Gas Processing & LNG is Produced by Gulf Publishing Holdings LLC



US Industry Metrics

A. Blume, Editor

As of mid-January, forecasts for cold weather were supporting gas demand and prices in the US Northeast. Gas plant production of NGL, LPG, ethane and propane was still hovering near yearly highs as of October 2018, according to the latest reported data from the EIA. Meanwhile, US LNG exports in December 2018 set a record of 36 exported cargoes, after Train 5 at Sabine Pass and Train 1 at Corpus Christi began producing LNG and shipped their first cargoes. At present, seven LNG trains are operating in the US (five trains at Sabine Pass, one at Cove Point and one at Corpus Christi). Three more liquefaction projects are expected to enter service in 2019.

By attending this webinar, you will learn the benefits of using a single-channel, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) solution for applications above 9,000Hp with operating voltages from 11kV to 13.8kV. We will explore a VFD solution that does not require a step-up output transformer but still provides maximum control, environmental and motor flexibility to the end user. We will also discuss how to provide maximum reliability using power cell redundancy and the removal of water cooled components. The topics covered in the webinar include:
•A brief review of the multi-cell M2C topology
•A review of the physical implementation and the advantages it offers to the end user
•A presentation of the various implementations and ratings available for use on typical pump, compressor and fan applications.
