Air Products to provide LNG technology

LNG Industry,

Air Products has signed an agreement to provide two sets of its proprietary LNG technology, equipment, and process license to Freeport LNG's liquefaction and export project. The sale includes two of Air Products' main cryogenic coil wound heat exchangers and the associated equipment and technology. The trains are expected to be onstream in 2018.

"We are pleased to be supporting this project and play a significant role in what will be one of the first LNG export terminals in the US, said Jim Solomon, director of LNG at Air Products. “Air Products' LNG heat exchanger technology is operating right now at many locations around the world, however, these will be among the first of our exchangers to operate right here in the US. We look forward to continued involvement in the US export market as other projects proceed to development."

Air Products will supply its LNG proprietary C3MR™ liquefaction technology and equipment, and its MCR® Main Cryogenic Heat Exchanger will be installed at the heart of the proprietary propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant liquefaction process.

In addition to the Freeport, Texas site, Air Products is also providing the LNG technology and equipment for Dominion's liquefaction project at its Cove Point LNG facility at Lusby, Maryland.
