Dresser-Rand Makes Major Move Into Gas Liquefaction


Published:

Dresser-Rand has announced the successful operation of its newly developed small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) production system, named LNGo.

“We are very excited about this technology for small-scale LNG production, which allows for very small stand-alone plants that are portable and can be moved to support changing requirements and needs,” President and CEO Vincent Volpe Jr. said. “The standard LNGo plants are sized to produce approximately 6000 gallons (22,712 L) of LNG per day.”

Dresser-Rand designed, constructed and commissioned its demonstration plant, which in December reached a milestone with the initial production of LNG. Now, extended performance and endurance tests are being performed as the final step prior to full market release.
