Adriatic Liquid Natural Gas Project

Adriatic Liquid Natural Gas Project

American Multinational Oil & Gas Corporation | Adriatic Sea


The project site was located 15 km off the coastline in the Northern Adriatic Sea and is the first offshore gravity based structure (GBS) for unloading, storing and regasifying liquefied natural gas. Additionally, there are large temperature gradients within the concrete structure to deal with.


nVent RAYCHEM skin-effect heat tracing system (STS) provided heat reliably, safely, and with the lowest installed cost. With the use of STS, the amount of electric heat trace circuits were reduced from 376 to 16 while the total length of power distribution cabling was reduced by 87,400 m, when compared to a system with traditional heating cables.
