The agreement provides a one-stop solution for proven design, procurement, construction and fabrication solutions for small-scale LNG plants in North America. It combines UOP’s process technology expertise and its UOP Russell modularized equipment offerings; Honeywell’s controls and automation solutions; and Black & Veatch’s engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, and its proven PRICO® natural gas liquefaction technology. The complete LNG plant offering will be available in 2013.
The UOP Russell factory-built product line includes modularized packaged plants that enable shale and conventional natural gas producers to remove contaminants from natural gas and recover high-value natural gas liquids used for petrochemicals and fuels. Moreover, PRICO® technology by Black & Veatch is a process to liquefy natural gas, making it available for transport via truck, rail and marine vessel. The process uses a patented, single-mixed refrigerant loop for natural gas liquefaction.
