Expansion at the KLAW LNG Technology Center
KLAW LNG, the market and technical leaders in the design, manufacture, and application of ship-to-ship and bunkering LNG transfer systems has expanded its manufacturing and test facilities at the Great Yarmouth Technology Centre.
Signum Technology is committed to ensuring KLAW LNG continues to be the industry leader in LNG hose transfer systems. This significant additional investment has been made to support the growing customer demand for KLAW LNG transfer systems.
The investment is spread across various parts of the Great Yarmouth facility from manufacturing and assembly to systems testing. This includes:
Horizontal CNC Lathe
Hi-TECH 850 provides a reliable precision production resource for the manufacture of KLAW LNG 8” and 10” Cryogenic High Flow Emergency Release Couplings.
LNG ERC assembly clean room and low-temperature testing
A dedicated clean assembly room has been created to fully assemble and test Cryogenic ERCs. Each valve has an ambient gas seat test and shell test followed by a low temp shell and seat test at -140 degrees C.
System FAT area
Additional workshop space is being developed in Great Yarmouth currently to allow expansion of the KLAW LNG offering and accommodate full acceptance testing.
Signum continues to invest in skilled workshop personnel and engineering staff to support order fulfillment and in-house manufacture of safety-critical components. To keep pace with demand, additional project and application engineers are also being added to the KLAW LNG design team at the Westbury UK Technology Centre.
KLAW LNG transfer systems provide offshore hose LNG transfer in ship-to-ship, shore-to-ship and bunkering. KLAW LNG Emergency Release Systems minimize the risk of LNG spillage by shutting down flow of LNG when an emergency occurs during transfer.
According to GIIGNL’s 2018 Annual Report, global LNG trade expanded by 3.5 Bft3d in 2018, to 38.2 Bft3d—a record 10% increase.
Power, LNG projects drive pipeline construction in Africa
Increasing public investment in gas-fired power plants in Africa, the continuing recovery in global oil prices and persistent insecurity in key producer markets, such as Nigeria, are likely to impact gas transmission pipeline projects on the continent, even as more international companies express interest in the region’s stranded gas resources.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
