ConocoPhillips advances gas liquefaction process


In response to the growing LNG market, ConocoPhillips has launched new innovations to further enhance the functionality of its Optimised Cascade natural gas liquefaction process, or OCP™ technology, which is currently licensed in 27 processing trains worldwide.

To lower total installed cost by reducing the liquefaction train’s equipment count and footprint, and greatly simplifying modularisation, the Texas-based company has developed a new plant configuration called OCP Compass. 

Developed in collaboration with Baker Hughes, the OCP Compass’ configurations are well suited for midscale LNG applications in the 1-to-3 MTPA capacity range, in either single-string or two-trains-in-one configurations to provide higher capacity, availability and turndown.

ConocoPhillips also said it will license its heavy removal unit (HRU) technology, OCP CryoSep, which recovers heavy hydrocarbons and removes components that would otherwise freeze in the liquefaction unit or lead to excessive BTU content.
