DSME, ABS in FLNG pact

Offshore and marine classification society ABS has teamed up with South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co. (DSME) to support safety and apply class guidance to a conceptual Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) unit.


“We are pleased to sign this agreement and work with DSME to support new innovations and technology advancements in the offshore industry,” said ABS Executive Vice President of Global Offshore Ken Richardson.

“As gas continues to play an increasingly important role in the global energy mix and industry looks to develop new resources, ABS remains committed to its mission of advancing safety.”

The project is planned to start at the end of May and have a duration of twelve months. ABS will review the conceptual design to the applicable class requirements and provide industry-leading guidance to support safety during development.

“By partnering with ABS, we are able to apply their best-in-class standards and leverage their extensive experience in the offshore sector,” says DSME COO of Offshore Business Unit, Jang-Jin Kim. “Successful construction of the world’s first FLNG, ‘SATU’, in 2016, is further proof of DSME’s technological excellence. Working with ABS as our advisor, we will be able to develop an effective design with robust safety and enhance the LNG value chain.”
