Natural Gas Hoses for FSRU Vessels

Standard API Spec. 17K

Continental’s flexible hoses are conveying natural gas from the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) to a jetty, fixed platform or a subsea manifold. The Natural Gas Hose and the flexible gas transfer solution is an important part of the Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) value chain, contributing to the transition to cleaner energy sources until complete carbon neutrality is achieved.

General Natural Gas Hose Construction

Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel, its combustion does not emit soot, dust or fumes. It generates 30% less carbon dioxide (CO2) than fuel oil and 45% less than coal, with a twofold reduction in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.
