Orbital delivers analysers to UK LNG terminal

LNG Industry,

CUI Global Inc. has announced that its wholly owned UK subsidiary, Orbital Gas Systems Ltd, has commissioned further GasPT® solutions to the largest LNG import terminal in Europe. Orbital was awarded this work directly from the terminal operator.

Orbital has confirmed that it has added the new version GasPTi-LNG to the multiple GasPT sets already installed at the LNG terminal, which is based in the UK. Qatargas has recently loaded a Q-Max LNG carrier, Mozah, with its 10 000th export cargo – which is bound for the UK Import terminal.  GasPT has played an important role in providing physical property gas data for this terminal and its operator since the first cargo received in 2009.

The GasPTi-LNG solution incorporates VE Technology® to improve the overall response time and eliminate sample blending, resulting in gas quality updates of vaporised LNG (CV/BTU/Wobbe) every 5 sec.  The device provides excellent analytical performance for the plants process control ballasting operations prior to export into the UK National Grid Transmission system. This allows tighter control of nitrogen injection without triggering mandatory gas quality excursion limits.

Orbital had designed, supplied and commissioned the existing analytical solutions through a third-party, tier-one contractor. However, in these latest installations, Orbital is contracted directly by the LNG terminal operator.  These new GasPTi-LNG systems were delivered and successfully commissioned during May 2016.

CUI Global's President and Chief Executive Officer, William Clough, said: "This deployment of our new GasPTi-LNG analysers to a major UK LNG terminal operator once again proves the reliability and viability of our analyser packages – including both the GasPT and VE technologies. It is particularly relevant in the case of imported LNG to provide quick, accurate, reliable data to the operator so as to ensure that only high-quality, properly ballasted gas enters the UK natural gas network.

"The design, manufacturing, delivery, and successful commissioning of these analysers opens up yet another market for these exciting technologies, which will increase our market penetration and enhance our shareholder value moving forward."
