Air Products and Kiewit Energy Company have announced an agreement in which the two companies will work together to pursue smaller-sized LNG projects in North America.

The two companies will seek project opportunities for the production of up-to-500,000 gallons per day (GPD) of LNG using Air Products’ proprietary natural gas liquefaction technologies and equipment.

Air Products and Kiewit believe the cooperation will provide potential customers with a one-stop shop and a rapid response to project opportunities.

Customers will benefit from the strength of Air Products’ technology experience in the LNG industry combined with Kiewit’s expertise in construction and plant equipment offerings.

“Through this arrangement Air Products and Kiewit will offer a unified approach to customers in this market. As a team we will be able to provide lump sum turnkey offerings that will be very attractive to potential customers,” said Larry Balascak, LNG Commercial Manager at Air Products.

“We are very pleased to be working closely with Kiewit and believe our collaboration will be well received by customers considering smaller LNG facilities.”

Prior to signing the current agreement, the two companies won an LNG project working together, for which Air Products will supply its LNG liquefaction and storage technology to Kiewit, who will be responsible for overall engineering and construction of the facility.

The single production train will be capable of producing approximately 235,000 GPD of LNG for an LNG peak shaver facility in the US. Air Products’ supplied LNG technology and equipment for that project is to be operational in 2017.
