Air Products has made an agreement with TP JGC Coral France for the supply of its medium and high purity nitrogen package for a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) to be located in the Indian Ocean, offshore Mozambique, Africa. This is the company's second supply contract with TP JGC Coral France for this project.
Earlier this year, Air Products announced an agreement to supply its proprietary cryogenic coil wound heat exchanger technology and liquefaction process license for the FLNG facility. The facility, which is being built by TP JGC Coral France (a joint venture formed by TechnipFMC and JGC Corp., along with Samsung Heavy Industries), will utilise Air Products' advanced PRISM® membrane separators to produce both medium- and high-purity nitrogen. The combined nitrogen production will exceed 100 000 Nm3/d. The plant will be moored and operate on the surface above 6500 ft of water in the Indian Ocean, in a natural gas field known as Area 4 of the Coral Field.
"This project affirms Air Products' capabilities and world class position for supplying high performance membrane nitrogen generation systems for the marine and offshore market," said Hallgeir Angel, technical sales manager, Air Products AS Engineered Nitrogen Systems. "It builds on years of experience gained on similar complex projects and integrates well in Air Products' market-leading Nitrogen Package portfolio."
In support of the LNG industry, Air Products provides process technology and key equipment for natural gas liquefaction processes. Downstream, the company provides membrane nitrogen generators for LNG carriers, and land-based membrane and cryogenic nitrogen systems for LNG import terminals and base-load LNG plants.
