GE to minimise flaring at world's largest LNG site
17 февраля 2011 г.
In the first large-scale application of its type, GE Oil & Gas advanced compressor technology is minimising liquefied natural gas (LNG) boil-off gas flaring at LNG berths at the Ras Laffan Port, Ras Laffan Industrial City in Qatar, by making productive use of the gas that boils off during loading of the LNG carriers.
Gas that was previously boiled-off and flared during the loading of LNG carriers in Ras Laffan Port will now be collected from the LNG carriers and transferred to a Central Compression Area via large diameter stainless steel pipelines. At the Central Compression Area, GE compression units will compress the gas and send it to the LNG trains primarily for use as fuel gas.
Qatargas and RasGas are dedicated to continuously improving environmental performance. Given the scale and complexity of the LNG venture, this is a milestone boil-off gas recovery project that will enable minimisation of gas flaring to the fullest extent possible, helping conserve Qatar’s natural resources. GE’s reliable technology will be critical to project success.
