Air Products will discuss the latest innovations in LNG technology at the 27th World Gas Conference in Washington, DC, next week.
A world leader in LNG technology and equipment, the Tier One corporation has solutions for a full range of LNG plants, whether onshore or offshore, very small plants or mega trains, and in a tropical location or an arctic climate.
Conference attendees are invited to stop by Air Products’ stand 1535B to speak with an industry specialist about the company’s highly efficient, cost-effective process cycles and main cryogenic heat exchange equipment, which is the heart of an LNG facility. The company provides a wide range of products and services for the successful design, construction, start-up, and operation of an LNG facility and has shipped well over 100 large coil wound heat exchangers to plants around the world.
As part of the conference’s Industry Insights program, Air Products also will present ‘Multi-product Flexible Production Facility’ on Friday 29th June, during the session titled ‘Resilient LNG Facilities: Preparing an Asset for New Business Realities’, which will be held from 11:40am to 1:10pm in Room 146A. Dr. Annemarie Weist, Air Products process manager, will discuss a novel cryogenic liquefaction process developed to simultaneously produce multiple liquefied products, such as ethylene and ethane, in one compact facility. The flexibility of this process allows the number and type of products to easily be changed within the same equipment, allowing a single facility to easily meet changing market needs.
In a statement, Air Products said, “Our proprietary technology is vital to helping meet the world’s increasing energy needs and desire for clean energy. The company provided equipment and technology for the world’s first floating LNG facility and, more recently, a deep-water floating LNG project in Mozambique, Africa. Air Products’ LNG equipment manufacturing facility in Manatee County, Florida, provides ready access to port services and enables the company to manufacture larger LNG heat exchangers to meet market need.”
“A majority of total worldwide LNG is produced with Air Products’ technology. In support of the LNG industry, Air Products provides process technology and key equipment for the heart of the natural gas liquefaction process for large export plants, small and mid-sized LNG plants, floating LNG plants, and LNG peak shavers. Upstream, Air Products provides both nitrogen and natural gas dehydration membrane systems for offshore platforms. Downstream, Air Products provides dry inert gas generators for LNG carriers, shipboard membrane nitrogen systems, and land-based membrane and cryogenic nitrogen systems for LNG import terminals and base-load LNG plants.”
