Linde, Renaissance Heavy awarded work on giant Russian gas plant
Linde and Renaissance Heavy Industries have signed an EPC contract with Russia's Gazprom and its partners for an LNG plant on the Baltic Sea, Gazprom said.
Gazprom started construction of a massive gas processing complex on the shores of the Baltic Sea jointly with its partner RusGazDobycha in May.
The cluster is designed to process annually 45 billion cubic metres of natural gas, produce 13 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG), 3.6 million tonnes of ethane and up to 1.8 million tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
It is poised to become Russia's largest gas processing plant and one of the world's largest in terms of production volumes.
Gazprom said Linde and Renaissance Heavy Industries would provide the LNG plant design, supplies of equipments as well as construction. (Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin Editing by Mark Potter)
Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants
Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
