Air Products has received an LNG heat exchanger order from Petronas for a major LNG project in Malaysia, the companies announced on Monday.

Air Products' SplitMR liquefaction process and technology was selected and will be supplied to the Petronas LNG Train 9 Project. This project will produce 3.6 million tpy of LNG and is an expansion of the existing Petronas LNG complex in Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia.

For 20 years, Air Products has supplied multiple LNG trains, technology and equipment to the land-based Petronas Bintulu facility, with the first train becoming operational in 1983.

Overall, Air Products' LNG technology and equipment is currently employed in the facility's eight existing production trains designed to produce 25.7 million tpy of LNG. Production of LNG will increase to 29.3 million tpy via the additional ninth train with Air Products involvement at the Bintulu facility, targeted for startup by the end of 2015.

"Air Products relationship with PETRONAS continues to grow with this large-scale equipment order," said Jim Solomon, director of LNG for Air Products.

"We believe this new order is a result of the proven performance of our technology and our decades of working with Petronas. In LNG industry development around the globe, Petronas is a major player, and we take pride in providing our leading technology to assist in their success with these major projects."

Air Products says a majority of total worldwide LNG is produced with its technology. Air Products has now designed, manufactured and exported 100 coil wound heat exchangers for LNG projects around the globe over the last four decades.
