Remote full-offshore FPSO type LNG liquefaction applications can economically afford to place a low emphasis on the efficiency of the liquefaction technology compared to other features and factors. Nitrogen expansion technology or basic single mixed r
The Norwegian government has decided to terminate the full-scale carbon capture project under development at Mongstad in what it describes as “a change in direction” in its efforts to promote carbon capture and storage.
The success of Shell’s Pearl gas-to-liquids (GTL) project – which last year completed its first full year of production – has re-ignited interest in a technology that converts natural gas into premium liquid products, such as synthetic diesel,
Germany utility company E.ON has developed a novel technology that provides a possible answer to a pressing question: what to do with surplus wind-generated electricity when the wind is blowing strongly but demand is low?
These are exciting times for the LNG industry with new technologies being adopted for liquefaction and regasification, and as LNG is increasingly used in small-scale applications, particularly in transportation.
Natural gas is on its way to becoming a significant fuel in transportation by road, rail and sea. That is one of the key projections in the latest Medium-Term Gas Market Report published last month by the International Energy Agency (IEA).
