Petronas awards Linde a contract for mid-scale LNG plant
MUNICH -- Linde has received an order for a mid-scale LNG plant from Malaysia LNG a subsidiary of Petronas. The new boil-off gas re-liquefaction facility has a maximum design capacity of 1,840 tpd of LNG and will be located in the Bintulu LNG complex.
Dr. Aldo Belloni, member of the Executive board of Linde, said: "This is the latest in a series of mid-scale LNG projects for Linde with particularly demanding technical features."
Linde' s Engineering Division will perform detail engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the plant. Linde' s proprietary LNG process and core cryogenic heat exchanger has been customized to re-liquefy boil off gases from LNG storage and ship loading and to accommodate large variations in nitrogen content, flow rate and temperature. Linde' s customized process will also enable Malaysia LNG to minimize flaring. The new plant is expected to go on stream end of 2014.
