Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won yet another large order to supply compact heat exchangers to a Liquid Natural Gas plant (LNG), this time for processing of shale gas in the U.S. The order, booked in the Energy & Environment segment, is worth approximately SEK 55 million and delivery is scheduled for 2013.
The Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers will be used in a new, major gas processing facility – for shale gas – in the U.S. where they will recover and reuse heat in the gas cleaning process, thereby resulting in an energy-efficient process.
“This is our second large order, within a short period of time, from the growing gas sector. The order confirms once again that we meet the requirements from the major players in the oil and gas industry, both in terms of product performance and process knowledge”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
Did you know that… there are more than 500 natural gas processing plants in the U.S., which in total – on average – process more than 40 billion cubic feet of gas per day?
