Samsung Heavy Industries Co., a major shipyard in South Korea, said Thursday that it has developed its own liquid natural gas regasification system for its LNG floating storage and regasification unit.

The new LNG regasification system, called S-Regas, uses glycol and reduces the risk of corrosion caused by traditional methods of heating LNG directly with seawater, according to Samsung Heavy.

Samsung Heavy claims that the new system will help save costs and enhance its quality management.

"The new LNG regasification system improves the LNG FSRU's safety and performance," Samsung Heavy said. It added that "with a proven track record and experience, we will meet our customers' needs, making savings on the operating costs of the LNG FSRU and providing solid performance." (Yonhap)
