Floating LNG stations is the new rage

Aug 03: 8Onshore regasification terminals are being replaced by FSRUs at an increasing rate. Around 30 per cent of new terminals are now being developed with FSRUs, mainly the smaller capacity units up to five
 mtpa. For these projects, an FSRU can often be developed faster, at a lower cost, and with lower capital intensity using a leased vessel.
8The same trend is emerging for floating gas-fired power generation plants, where the same benefits are now possible. Leased power barges and power ships are now available on the market up to 500 MW, and
 in the future, this could grow to 1 GW capacity.
