Gas Innovations expands product line to include cryogenic, liquefied compressed ethane
HOUSTON — Texas-based hydrocarbon and specialty gas supplier has executed a truck loading agreement with Sunoco Logistics to supply ethane from Marcus Hook, PA, not only to customers in North America but also throughout the world.

In September, Gas Innovations will provide truckload quantities of high purity cryogenic ethane from Sunoco LP in Marcus Hook, PA. Sunoco is part of the Energy Transfer LP family of companies. Gas Innovations will supply North American customers by cryogenic tankers and will provide cryogenic ISO containers for the rest of the world. Gas Innovations will fill high-pressure tube trailers, ISO modules, and cylinders from this source as well at their La Porte, TX facility.
North America is rich in ethane and until now, the non-pipeline and non-ship load markets have been constrained due to a lack of available and consistent supply. As more ethane is liquefied for shipping, truckload supply of ethane will be available for the many applications requiring trucks, ISO containers, and cylinders.
Many of these ethane applications may require a test or demonstration prior to major investments in pipes, ships, or massive storage solutions. These temporary, portable, and short-term requirements will now have a solution with truckload supply.
According to GIIGNL’s 2018 Annual Report, global LNG trade expanded by 3.5 Bft3d in 2018, to 38.2 Bft3d—a record 10% increase.
Power, LNG projects drive pipeline construction in Africa
Increasing public investment in gas-fired power plants in Africa, the continuing recovery in global oil prices and persistent insecurity in key producer markets, such as Nigeria, are likely to impact gas transmission pipeline projects on the continent, even as more international companies express interest in the region’s stranded gas resources.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
