Cryogenic Coil-Wound Exchangers Selected for LNG Facility
Air Products has signed an agreement to provide two sets of its proprietary LNG technology, equipment and process license for Freeport LNG’s liquefaction and export project in Freeport, Texas. The sale includes two of Air Products’ cryogenic coil wound heat exchangers and the associated equipment and technology for the production of liquefied natural gas at the facility. The trains are scheduled to be on stream in 2018.
According to Jim Solomon, director of LNG at Air Products, while the technology is operating in many locations around the world, these will be among the first of the company’s exchangers to operate in the United States.
Air Products will supply its LNG proprietary AP-C3MR liquefaction technology and equipment. Its MCR main cryogenic heat exchanger will be installed at the heart of the propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant liquefaction process.
In addition to the Freeport site, Air Products is also providing the LNG technology and equipment for Dominion’s liquefaction project at its Cove Point LNG facility at Lusby, Md.
