Mexico Pacific to double LNG processing capacity at proposed plant
U.S.-based Mexico Pacific Ltd said on Tuesday it plans to double the potential capacity of its proposed LNG project in Puerto Libertad, on Mexico's west coast.
The project now aims to produce 28 MMtpy of LNG from six gas-processing trains, up from the original 14 MMtpy from three trains, Chief Executive Douglas Shanda told Reuters. The privately-held developer is looking to have financing approvals for the first two trains in the second quarter, he said.
“We've put together the development plans to go ahead and start filing for the permitting,” Shanda said. First delivery from the Puerto Libertad LNG plant is expected in the second half of 2025.
The company has said it secured agreements for supplying 14 MMtpy through a MOU with two or more parties. It has declined to identify the parties pending signed agreements.
"We're working to convert those to binding offtake agreements now," Shanda said.
The gas processing/LNG sector is investing in new technologies to mitigate carbon emissions from both operations and its supply chain.
Industry Focus: Maximizing the performance of your ETRM system
-Teresa Kroh, Brad York
Energy trading and risk management (ETRM) systems are vital for the support of business processes associated with trading energy commodities such as crude oil, refined products, natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs) and electric power, as well as facilitating the movement and delivery of those energy commodities and associated risk management activities.
-Oz Rodriguez, Catriona Penman
More than 100 participating countries at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) signed the Global Methane Pledge, in which they agreed to take action to reduce methane emissions at least 30% by 2030 vs. 2020 levels.
Optimizing Gas Distribution: Accounting for Changeovers, Regulators, and More
Gas distribution systems are critical to the effective operation of many industrial facilities around the world. Despite the importance of these systems, however, opportunities to improve their performance and cost-effectiveness are often missed or misunderstood. Increasing changeover pressure may seem like a good way to improve system flow, for example, but it often does so at the expense of bottled gas. Adding regulators may help you control supply pressure, but it also adds cost to your system. So, how do you know what the ideal gas distribution setup is for you?
Attend this webinar to:
- Gain a basic understanding of the fluid dynamics that affect pressure control in gas distribution systems, learning to interpret flow curves and recognize phenomena like lockup, droop, and supply pressure effect (SPE)
- Learn how inlet pressure affects regulator performance and when to specify certain regulator types and configurations to effectively control gas system pressures
Understand the inherent trade-offs between gas utilization and flow capacity and how to select both the right changeover pressure and automatic changeover panel design for your operations.
