This paper focuses on cost-effectively designing, developing, and operating liquified natural gas (LNG) facilities in Arctic environments. It discusses the inherent challenges associated with engineering, constructing, and operating LNG infrastructure in harsh and highly remote conditions and outlines proven strategies for reducing risk. Specific areas that are discussed include the use of modular design techniques to mitigate overall project risk and drive efficient execution, as well as the deployment of digital tools/technologies for minimizing operating and maintenance costs and maximizing plant availability. For illustrative purposes, the paper discusses the strategies employed on two real-world LNG projects, both of which are located inside the Arctic Circle.
