10 Marine Compressed Natural Gas

11 What is Marine CNG?

12 Possible CNG Application

13 Project Concept



16 Fewer Assets - Transferable Assets Delivery Chain Capital Cost Comparison ($US millions) (Source - Wood Mackenzie) LNGCNG Gathering system / Liquefaction / Storage / Jetty $3,000$100 Loading Buoy(s)$0$50 Ship(s)$440$900 Unloading Jetty / Storage / Regas$500$100 Unloading Buoy(s)$0$50 Total Capital Cost$3,920$1,200

17 SIGALPHA - 1965 Columbia Gas commissioned first CNG ship “Bottle-type” Tested around New York Harbor Two major constraints: – ASME standards drove cost of steel pressure vessels too high; – Natural gas traded at $0.60 and trended downward Columbia Gas

18 TransCanada CNG Technologies Ltd.

19 EnerSea Transport LLC


21 Knutsen Group

22 Sea NG Corporation

23 CNG Projects Myanmar to India Proponent – GAIL Status – Expression of Interest Q1, 2006

24 CNG Projects Tanzania to Kenya – Proponent – Artumas Group Inc. – Status – awarded FEED to TransCanada in April

25 CNG Projects Oman to Pakistan – Proponent – Progas – Status – Pre-FEED

26 CDTech Example Gasoline desulphurization technology Unproven at commercial scale (c1999) Canada’s largest refiner invest in technology to meet statutory requirements for low sulphur Why? The technology proponent presented creative commercial terms

27 Summary CNG for a Small Field Application: Few fixed assets Reduced capital costs Scalable and transferable
