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.
