Dresser-Rand to Offer Small Scale LNG Technology
Thursday, October 25, 2012
Dresser-Rand Co. plans to offer a skid-mounted liquefied natural gas (LNG) production process with capacities as low as 5700 L/d, which it said is much smaller than any other commercially available LNG process.
The units would use Expansion Energy’s VX Cycle LNG technology along with Dresser-Rand engines and compressors. The units could produce LNG at the fueling station or the wellhead, eliminating the need to truck LNG from large, centralized plants to smaller fueling depots.
“We presently believe that the market for this technology will be in the range of US$100 to US$200 million within just the next two to three years, and will continue to grow robustly beyond that,” said Brad Dickson, vice president and chief marketing officer.
The units could produce LNG from flared gas or from wells without pipeline connections. They could make LNG to fuel drilling rigs, long-haul trucks, delivery fleets, buses, ships, barges, ferries, railroad locomotives and construction and mining equipment.
