GAS PROCESSING AND LNG PLANTS
Liquefying natural gas cooling is required to cryogenic temperatures of approximately -160°C. This is to enable transportation by cargo ships or road trucks as, in this condition; its volume is only 1/600 of the gaseous volume at atmospheric pressure. Similarly, feed gas requires contaminant removal before it enters the cold box and the processed gas must comply with specifications for pipeline natural gas, CNG, or LNG.
CNG - COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS
Due to its nature, it is possible to deploy CNG for stranded gas wells or justify commercial demand of small flow rates of gas below 5 MMscfd. At retail outlets, LNG is an input for the production of CNG through high-pressure vaporization of pressurized liquid. For a country like Nigeria significant savings are involved compared to diesel.
Kiakia Gas provides advice across the entire value chain; from gas supply, pipelines and liquefaction plants to shipping, terminals, trading and gas marketing.
Associated gas that is being flared can be processed into Gas liquids that can be sold to the domestic market. The engineering team at Kiakiagas has sufficient experience in end to end solutions that can eliminate flaring and sell the gas to paying customers from upstream operators.
