  • Print
BSS, Tokyo, Japan :
Global experts on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) on Wednesday said port for Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) in Bangladesh is important as it has already introduced offshore FSRU.
Talking about onshore LNG terminal in Bangladesh, Hideo Hasegawa, general manager of New Business Promotion Officer, Japex, said Bangladesh government has introduced offshore FSRU needed port having good facility for supplying LNG to pipelines.
"Optimization of supply and demand system is another important criterion for smooth supply of LNG," he pointed out while responding to a query about LNG supply and demand globally, especially in Bangladesh, at Hilton Hotel here.
Experts said the usages of LNG have been dramatically changed in the last 10 years as many countries introduced FSRU and installed gas pipelines for LNG supply aimed at ensuring energy security. CWC Group organised two-day long "2nd Japan LNG & Gas Summit 2019" and held eight discussions through eight sessions where global experts shared their practical experiences and opportunities of LNG and natural gas.
Chairman of the Sasakawa Peace Foundation Nobuo Tanaka formally inaugurated the summit and highlighted LNG activities across the world especially for South East Asia.
Director, Oil and Gas Division, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), Japan, Masato Sasaki and Chairman of JERA Hendrik Gordenker presented keynote papers in the summit.
Talking about onshore LNG terminal in Bangladesh, Hideo Hasegawa said Bangladesh government went for land based LNG terminal, which is an appropriate decision.
"Operations of LNG carriers are socio-economically very important and highly technical. The key tools of digitization in this context are not AI but domain knowledge and engineering simulations play major roles," he said.
The experts also discussed about cyber security while transporting LNG by vessels in the sea in a session.
