Air Products has signed an agreement to supply its liquefied natural gas (LNG) process technology and equipment to Technip for a mid-scale LNG project in Fengzhen City, Inner Mongolia Province, China.
Air Products' technology will be key to a liquefaction train producing approximately 300,000 tpa of LNG for Fengzhen Wanjie Gas Co. Ltd. The LNG facility is targeting onstream production for the second half of 2016.
"With this project, we continue to strengthen our position in the competitive mid-scale LNG market. Having won several projects of this size, and as a key technology supplier to Technip, we are happy to be providing our state of the art technology and liquefaction expertise for this location. We expect additional projects of this kind as the demand to make available the natural gas from more mid-size undeveloped gas reserves continues to increase," explained Warren Miller, Business Manager - LNG at Air Products.
As part of the agreement, Air Products' single mixed refrigerant process technology, as well as the engineering, design and manufacturing of the heat exchanger equipment for the liquefaction section, will be supplied for the LNG plant. The liquefaction process at this site will use Air Products' coil wound main cryogenic heat exchanger technology. The LNG produced will be distributed to the Chinese market to help meet the growing demand for clean energy.
