The financial viability of many LNG plants are driven by the simple need to maintain operational efficiency, from production and transport through to export. We help achieve this by delivering technologies, skilled and flexible workforces as well as environmentally sustainable solutions.
Challenges of LNG and Gas Plants
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is natural gas (methane) that is chilled to -161ºC until it becomes a liquid, primarily for ease of storage and transport, before it is regasified and distributed as natural gas. At present, Australia has three operating LNG projects with an additional seven LNG projects under construction – almost $200 billion worth of investment.
Such forecasted growth creates challenges and are our team are uniquely placed to help address these challenges including:
- Demands on finances
- Inadequate support infrastructure
- Access to skilled labour
- Equitable sharing of revenues
- Competitive markets
- Social license to operate
Veolia's LNG and gas plant solutions
We can plug in to your business to help provide environmental management and to ensure communities are being engaged to effectively minimise social impacts.
LNG plants and other gas plants, including shale gas must maintain balance between financial productivity whilst ensuring they minimise environmental impacts. Veolia can deliver a holistic environmental management plan, from ‘greenfield’ stage through to decommissioning stages, including:
- plant water and wastewater management recommendations as well as operations, maintenance and asset management plans
- energy management plans including energy audits and delivery of low-emissions technologies and solutions
- waste and resource management to reduce waste product to landfill, including hazardous and contaminated materials
Reducing LNG environmental impacts ensures that organisations can consult with key stakeholders on their sustainability profile.
