Air Products has signed an agreement with Bechtel Energy Inc. to provide its proprietary LNG process technology, equipment and advisory services to Sempra Infrastructure’s Port Arthur LNG Phase 1 project in Jefferson County, Texas.
The Port Arthur LNG Phase 1 project is designed to include two natural gas liquefaction trains, two liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tanks and associated facilities with a nameplate capacity of approximately 13 million tonnes per annum (MTPA).
Under the agreement, Air Products will provide engineering, design and manufacturing of the heat exchanger equipment for the liquefaction sections of two large trains, which will use Air Products’ proprietary AP-C3MR propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant liquefaction process technology.
In addition, Air Products will provide engineering studies and technical advisory services for the installation and startup of each LNG train. The AP-C3MR process is used to produce more LNG than any other process in the world. This process is proven, highly reliable, flexible and has become the industry standard.
