Liquefied natural gas takes up about 1/600th the volume of natural gas in the gaseous state.
The liquefaction process involves the removal of certain components such as helium, water, acid gases, heavy hydrocarbon and dust which could cause difficulty in downstream operation.
The natural gas is then condensed into a liquid at close to atmospheric pressure (25KPa) by cooling it to approximately -163°C.
LNG is principally used for transporting natural gas to markets, where it regasified and distributed as pipeline natural gas.
Group B&T supplies different pipes and tubes in seamless stainless steel and nickel alloy for LNG application and gas processing plant (inlet and gas treatment facilities, process utilities, sulfur recovery unit construction).
