11:30 AM Highlighting the Importance of a Project Integrator to Ensure Effective Project Development and Execution in FLNG Projects

Rene Van Vliet , Chief Project Officer, Next Decade and former VP, Global LNG, Shell

Many Companies do not have the resources that major IOC’s or NOC’s have to develop an FLNG project, which can lead to significant challenges during the project development stages up till FID (Final Investment Decision).

This session will highlight the importance of bringing together key stakeholders when it comes to FLNG project development and FEED phases, including LNG offtakers, molecule owners, financiers,consultants,  EPCs and operators via a project integrator to ensure effective project management and development towards FID (Final Investment Decision).

The session will highlight the biggest challenges in FLNG project development and examine specific cases on FLNG projects.

The aim of the roundtables is to bring the key stakeholders from oil operators, EPCs, shipyards, financiers and solution providers together to move discussions forward on the key topics and challenges that the industry currently faces.

Rather than discussing on sensitive and specific projects, it provides an excellent opportunity for all stakeholders to learn from each other and gather important insights that they can implement to current and/or upcoming FLNG projects.

Each roundtable will be hosted by a leading subject matter expert, whose role is to facilitate discussions. Delegates will rotate around their table of choice over the course of two days, allowing maximum interactivity, learning and networking opportunities.

Please refer to our Roundtables Page for more details on the specific roundtable topics and hosts.
