According to the statement, the Air Products will provide its proprietary AP-C3MRTM natural gas liquefaction technology and equipment, as well as three of its MCR® main cryogenic heat exchangers, to be installed at the heart of the proprietary propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant liquefaction process for the three-train facility. Air Products’ technology will be integral in producing approximately 16 million tpy of LNG, and will be operational when the facility starts up in 2024.
Dr. Samir Serhan, executive vice president at Air Products, said: “Air Products is very honoured to be selected for the Golden Pass project involving ExxonMobil and Qatar Petroleum. Our company has a long and successful history of serving the needs of the LNG industry and we intend to remain the leader in LNG equipment and liquefaction technology.”
Sean Ryan, president of Golden Pass LNG, added: “We have brought together an exceptional team to implement this project, with Air Products supplying the liquefaction technology and equipment that will drive our facility.
“We are pleased to partner with the industry leader in LNG exchanger technology to bring clean energy from Texas to power the world.”
According to the statement, the Air Products’ LNG heat exchangers and related equipment for the project will be built at the facility in Port Manatee, Florida. This facility was first opened in January 2014. In October last year, the company dedicated a new LNG equipment test facility and held a ground-breaking for a facility manufacturing expansion project at the site.
Serhan concluded: “We are committed to always providing the best-in-class equipment and technology to the LNG industry, to never missing a delivery, and to exceeding all customer expectations in terms of performance and efficiency. We want customers in the LNG market around the world to know that we are prepared and not limited in our manufacturing capability when new LNG plant opportunities are announced and developed.”
