The introduction of Floating Liquified Natural Gas (FLNG) provides more flexibility and permit the monetisation of assets through liquefaction of natural gas in remote areas. It reduces development costs and time from schedules. FLNG solutions are also used for exporting near-shore gas reserves or gas from an on-land pipeline network by locating the LNG production facility near shore. It is crucial to understand the environmental and design aspects affecting the operation to operate FLNGs successfully. Also, it is essential to understand all critical aspects of FLNG such as process, liquefaction, storage, offloading, energy and environmental issues.

The Floating Liquified Natural Gas (FLNG) training course will focus on the technical challenges and risks associated with the design, operation and maintenance of an FLNG. The participants will gain knowledge on FNLG plant process, storage, offloading, operational safety, energy and environmental aspects.


At the end of the Floating Liquified Natural Gas (FLNG) training course, delegates will be able to:

  • Learn about regulations and key operational and maintenance requirements
  • Recognise the effects of the marine environment on FLNG design and operation
  • Learn about FLNG process plant & operational practices
  • Understand the FLNG storage and offloading operations
  • Understand Health & Safety and risk management in FLNG operations
  • Gain knowledge on cryogenic piping, energy and environmental aspects


The Floating Liquified Natural Gas (FLNG) training course is beneficial to a wide range of professionals, including:

  • Engineers from different disciplines
  • Project engineers and managers
  • Managers and executives who are new to the LNG and FLNG industry
  • Operational & maintenance staff
  • Non-engineering personnel working in FLNG environment


This highly practical and results-oriented Floating Liquified Natural Gas (FLNG) training course is based on adult learning concept. The facilitator will give plenty of input and then help participants to make sense of the themes through discussion and practice. It incorporates short inspiring demonstrations, roles play and practice to enhance learning. There will be ample time for Q&A, discussions with ‘return to work’ action planning. The program will reinforce key concepts within an inspiring and engaging learning environment. Course manual, presentation, videos and case studies will be used in training.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
