Gas Processing & LNG is Produced by Gulf Publishing Holdings LLC



Alternative fuels in European transport

European mobility and transport still rely heavily on imported oil. The European Commission has taken several measures to reduce oil dependency of transport while cutting greenhouse gas emissions. The promotion of alternative fuels such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a core component of this strategy. Together with a well-known technology partner, Bilfinger now enables local LNG production where the fuel is really needed. 


“Our Small Scale LNG plants make it possible to use various gas sources to produce LNG. We also offer pre-treatment of gas and natural gas liquefaction technology, LNG trailer loading stations and refueling stations. Moreover, the modular design helps to achieve a short delivery time and minimum construction work onsite,” says Michael Löffelmann, Executive President of Bilfinger's Engineering & Technologies division. Bilfinger thus delivers integrated solutions for projects along the entire gas value chain – from engineering and consulting services to the design, erection, operation and maintenance of industrial facilities, all from a single source. 
Natural gas – both liquefied and compressed – figures among the most promising alternative fuels in both land and sea transportation. The technology is mature and readily available with performances equivalent to petrol or diesel units and with very clean exhaust emissions. In addition, LNG offers long-distance supply flexibility without the need for interregional pipelines. 


In order to improve the access of all Member States to LNG and storage as an alternative source of gas, the European Commission passed a directive on the deployment of the necessary infrastructure for alternative fuel vehicles. Following this directive, member states are defining national policies to ensure sufficient coverage of LNG refueling points for ships and trucks. Since the increase in LNG demand is not always close to large producers or distribution networks, it is increasingly important that LNG is produced locally in a smaller capacity. This is known as Small Scale LNG (SSLNG) – an approach that Bilfinger accounts for with its SSLNG model.

Canada has abundant natural gas resources.
Executive Viewpoint: BHGE developing technology-driven solutions to reduce total cost of ownership
-Alberto Matucci
While BHGE recently won new orders for LNG projects, the company remains committed to differentiating the business, implementing solutions proven in LNG into other applications of the oil and gas value chain.
Industry Trends: Russia and US go head-to-head over EU gas market
-Eugene Gerden
Lower-cost Russian gas will likely continue to dominate the EU market in the coming years, despite the growth in oil prices, to which Russian gas prices are linked.


A New Approach to Large Medium Voltage Drives

Register Now

By attending this webinar, you will learn the benefits of using a single-channel, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) solution for applications above 9,000Hp with operating voltages from 11kV to 13.8kV. We will explore a VFD solution that does not require a step-up output transformer but still provides maximum control, environmental and motor flexibility to the end user. We will also discuss how to provide maximum reliability using power cell redundancy and the removal of water cooled components. The topics covered in the webinar include:
•A brief review of the multi-cell M2C topology
•A review of the physical implementation and the advantages it offers to the end user
•A presentation of the various implementations and ratings available for use on typical pump, compressor and fan applications.
