Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS) has developed LNG-FPSO pre- FEED based on KSMR process that is a new natural gas liquefaction process. The KSMR process features an SMR-based simple structure and a relatively high-efficiency. The production capacity is 2.5 mtpa. The topside process utilizes aMDEA process for AGRU, turbo expander type for NGL extraction, and N2 flash drum type for the end flash process. The liquefaction process utilizes SWHEs for main heat exchangers, and LM6000 model for gas turbine. There are two gas turbines for refrigerant of light component (LK) and mixed refrigerant compressors and two electric motors for refrigerant of heavy component (HK) compressors, and the other electric motor for NG boosting compressor. This LNG-FPSO utilizes internal turret mooring system, KC-1 LNG Cargo containment system, side-by-side loading system.
