Sulawesi is a K-shaped island north-east of Java and the location of the world's newest LNG plant, the first joint liquefaction project involving Indonesia, Japan and South Korea and set to come on stream soon.
Global LNG trade will grow rapidly to 2020 as Australia emerges as the world’s largest LNG exporter. New LNG projects will triple Australia’s export capacity and double total gas natural production, but lower prices will temper export values.
Liquefied natural gas has grown from almost nothing in 1970 to the current 10 percent of the global gas trade, meaning that the LNG growth rate has been much higher than that of natural gas as a whole, which in turn has been much higher than total primary energy.
A contract has been signed between the AFCONS-SENER LNG Construction Projects joint venture and India’s H-Energy to build a new LNG import terminal in the northwest Indian state of Maharashtra.
Integration of rotating equipment into the liquefaction process is a key component in the design of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility. Decisions on the choice of drivers as well as the arrangement of drivers and compressors in the liquefaction process will impact the plant performance as well as other aspects of the project, such as turndown, efficiency, and maintenance.
Moves to put in place clear and unambiguous rules and guidelines for LNG fuel are helping shipowners to opt for this clean and efficient fuel source
