Air Products’ LNG Technology for Freeport LNG

Air Products announced an agreement to provide its proprietary LNG technology, equipment, and process license for Freeport LNG Development’s Train 3 gas liquefaction and export project. The sale includes Air Products’ main cryogenic coil-wound heat exchangers and associated technology, which will be vital in the production of LNG at the facility near Freeport, Texas.

Air Products will supply its proprietary AP-C3MRTM liquefaction technology, and its MCR® Main Cryogenic Heat Exchanger will be installed at the heart of the proprietary propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant liquefaction process. Air Products technology and equipment for Train 3 is scheduled to be on-stream in 2019.

“We are pleased to have been successful in being selected as the LNG technology supplier for the third train at Freeport LNG, and proud to be able to say we are the supplier for all three trains to operate at the location”, said Jim Solomon, director – LNG at Air Products. “Similar to our Trains 1 and 2 before, we went for the tried and tested workhorse of the gas liquefaction industry – the APCI process – for our Train number 3. This technology is economic, efficient and reliable, and we look forward to our project’s start-up and operations as we fully expect these crucial phases to be free of major problems”, said Mark Mallett, Freeport LNG’s senior vice president, Operations & Projects.
