Industrial Gases Linde to Work on Malaysian LNG Plant for Petronas
Gas specialists Linde have received an order for a mid-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant from Petronas subsidiary Malaysia LNG. The new boil-off gas re-liquefaction facility has a maximum design capacity of 1,840 tons of LNG per day and will be located in the Bintulu LNG complex in Sarawak, East Malaysia.
Munich/Germany – "This is the latest in a series of mid-scale LNG projects for Linde with particularly demanding technical features. We came off as winners in a highly competitive bidding process, reaffirming our design and engineering expertise and cost competitiveness in the growing natural gas liquefaction market," stated Professor Dr. Aldo Belloni, member of the Executive Board of Linde.
Linde's Engineering Division will perform detail engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the plant using proprietary technology of the German gas specialist. Linde's proprietary LNG process and core cryogenic heat exchanger has been customized to re-liquefy boil-off gases from LNG storage and ship-loading and to accommodate large variations in nitrogen content, flow rate and temperature. Linde's customized process will also enable Malaysia LNG to minimize flaring. The new plant is expected to go on stream end of 2014.
