft. Ahead of the liquefaction unit, there will be treatment processes that remove MEG, condensate, formation water, CO2, H2S, etc. BTU Content of the LNG - The HHV of LNG has a defined range of a minimum 975 BTU/SCF to a maximum of 1,050 BTU/SCF. Until the recent increase in capital costs over the past 8-10 years, economies of scale in LNG projects wassignificant. Then what is left is liquefied. The typical LNG customer will be thousands of kilometers away from the LNG plant. Japan and South Korea that can receive a minimum cargo size of 135,000 cu m. Prices of LNG spot cargoes delivered into ports in Taiwan or China with the same minimum cargo size may be normalized to basis Japan/Korea, using an assessed deviation cost from Japan/Korea to Taiwan/China. We charge a small and fixed fee per mmBtu on any trades transacted through us or through our partners & suppliers and only after the delivery of a cargo (we do not charge any upfront fees). (This is abbreviated as MMT or, more commonly, MT. The gas flow coming in the plant is referenced in MMSCFD and the reservoir capacity is TCF. CONCLUSIONS 2. All these are removed before liquefaction. But the sources believe LNG demand in China is improving and could increase spot prices. And the project did consider plans for future mega trains that would give total LNG park capacity to 100 MPTA. This translates to 571 tons/hr or 1.26 MM Lbs/hr. By using this site, you agree to this use. Platts publishes a single value assessment for the JKM. 4.9 *Detailed ** Preliminary (Notes) ・ ”Spot-LNG” refers to LNG that are traded on a to cargo basiscargo , and does not mean term contracts of LNG (so-called long, medium, short-term contracts). :USD/MMBtu) Month Contract-based Price Arrival-based Price 2019 August* 5.3 5.5 2019 . Seperately, BP sold a cargo to PetroChina for delivery over Dec. 22-24 at $7.10 per mmbtu, the data showed. If LNG was sold at US $ 8/MMBTU, this train will generate a gross revenue of US $ 22,879 per hour or US $ 2 billion per year. The delivery will be the first cargo that Trafigura has received in Singapore after securing storage and reload capacity at the terminal last month. Recently completed plants, such as Woodside’s Pluto project, and nearly all the currently under construction Australian projects have announced costs that are upto 10 times greater per unit of LNG produced than those that began production before the rise in costs. It has always been in cubic meters and majority of LNG customers use metric measurements.
