Elliott will provide three compression trains for the reactor effluent, heat pump, and propylene refrigeration duties at the new plant. The package also encompasses equipment auxiliaries.
The project located on the Chesapeake Bay in Lusby, Maryland, will produce about 5.25 MMtpy of LNG when completed in late 2017 and will be the first LNG export terminal on the US East Coast.
New product developments in the hydrocarbon processing industry.
Using smaller turbines (50 kW to 300 kW) can aid system efficiency and help conserve energy. We investigate examples in which the application of smaller steam turbines provided return on investment within two years.
FS-Elliott’s service center houses the global services group, a team of professionals responsible for providing a full portfolio of support including remote technical assistance, operation and maintenance training, and performance upgrades designed to further improve machinery operation.
The project will enable the refinery to meet the requirements set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Tier 3 clean fuels standards, according to Phillips 66.
Long-term trends in production losses, showing total loss production measured in seven biennial studies, are discussed in this article to determine if these losses are increasing or decreasing over time.
A new revamp approach for ammonia plants uses multistage integrated chilling (MIC). The MIC scheme provides an option that avoids expensive compressor upgrades for incremental improvements in ammonia production, with energy efficiency improvements up to 15%.
With a production capacity of 5,000 tpd of oxygen, the ultra-modern facility pushes the technical boundaries that have existed up to now, also with regard to efficiency, reliability and safety.
When the new liquefaction facility becomes operational in 2018, it will enable bi-directional service between the terminal and the liquefaction plant.

Engineers and designers are highly skilled individuals. Forcing them to enter design changes using tables, forms and spreadsheets is unproductive and uneconomical, and it increases the likelihood of human error—this is the way that most instrumentation software systems currently work. For too long, software vendors have denied engineers and designers the simple practicality of a graphical visual engineering interface with “drag and drop” capability and inbuilt intelligence, ensuring changes are automatically replicated into all the associated data and databases.

As low oil prices make naphtha cracking margins in Europe and Asia more competitive, are investments in new, ethane-based petrochemicals capacity in the US and Middle East becoming less attractive?
Yes, ethane cracking is less economical
No, ethane cracking is still the future
Too early to tell
