SLNG, Linde to explore CO2 liquefaction and storage facility

Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd (SLNG) and Linde Gas Singapore Pte Ltd have signed a MOU to collaboratively explore the feasibility and development of a CO2 liquefaction and storage facility, located adjacent to the SLNG Terminal on Jurong Island. 

Broadly, the project concept involves using cold energy from the SLNG Terminal’s operations to liquefy CO2, leveraging on Linde’s and SLNG’s combined expertise in carbon capture, liquefaction, as well as cryogenic storage and handling solutions. The liquefied CO2 will be stored in tanks onsite before it is eventually transported for end use. If feasible, this could be the first such facility of its kind in Singapore and the Region, where existing cold energy from SLNG is utilized to liquefy CO2, thereby directly capturing CO2, which may otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere. 

Mr Tan Soo Koong, CEO SLNG, said, “Energy Security has been and continues to be of utmost importance to SLNG. At the same time, it is also our vision to catalyze new possibilities in the energy transition and this includes supporting new solutions for a lower carbon future, in step with the Government’s Singapore Green Plan 2030. This project allows us to realize SLNG’s cold energy recovery objectives with a two-fold benefit – cold energy recovery with high efficiency, as well as effective liquefaction and storage to reduce CO2 emissions. We are delighted to be able to collaborate with strong and like-minded partners on this important project to help counter climate change, and create a more sustainable future for Singapore.” 

Initially, the project will target to liquefy, store and transport CO2 for the project partners, but could potentially be scaled up in the future to handle CO2 from more sources, with an open-access, multi-user concept. 

Mr Qian Wen Bin, Linde’s Asia Pacific Head of Clean Hydrogen and Decarbonization, said “Linde has been innovating technologies for carbon management for decades. We believe that the application of Linde’s knowledge and experience in carbon capture, liquefaction, and storage together with SLNG’s cold energy capability will be a key innovative and efficient enabler for Singapore’s decarbonization plans. We are very happy to work with our close partners to drive this effort.”

-Adrienne Blume
With Henry Hub (HH) natural gas prices almost twice as high year over year, as of the time of writing in late October, and similarly record-high prices in Europe and Asia driving competition for LNG, the gas market is rife with tension.

-Adam Bozick
When facility owners think about plant optimization, the emphasis often is on maximizing throughput and, in many cases, that means focusing on processing equipment.

Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants

Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
