Air Products has announced an agreement with TP JGC Coral France for the supply of its proprietary cryogenic coil wound heat exchanger technology and the liquefaction process license for a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility to be located in the Indian Ocean, offshore Mozambique, Africa.
The FLNG facility being built by TP JGC Coral France, an incorporated joint venture formed by TechnipFMC and JGC Corporation, along with Samsung Heavy Industries, will utilize Air Products’ dual mixed refrigerant process. The liquefaction capacity will be 3.4 MTPA. The FLNG plant will be moored and operate on the surface above 6,500 feet of water in the Indian Ocean.
Air Products’ proprietary technology, vital to helping meet the world’s increasing energy needs and desire for clean energy, processes and cryogenically liquefies valuable natural gas for consumer and industrial use. Typically, an LNG heat exchanger can be as large as over 15 feet in diameter and 180 feet long, or about two-thirds of the size of a football field. To date, over 115 large coil wound heat exchangers have been deployed by Air Products.
