Gasconsult has awarded a contract to CB&I for development of its ZR-LNG liquefaction process.
The work is being co-funded under the British government’s Innovate UK scheme and the work will be performed from CB&I’s offices in Paddington, UK.
The work will comprise design development of the ZR-LNG process for a gas turbine driven floating LNG (FLNG) application based on multiple single train modules of nominal 1.5 million and 1 million tpy capacity.
To comply with the objectives of the Innovate UK grant regarding technology application in developing countries, the work will also include a pre-feasibility study of a land based coal bed methane (CBM) LNG plant in Botswana. This work will be performed by OTC.
Bill Howe, CEO of Gasconsult, said: “This is a major step forward for Gasconsult as the work will provide significant engineering information of relevance to project developers and allow Gasconsult to be fully responsive during the technology assessment phase of LNG projects. LNG is a preferred future energy source arising from its lower carbon and sulfur emissions than coal and oil.”
