PLOTTING THE OPTIMAL APPROACH FOR LNG STORAGE SELECTION

The abundance of natural gas is creating opportunity to use liquefied natural gas (LNG) for peak shaving and to improve reliability. Evaluating plot space, siting options, and cost and schedule against project goals can help identify the right LNG storage container solution.

DRONE TECHNOLOGY REVOLUTIONIZES MAPPING OF LNG TANK COLD SPOTS

Thermal surveys of the walls of a 200-foot-tall LNG tank can be challenging. Traditional thermal detection methods are costly, time-consuming and potentially dangerous. By using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) instead, thermal LNG tank inspections can be conducted safely and efficiently, while collecting more and better data.

UPGRADES FOR LNG FACILITY CRITICAL FOR NEW YORK GAS CUSTOMERS

The National Grid Greenpoint LNG facility is an essential asset for the gas supply in downstate New York. Over time, one of the main components of the facility responsible for converting liquid into vapor required a replacement. National Grid needed a team with LNG experience to provide support services to see the project through.

ADVANTAGES OF IN-HOUSE MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION RESOURCES

Successful completion of LNG infrastructure projects requires timely delivery of critical materials. By hiring an engineer-procure-construct (EPC) team that offers in‑house fabrication, as well as engineering, permitting and construction services, LNG companies can streamline the critical path to improve project quality and efficiency.

MANAGING ONGOING MODERNIZATION TO KEEP LIQUEFYING

As Xcel Energy’s Wescott LNG facility aged, it began to experience diminished performance. To continue meeting compliance requirements and customer needs, Xcel Energy is implementing an upgrade plan that will improve the efficiency of the facility.

IDENTIFYING CONTAMINANTS IN LNG WITH A PROPER GAS ANALYSIS

When present, contaminants can pose challenges in the liquefaction process to make liquified natural gas (LNG). Some freeze, which can slow or complicate the liquefaction. Others corrode equipment or, in some cases, violate contractual pipeline and LNG quality agreements. These realities have boosted the need for accurate analysis of natural gas contaminants.

STREAMLINING LNG PLANT CONSTRUCTION WITH PROACTIVE STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT

Owner-operators need to bring liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities online to meet growing energy demand. By engaging stakeholders early, LNG companies can build collaborative relationships within diverse communities and decrease the likelihood of third-party interest groups initiating opposition activities.

WEBINAR: THE ABCs OF LNG

Liquified natural gas (LNG) is a cost-effective, flexible fuel that has been around for a long time but is undergoing a renaissance in numerous applications. The options for storage and export have drawn renewed appreciation. In this webinar we give you a grounding in the basics, examine the design considerations involved, and explore the possibilities for storage and transportation.

IDENTIFYING OPTIMAL SOLUTIONS FOR LNG LIQUEFACTION UNITS

A lot goes into developing liquefied natural gas facilities, such as selection of technology, compressor driver and heat exchange medium. Considering these major decisions during the early phases of the project can set it on a path to success.

APPLYING MIDSTREAM LESSONS LEARNED TO THE LNG INDUSTRY

As utilities develop liquefied natural gas peak shaver and satellite facilities across the U.S., they can turn to the oil and gas midstream industry for lessons on how to achieve efficient and cost-effective project delivery.

Evaluating firm fuel options to weather challenging conditions

Power disruptions in Texas due to an extreme winter storm exposed the urgency of preparing generation facilities to operate on firm backup fuels when necessary. Operators have several options to consider as they explore the feasibility of inclusion in new facilities or updating existing plants.
