In focus…Small-scale LNG technologies


Big isn’t always better’ and ‘good things come in small packages.’ These familiar sayings could be applied to the liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector, where small-scale LNG technologies are both big business and often an optimal solution that allows for quicker speed to market.

This change has seen a global explosion in the uptake of LNG, with wider accessibility and burgeoning applications allowing equipment crossovers for companies in the industrial gas industry. Small-scale LNG typically refers to production capacities of 750 tonnes per day (tpd) or under, while these plants and technologies tend to be standardised compared to mid and large-scale counterparts, all of which means there are benefits in synergy and standardisation.
