Perth-based company Transborders Energy has entered a Joint Study Agreement (JSA) to work with Japan's Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) to together continue the development of its Floating LNG (FLNG) Solution and to pursue its deployment on a range of stranded offshore gas resource opportunities.

Transborders’ FLNG Solution provides a pre-determined 1.3 MTPA FLNG development concept with a package of streamlined commercial & regulatory approval framework (including LNG buyers) to gas resource owners.  

Transborders’ Chairman Jack Sato says, “We are very pleased to welcome MOL as a strategic partner to our FLNG Solution.  In addition to Kyushu Electric Power Company in Japan, participation of MOL, a world-class major shipping line, will definitely underpin TBE’s business model and strengthen the development of our venture.  Truly a major step forward.”

Upon completion of the Transborders’ FLNG Solution development work at the end of 2019, Transborders will be in a position to convert a range of stranded gas resources into ‘project sanction (FID) ready’ state within 24 months after FLNG Solution deployment, while also allowing LNG buyers access to competitive LNG supply sources.

Transborders’ FLNG Solution development work has obtained in March 2018 “Major Project” designation from the Australian Federal Government.
