Orka Energy has been shortlisted for the 2018 LNG (liquefied natural gas) Technological Innovation Award.

The LNG Technological Innovation award is presented to the company that, through technological improvement or change, has made a fundamental change in the production, transportation or regasification of LNG.

Orka Energy has been nominated for its proprietary design and installation of the first small-scale natural gas liquefication plant in Peru resulting in economic and environmental benefits for the country. It is the only US company nominated for the award.

The plant’s LNG output represents 83% of the natural gas supply available to the country’s northern regions, and 20% of the total LNG accessible to the nation.

The CWC World LNG Awards began in 2005 and recognise the achievements of companies and their executives in the LNG sector. This year’s awards will be presented on 28th November, in Lisbon, Portugal.

Other companies nominated for the award include: Shell, Golar, MOL, Inpex, CMA and CGM
