Gas Processing/LNG

Optimize LNG production through contaminant mitigation—Part 2

Wines, T. H., Pall Corp.; Mokhatab, S., Consultant; Trifilieff, O., Pall France

The production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) requires a number of stages to effectively purify the feed gas. These stages are essential to maintain continuous operation and to meet product specifications. Liquid and solid contamination issues are common in many feed gas purification operations and can cause severe problems with equipment fouling, leading to additional expenses in maintenance and equipment repair, reduced production capacity and even unscheduled shutdowns.

The future of LNG—Part 2

Nichols, Lee, Hydrocarbon Processing Staff

Over the past several years, new gas processing/LNG capacity has surged in nearly every region. Growth on both the supply and demand sides has resulted in the announcement of billions of dollars of capital investment around the world. Millions of tons of new LNG import and export capacity have begun operations, with hundreds of millions of tons still under development.
