Growing Australia’s FLNG Supply Chain
The report “Growing Australia’s FLNG supply chain: Potential opportunities for the Australian supply chain to participate in servicing the needs of floating LNG facilities” which I produced for the University of Western Australia and The Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA) was released on Thursday 11th May 2017.
The report looks at the life cycle of a major resources facility (in this instance a FLNG facility) to identify how and where Australian organisations can access the supply chain and what they need to be aware of to do so. While the report specifically considers opportunities associated with an FLNG, many of the findings and recommendations are common across the LNG and other energy resources industries.
This report is accompanied by work undertaken for the same clients by Deloitte Access Economics, who looked at the economic impact of FLNG on the Australian economy and an overview of the two reports produced by UWA.
The report proposes a number of recommendations for all parties involved in such a facility, including the operators, the suppliers, government and those involved in the design of facilities like this to find ways to improve the strength of the local industry that will be needed to support these facilities into the future.
