Chart Industries will provide heat exchangers for the Qatar Liquefied Gas Company Limited (II) Plant expansion, to help fulfil Air Products’ contract with them.

The Energy and Chemicals Division of Chart will supply multiple large brazed aluminium plate fin heat exchangers.

The order from Air Products and Chemicals Inc. is for the Qatargas II LNG Facility Expansion Project at Ras Laffan, a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil Qatargas (II) Limited.

The plate fin heat exchangers will be used in the nitrogen refrigeration system of Air Products’ new AP-XTM natural gas liquefaction process.

Qatar’s North Field was discovered in 1971 and is believed to hold 20% of the world’s proven gas reserves. Its proven reserves of recoverable non-associated gas exceed 900 trillion standard cu ft (TCF).

Chart Industries designs and manufactures aluminium plate fin heat exchangers for a variety of applications with maximum design pressures of up to 2300 psig. Shipment of the heat exchangers is planned for early 2005.
