Chart Industries Inc. has announced that Magnolia LNG, a subsidiary company of Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd, has awarded its wholly-owned subsidiary, Chart Energy & Chemicals, Inc., contracts in excess of US$40 million for the supply of brazed aluminum heat exchangers (BAHX), Core-in-Kettle® exchangers and cold boxes for its mid-scale Magnolia LNG project, Lake Charles, Louisiana, US.
“We are delighted with this award which is further demonstration of the benefits of a multi-train, modular concept, crucial in delivering the project aim of LNG to market in 2018. Establishing standardised, repeatable plant designs, centred on Chart’s BAHX technology, also lays the foundation for the fulfillment of future projects and opportunities for LNG Limited and Chart,” commented Mike Durkin, President of Chart Energy & Chemicals.
This initial award consists of two identical trains, each with a nominal LNG production capacity of 2.0 million tpy, that combine Chart’s proven BAHX, Core-in-Kettle® and cold box technologies into an integrated system to support the delivery of North American natural gas as a competitively priced, prolific domestic and export resource. It is anticipated that a further award will be confirmed by 1Q16 for an additional two trains, which would take the overall plant capacity to 8.0 million tpy.
