Air Products inked an agreement to supply its proprietary liquefied natural gas (LNG) process technology and equipment for a mid-scale LNG project in Fengzhen City, Inner Mongolia Province, China. Air Products’ technology will be key to a liquefaction train producing approximately 300,000 tons per year of LNG for Fengzhen Wanjie Gas Co. Ltd. The LNG facility is targeting on-stream production for the second half of 2016.
Under the agreement Air Products’ single-mixed refrigerant process technology, as well as the engineering, design and manufacturing of the heat exchanger equipment for the liquefaction section, will be supplied for the plant. The site will use Air Products’ coil-wound main cryogenic heat exchanger technology for the liquefaction process.
Air Products has now designed, manufactured and exported more than 100 coil-wound heat exchangers for LNG projects around the globe over the last four decades.
