MAN and Woodside join forces on scalable LNG tech


Germany company MAN Energy Solutions has partnered with Australian liquefied natural gas (LNG) pioneer Woodside Energy for a small-to-mid scale LNG production solution.

The solution is known as Factory LNG and involves a 0.05 Mtpa (million tonnes per annum) unit, the same size as a 40-foot ISO shipping container. The unit will use MAN’s HOFIM high-speed, oil-free, integrated motor-compressor technology.

Flexible layout options and a 10 year low-to-no touch maintenance guarantee makes the Factory LNG highly adaptable and the partners believe that the technology could be able to unlock liquefaction capabilities at locations around the globe.
