NextDecade, Port of Cork to develop Ireland’s FSRU project | LNG World News

Next Generation a US company will be at the forefront of supply 1/3 of Ireland's LNG needs direct via a floating plant in Cork.

Currently Ireland uses gas from Marathon field, Corrib field and imports the rest via Interconnectors from UK.

US Foreign Policy directed at Russia has been very clear as it attempts to destroy Russian Gas exports to EU.

Us directed foreigh policy targeted at Qatar is also on those lines.

US is forecast to be leading LNG supplier worldwide by 2022.
United States wants to be leading LNG supplier in the world

The safety aspects are even more worrying as a fully loaded LNG tanker plus a floating regassification unit in Cork harbour has its own security concerns.

At this stage its a fairly proven technology and there is no clamour in Cork to close the refinery which is at least as dangerous. There was a proposal a few years ago to build a LNG import facility at Tarbert but the energy regulator insisted that the importer would have to pay a levy to pay for the interconnector used by their competitors, killing the project. It will be interesting to see if a similar levy will be imposed on the Cork project.

The fully loaded LNG tanker should not be a security or safety concern. If the tanker springs a leak, its cargo will simply evaporate

With the tanker quickly becoming the world's largest icicle.
