Air Products to Provide Liquefaction Process Technology for LNG Production Facility at Qatargas II


Published:

Air Products’ new AP-X liquefaction process technology was selected by Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil for the Qatargas II Facility Expansion Project. The Air Products patented technology will make possible the world's largest process train for the production of liquefied natural gas, the company says. Air Products provides natural gas liquefaction process technology, main cryogenic heat exchange equipment, plus other key process equipment components in the AP-X process.

Each single LNG process train for the Qatargas II facility, which is located in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar, will be rated for an annual LNG production capacity of approximately 7.8 million tons per year. This production capacity is 50 percent larger than any other LNG plant currently in operation or under construction, according to Air Products. The Qatargas II expansion facility is scheduled to be on-stream in late 2007.
