This Webinar presents the need for natural gas liquefaction (LNG), the LNG value chain, and compares several technologies such as the PRICO® single mixed refrigerant process.  The focus is on LNG processes between 0.5 and 6.0 MM tonne/yr.  The effects of equipment type, compressor driver selection, location (on- or off-shore), and feed gas contaminants are discussed.  Technologies for vaporizing LNG are presented.
Those looking to evaluate LNG technology and projects would benefit from this Webinar.  It is intended to provide a general overview of the main processes utilized.  The presentation focuses  on both new entrants to the LNG market, as well as non-technical experienced professionals in the natural gas and LNG industries wishing to gain a better understanding of process engineering systems.
