Chart's nitrogen cycle liquefaction technology is simple to operate and eliminates the the need for hydrocarbon refrigerants, which makes it ideal for remote areas. Integrated Pre-cooled Single Mixed Refrigerant (IPSMR®) offers improved process efficiency versus other mixed refrigerant processes.

Brazed aluminum heat exchangers provide optimal thermal performance and operating efficiency versus other heat exchanger types and are at the heart of our standard and modular plant solutions and process technologies.

Modular Plant Solutions for Mid Scale LNG

Chart’s mid-scale modular model challenges the traditional paradigm that a large baseload LNG facility provides the best economy of scale.

The development and construction of a baseload facility requires multiple billions in financing as well as many years planning, permitting and construction. In contrast to the risk profile and upward CAPEX Chart's mid-scale LNG solutions use multiple, smaller modular LNG trains that allow clients to scale projects according to market conditions by expand capacity as demand grows. Modular solutions are quicker to market and thereby generate faster revenues for stakeholders.
