Overview

Gasfin is a provider of mid-scale LNG infrastructure under long term contract. We combine proven technology, know-how and finance to offer our clients a right-sized LNG infrastructure service fully compatible to the global LNG chain without the need for upfront investment.

With the resources to scope, design, finance, deliver and operate mid-scale LNG infrastructure we are your one stop mid-scale LNG infrastructure provider.




Background

We have our roots in cryogenic gas engineering, where our engineering affiliates TGE Marine and TGE Gas have designed and delivered hundreds of cryogenic gas vessels and terminals across the globe since 1980. Both TGE Gas Engineering GmbH and TGE Marine AG (formerly united as Suez Tractebel Gas Engineering) are world leaders in their respective cryogenic engineering niches.

Gasfin, incorporated in 2009 by former executives and significant shareholders in TGE Marine and TGE Gas, seeks to develop, own and operate mid-scale LNG infrastructure. Gasfin differentiates itself as an infrastructure provider by:

  • Leveraging the depth of LNG engineering expertise of TGE Marine and TGE Gas to ensure competence at every stage and in every size of the LNG value chain, both offshore and onshore
  • Offering a single point of contact and responsibility for the complete project, from inception through operations including the technical development, permitting, financing, construction, operations and asset management
  • Working closely with our partners to achieve operational excellence, low cost fabrication and competitive financing
