Apeiron LNG provides expert and experienced Commissioning support. It also provides Design support in all phases, including, significantly, pre-Conceptual and Feasibility, where experience matters most. Apeiron LNG can trouble-shoot Operations, and design and run Guarantee and High-Load test runs, including system capacity checks such as dehydrator capacity, which deteriorates over time, and which tests are problematic for Operations Management.
Apeiron LNG has extensive experience and capability in the design, installation and commissioning of small to large LNG. We also make a great PMC team and provide a specific team of specialists.
Our project designs, LSTK, include:
In PMC, we provide the best solutions, including:
Our team has specialized knowledge of equipment sourcing. We have no commitment whatsoever to any technology of our own or any particular other. Our designs are specific to the project, and we expect to provide solutions more cost-effective than companies with their own technologies or those mostly dedicated to large projects.
We approach the project uniquely in that we provide a Conceptual Design as part of the proposal. Conceptual Design begins with project conception: marine, jetty, plant layout, composition implications, efficiency, availability, capacities with seasonal implications, and power. At this point, we can discuss the implications of and requirements for load control, alarms & trips, ESD/EBD, and flares, as well as offshore/onshore, loading/unloading, warm ship handling, environmental/FERC/government approvals, liquefaction or regasification technologies, and startup/shutdown/turndown operations.
We can LSTK the core technologies such as:
We will PMC where more practicable:
The goal is to provide overall project execution control, which includes schedule and cost tracking and oversight as well as a competent PMC team with complete commitment to the owner.
As a result of our extensive Operations and Troubleshooting experience, the pitfalls of relatively inexperienced office-engineer designs are avoided.
Our methodology locates equipment specifically for the purpose and aggregates it into an overall design. This is contrasted with typical two other approaches:
In this way, we save a lot in schedule and cost.
Project execution follows these steps:
In more practical terminology, we go further than other companies and provide a FEED Stage 1 to the owner before any commitment or cost.
The Team core members stay with the project from beginning to end.
Apeiron mobilizes a Project Team of a few experts with experience in Power/Capex, the equipment, and Commissioning/Operations, to find the quickest path to FID with the best risk/cost. The path FID is a partial FEED. Even in FERC dominated United States, funding has recently proceeded well ahead of FERC approval. It takes experience to know what’s really necessary for funding and how to help the Owner through early decision-making to a reliable Project Definition. Usually this process can be spelled out in early discussions.
To get the best risk/cost, the Project Team has to understand and explain the equipment schedule, Commissioning requirements and vendor support, and performance in Operations. The Project Team manages Power/Capex from the beginning. The way in which Power is delivered to the Process affects the efficiency, the availability, and the equipment Capex. For example, the Project Team addresses features such as the LNG cooling curve and refrigerant compressor curves.
