Exmar – an international provider of floating solutions for conversion and transportation of gas – in December 2022 awarded ICE a fast-track contract to help integrate two existing vessels into an offshore export facility for liquified natural gas (LNG). Having substantial capacity and ample LNG project expertise, ICE immediately mobilized a project team and has during 2023 assigned close to 100 of its engineers and naval architects to meet Exmar’s requirements. Drydocks World Dubai, which has earlier performed several ICE-designed ship conversions, did the physical conversion work.

The pictures (courtesy of Exmar) show the recent sail away event in Dubai of the two vessels – the “Tango” Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) and the “Excalibur” Floating Storage Unit (FSU) – attended by officials from Eni, Exmar, Société Nationale des Pétroles du Congo (SNPC) and Drydocks World Dubai. Following their successful conversion, the two vessels will form part of an Eni project in Congo.

ICE is proud to have contributed with critical capacity and expertise to the timely execution of this challenging project. ICE did this in parallel with its other workload, which in 2023 included three other LNG-related projects including participation in two fast-track conversions of LNG carriers into Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRUs).
