Honeywell has announced that Venture Global LNG Inc. will use a series of technologies from Honeywell UOP to remove various contaminants from natural gas to applicable LNG specification prior to liquefaction at its Plaquemines LNG export facility in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, US.
Honeywell UOP will provide engineering, procurement and fabrication services for the LNG pretreatment units which, when completed, will pretreat feed gas for the facility which will produce LNG for export to markets in Asia, Europe and other locations. In 2019, Venture Global selected Honeywell Modular LNG pretreatment technology for its Calcasieu Pass Export facility.
"With this project, Honeywell UOP is helping Venture Global LNG develop a facility that provides a low-cost supply of LNG by using large-scale high-performance equipment. Lean feed gas observed in a good portion of US pipeline poses some unique challenges and UOP’s innovative technologies provide a reliable and cost-effective solution," said Laura Leonard, Vice President and General Manager of Honeywell UOP’s Process Technologies business.
"Honeywell UOP is an established leader in advanced proprietary technologies for gas pretreatment, and we are pleased to build on the success of Calcasieu Pass and once again partner with them on this critical project," said Mike Sabel, CEO of Venture Global LNG. "These technologies are proven and reliable."
The project will include a Honeywell UOP Mercury Removal Unit (MRU) and multiple trains each consisting of an Acid Gas Removal Unit (AGRU) and SeparSIV Unit. Taken together, these modular units will remove mercury, carbon dioxide, sulfur, water and heavy hydrocarbons to applicable LNG specification from 1.6 billion ft3/d of natural gas so it can be liquefied and safely transported to customers on ocean-going vessels.
