LNG Industry,

Honeywell has announced that Venture Global LNG, Inc. will use a series of technologies from Honeywell UOP to remove various contaminants from natural gas before commencing liquefaction at its Calcasieu Pass LNG export facility in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, US.

According to the statement, Honeywell UOP will provide engineering, procurement and fabrication services for the facility. Once complete, the facility will produce 10 million tpy of LNG for export to markets in Asia, Europe and elsewhere.

Ben Owens, vice president and general manager of Honeywell UOP’s Gas Processing and Hydrogen business, said: “With this project, Honeywell UOP is helping Venture Global LNG build a facility that provides the lowest-cost supply of LNG by using large scale high-performance equipment.

“By delivering this technology in modular form, we can reduce construction and installation costs compared with traditional field-constructed systems.”

Bob Pender, co-CEO of Venture Global LNG, added: “Honeywell UOP is an established leader in advanced proprietary technologies for gas pretreatment, and we’re pleased to be partnered with them on this critical project.

“These technologies are proven and reliable, and the delivery of those technologies in modular form provides better quality and adherence to delivery schedules.”

The project will feature a Honeywell UOP mercury removal unit (MRU) and three separate trains, each of which will consist of an acid gas removal unit (AGRU) and molecular sieve dehydration unit. Combined, these modular units will remove water, mercury, carbon dioxide and sulfur from 1.6 billion standard ft3/d of natural gas so that it can be liquefied and safely transported to customers on ocean-going vessels.
