Natural Gas Liquefier with Gas Turbine Driver
Over 90% of an LNG plant’s energy demand comes from the refrigeration compressor. Lack of electrical infrastructure or the pure economics of gas versus electricity can drive customers towards a gas turbine direct-drive compressor. Additionally, effluent hydrocarbon waste streams can be sent to the gas turbine as fuel. Cosmodyne can help guide you through this evaluation.
Pictured here is an installation where the client’s lack of medium voltage infrastructure drove the decision to use a gas turbine driver on the refrigeration compressor.
Cosmodyne has worked with globally recognized gas turbine vendors and compressor suppliers for many years to perfect this offering. Our experience allows a client to tailor the gas turbine to the fuel they have available. For example, we have designs that can make use of regeneration gas from the adsorber beds or a heavy hydrocarbon waste stream as fuel.
