GTT receives an order from DSME for the tank design of one new LNG Carrier
GTT received an order from the Korean shipyard Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) concerning the tank design of one new 174,000 m3 LNG Carrier (LNGC1) on behalf of a European ship-owner.
GTT's membrane containment system NO96 GW has been selected for the design of the tanks. The delivery of the ship is planned in early 2022.
Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, commented: "We are very pleased to continue our partnership of excellence with DSME with this new order."
Corrosion Control for Gas Treating Amines: Technology Leads to Increased Amine Unit Efficiency
Accelerated basin drilling activities combined with increased fugitive gas emission capture technologies have increased trace oxygen levels in midstream natural gas. Oxygen present in concentrations even as low 30-50 ppm will cause costly corrosion-related problems in plant operations and processing equipment. One area in the plant most affected by oxygen is the amine unit. Oxygen will degrade MDEA-blended amines to corrosive amino acids and heat-stable amine salts.
Learn how a new technology from BASF combined with innovation from Nalco Water can increase amine efficiency and reduce costs associated with corrosion. This new technology will inhibit the degradation of amines from oxygen attack and control corrosion in process gas, while stabilizing the amine from degradation into bicine and other heat-stable amine salts. Together with Nalco Water’s real-time amine corrosion control program, have been proven to both mitigate oxygen degradation of amine and reduce the overall corrosivity of amine units.
