LNG for Latin America
Rasholeen Nakra, Frost & Sullivan, Canada, explains why the LNG market is set to fuel the growth of Latin America’s energy sector.
Laura Crowdis, Brian Price and Shawn Hoffart, Black & Veatch, USA, consider how technology is driving LNG as a preferred transportation fuel.
Overcoming the obstacles
Alexander Harsema-Mensonides, Braemar Engineering, USA, reflects on the challenges that ship owners face when considering adopting LNG as a marine fuel.
Safe storage for ships
Barbara Buttinger, Cryo AB, Sweden, examines the LNG fuel gas system for a high-tech Finnish icebreaker.
Preparing for a gaseous future
The growing availability of natural gas and LNG is giving rise to new types of gas burning engine, particularly those that can operate on a combination of gas and liquid fuel. Klaus Heinrich and Ville Pellinen, ABB Turbocharging, Switzerland, discuss the effects of these developments on engine systems.
The single solution
Phillippe Heisch, Cryostar, France, explains why product standardisation is key to the emerging small scale LNG market.
The road to recovery
Dr. Gowri Krishnamurthy, Mark J. Roberts and Brian K. Johnston, Air Products and Chemicals Inc., USA, examine refrigerant conservation and recovery in LNG facilities.
Sharing the load
Wayne Jacobson, Compressor Controls Corp., USA, looks at the importance of controlling parallel refrigeration compressors in LNG applications.
Colder...longer...with safer insulation
Anatoli Kogan, Lydall Performance Materials, USA, discusses why cryogenic insulation is an important part of the cryogenic transport, storage and piping system.
Shining the light
Ankur Jariwala, Cameron Process Systems, USA, presents a compact and energy efficient pretreatment option for FLNG projects.
Freeing Freeport LNG
Matthew von Schilling, Ausenco, Canada, outlines how a simulation study helped Freeport LNG prove that it could operate simultaneously as an LNG import and export terminal.
Striving for purity
Ralph Weiland, Nate Hatcher, and Scott Alvis, Optimized Gas Treating, Inc., USA, analyse the effects of a bulge pinched CO2 absorber in an LNG plant.
Making the difference
Abhilash Nair, Ian Willetts and Johan Prinsloo, Schneider Electric, USA, look at dynamic simulation of LNG liquefaction facilities.
Chiara Brighenti, Attilio Brighenti and Jacopo Biancat, Systems and Advanced Technologies Engineering S.r.l. (S.A.T.E.), Italy; and Miguel Ángel Sanz-Bobi, Institute for Research in Technology (IIT), Spain, look at ways to exploit valuable field process data to reduce the risk of emerging faults and shutdowns.
