The scope of work was to evaluate various location options along the coast based on the parameters of the FSRU (Floating Storage and Regasification Unit) vessel and the discharging ship:
– Infrastructure development and indicative costs;
– Determine suitable mooring structures for the various locations;
– Recommend on optimal location and mooring solution;
– If possible, advise on preferred FSRU selection;
– Project management.

CDR has conducted an on-site survey and evaluation. The study report covers a site-allocation study for a FSRU along the South-Western Nigerian coastline, and is focussed on the marine evaluation of various FSRU location options along this stretch of coastline. The marine evaluation includes the following aspects:

  • Predetermined locations to assess
  • Selection of vessel
  • Required Infrastructure development (e.g. pipelines)
  • Suitable mooring structures for the various locations
  • Marine environmental conditions
  • CAPEX and OPEX of the different locations
