LNG is natural gas that has been refrigerated to -260°F (-162°C). It is a clear, colorless, non-toxic liquid reduced to 1/600th of its original volume making it easy to transport and store. It is the cleanest burning fossil fuel providing reductions in CO2 and eliminating emissions of SO2 and particulates.
Maximizing return on investment for LNG projects means choosing a partner that understands their complexity and is able to demonstrate engineering and manufacturing expertise and a proven track record of delivering complete solutions.
Our Know-How is the combination of a number of capabilities that make us unique in the industry and is your guarantee of a successful project outcome with minimized risk, schedule and cost.
In addition to complete engineered solutions, Chart's key cryogenic products are essential to the liquefaction, dustribution, storage and end-use of LNG. For more information please use the descriptions below to visit the respective product pages.
The virtual pipeline enables users not connected to the grid to utilize natural gas. LNG is distributed from its source, which can be an import terminal, distribution hub or liquefaction plant, in cryogenic containers to a regasification station, where it is stored and vaporized for use.
For users who are connected to the grid but looking to supplement insufficient or unreliable pipeline capacity, for example to meet additional load and seasonal variations or emergency back-up supply, the LNG virtual pipeline enables them to use the same delivery system as they're simply using stored natural gas to augment their pipeline supply. With diesel or LPG back-up a completely separate and different storage and delivery system is required.
Europe’s rapid transition away from imported pipeline gas presents a meaningful opportunity for United States shale LNG. The US’ ability to bring new liquefaction capacity on-line is due, in part, to the Modular Mid-Scale LNG concept; Chart offers a unique capability in this module market, through our patented Integrated Pre-Cooled Single Mixed Refrigerant (IPSMR®) liquefaction process coupled with our brazed aluminum heat exchanger and cold box equipment.
For regions not connected to the grid, there is added opportunity to transition to natural gas through the virtual pipeline.
Chart supports you through the project lifecycle from the earliest feasibility study all the way to ensuring your equipment continues to perform safely and reliably in the field for many years.
