Alfa Laval wins SEK 70 million natural gas order in the U.S.
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply air cooler systems to a natural gas plant in the US. The order, booked in the Energy & Process segment, has a value of approximately SEK 70 million. Delivery is scheduled for 2015 and 2016.
The air cooler systems will be used to cool the main process streams at the natural gas plant. In the cooling process natural gas liquids (NGL) are separated from the gas and then fractionated (distilled) into ethane, propane and butane. These fluids can then be used, for example, as feed stock for petrochemical plants, for household heating or as fuel for vehicles.
“This is the second large natural gas order in short time and it proves our strong position as reliable supplier to the demanding oil and gas industry,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
Did you know that… NGLs are considered “by-products” in the oil and gas industry and that gas plants extract NGLs for profit and/or to ensure production of pipeline quality natural gas?
