"We are pleased to support Bumi Armada in their ongoing efforts to offer  safe and reliable LNG storage solutions. Our recent AIP for their  innovative FLNG concept is a great example of our continuing collaboration with Bumi Armada, and we look forward to supporting further development of this concept,” said Miguel Hernandez, ABS Senior Vice President for Global Offshore.

 Gary Christenson, Bumi Armada’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are  committed to bringing innovative and sustainable solutions that can  accelerate the delivery of cleaner energy. This technology is a  testament to our strong commitment towards providing the best solutions  that unlock the pathway to achieve net zero by 2050, which is in Bumi Armada’s decarbonization agenda.”
