MetraWeather delivers customised forecasts for major project

MetraWeather delivers customised forecasts for major PNG gas project


MetraWeather | 2 April 2014


MetraWeather is delivering customised state-of-the-art weather, wave and hazard forecasts to customers in Papua New Guinea, including a PNG LNG (liquefied natural gas) project, to help increase safety and operational efficiency.
Safety is critical, with the LNG plant’s marine terminal as the designated point for loading liquefied natural gas onto ships.


“It can take 24 hours to load each vessel. Safe berthing, loading and departure are major considerations of LNG marine operations. The weather forecasting products will provide accurate real-time and forecast information to help the Project plan its operations,” said MetraWeather Business Development Manager, Peter Fisher.

With local weather forecasting focussed on public forecasts rather than specialised industrial forecasting, MetraWeather will provide the Project’s LNG Plant with detailed forecasting.

A MetraWeather meteorologist interprets weather data feeds and delivers daily briefings including wind, wave, and weather forecasts, as well as a weather threat matrix forecasting the likelihood of heavy rain, gales and lightning.
“The forecasts will help reduce downtime, increase efficiency and help improve health and safety compliance,” Fisher said.
