Technip Energies and Baker Hughes to collaborate on a 1 to 2 MMtpy range modularized LNG solution
Technip Energies and Baker Hughes announced Thursday an MoU that sets the groundwork for their cooperation on the joint development of a new above 1 and up to 2 MMtpy range LNG modularized solution for the onshore market.
With the ambition to reduce time- to-market for LNG to meet today’s energy demand, this joint development aims to provide an additional offering to the two companies’ respective proprietary LNG modularized solutions: Baker Hughes’ 1 MMtpy range LNG Mid-scale Modular Solution (MMS), with a production capacity of 0.8 to 1 MMtpy, and Technip Energies’ “SnapLNGTM” with a production capacity of 2 to 3 MMtpy.
Technip Energies and Baker Hughes are recognized industry leaders in the LNG space. The agreement builds on their long-standing collaboration and proven track record of executing LNG projects, recognizing the important growth in mid-size LNG as demand increases for modular LNG projects capable of generating more gas capacity.
Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, stated: “Cooperating in advancing technology in LNG with our long-term partner Baker Hughes is an important step for the energy industry and for our clients. The combination of our expertise, modular approach and references will enable shorter delivery times and better affordability. Importantly, it reflects Technip Energies’ commitment to deliver low-emission liquefaction solutions through electrification and the elimination of fugitive emissions to accelerate the energy transition”.
Lorenzo Simonelli, Chairman and CEO of Baker Hughes, said: “This agreement is a milestone in our relationship with Technip Energies, and it is mutually beneficial to both companies, leveraging our respective technology expertise and proven track record in the LNG space while maximizing benefits for our customers. LNG will continue to play a key role to Press Release Paris, November 17, 2022 solve the energy trilemma, and the ability to accelerate time-to-production through modularized solutions can be a differentiator.”
Technip Energies’ portfolio already includes SnapLNGTM, a modularized compact and fully electrified solution for the 2 to 3 MMtpy, which provides greater certainty around both costs and schedule.
It covers the liquefaction as well as the necessary pre-treatment and utilities units. SnapLNGTM highlights Technip Energies’ experience of more than a decade in successfully designing and delivering LNG modular projects and is particularly suited for low-to-zero carbon footprint LNG developments.
Baker Hughes has provided plug-and-play modular solutions for LNG for over 10 years, catering to different-sized projects. Its 1 MMtpy range LNG Mid-scale Modular Solution (MMS) provides a flexible, standardized, and scalable solution for lowering the carbon footprint of the liquefaction process and faster time to LNG.
Modern society would not be possible without the use of pipelines to transport natural gas, crude oil and finished products to demand centers.
Optimizing Gas Distribution: Accounting for Changeovers, Regulators, and More
Gas distribution systems are critical to the effective operation of many industrial facilities around the world. Despite the importance of these systems, however, opportunities to improve their performance and cost-effectiveness are often missed or misunderstood. Increasing changeover pressure may seem like a good way to improve system flow, for example, but it often does so at the expense of bottled gas. Adding regulators may help you control supply pressure, but it also adds cost to your system. So, how do you know what the ideal gas distribution setup is for you?
Attend this webinar to:
- Gain a basic understanding of the fluid dynamics that affect pressure control in gas distribution systems, learning to interpret flow curves and recognize phenomena like lockup, droop, and supply pressure effect (SPE)
- Learn how inlet pressure affects regulator performance and when to specify certain regulator types and configurations to effectively control gas system pressures
Understand the inherent trade-offs between gas utilization and flow capacity and how to select both the right changeover pressure and automatic changeover panel design for your operations.
