Melbana Energy Ltd (MAY) is planning to construct the Timor Sea LNG Project in Northern Territory, Australia.

The project involves the construction of an offshore LNG plant with 3 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) capacity. It includes the construction of storage tanks of capacity 170,000m3, control rooms, loading and unloading facilities, the installation of cryogenic process facilities, air fin coolers, fire protection and safety systems.

The LNG production module is to be air products, dual mixed refrigerant design, using twin cryogenic heat exchangers. The plant will be powered by four LM6000 gas turbines.

The platform will be approximately 50x100x8m with six steel legs by which the platform elevates itself using jacks.

The LNG tank will be constructed on a concrete GBS (Gravity Base Structure). The tank will be approximately 85m in diameter and the top of the tank dome will stand approximately 70m above the sea floor. The present design capacity is 170,000m3, with a potential to be increased to 225,000m3 at detailed design stage with a small increase in diameter.

Torp Technology was appointed to supply HiLoad technology for LNG carriers.

The Environmental Approval for the project was granted in 2004 and the approval was reviewed and renewed in 2012.
