China’s FLNG builder Wison Offshore & Marine has changed its name to Wison New Energies.
Wison said in a statement that the new name “better represents its unwavering commitment to providing low carbon technologies and solutions that the world needs.”
The name change reflects Wison’s core vision about energy challenges and how to address them, it said.
“Wison New Energies emerges as a leading solution-provider for a green and vibrant world, bridging the glimmer of hope seen today with the technologies and solutions that will define the future,” Wison said.
It will be able to store over 180,000 cubic meters of LNG.
The FLNG will serve Eni’s Congo project which will reach an overall LNG production capacity of 3 million tons per year, or about 4.5 billion cubic meters/year, from 2025.
Eni recently introduced the first gas into its Tango floating LNG (FLNG) facility moored in Congolese waters.
The floating LNG producer, delivered in 2017 by Wison, has a liquefaction capacity of about 1 billion cubic meters per year of gas, or 0.6 mtpa, and a storage capacity of 16,100 cbm.
Besides this project, Wison is also working on other FLNG projects, including with Nigeria’s NNPC, Indonesia’s Genting Oil & Gas, and Delfin Midstream, the US developer of a floating LNG export project in the Gulf of Mexico.
