Texas LNG selects Honeywell technology for new LNG facility

HOUSTON, US: Honeywell International Inc said that its natural gas technology and process automation has been selected by Texas LNG, a Houston-based energy company, to remove contaminants from natural gas in preparation for liquefaction and export to customers around the globe.

The two-phase project, located on the north shore of the Port of Brownsville’s deep-water ship channel, will produce 4 million tonne of liquefied natural gas (LNG) beginning in 2020.

“Honeywell’s integrated solution of advanced gas processing technology, combined with automation and control systems, offers a streamlined approach to project execution that helps minimize project time, cost and risk. This approach will be critical in helping the project meet operational and business readiness goals at startup,” said John Gugel, VP and general manager, Honeywell UOP’s gas processing and hydrogen business.

“As an independent liquefaction operator in a competitive environment, bringing on board a company like Honeywell with such broad and integrated capabilities – proven in LNG – adds significant credibility and value to our venture,” said Langtry Meyer, chief operating officer, Texas LNG.

Texas LNG will use Honeywell’s UOP Amine Guard FS process to reduce acid gas to low levels and its proprietary adsorbents to remove water, mercury and sulphur from the natural gas, which is necessary for LNG transport.

More than 40 percent of treated LNG in the world is processed using Amine Guard FS technology. Honeywell UOP adsorbents can selectively adsorb contaminants by size and polarity, making them efficient agents for drying and purifying liquids and gases. The company’s GB series and HgSIV series adsorbents can be used in a number of combinations to remove mercury and minimize costs, Honeywell said.

Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) will serve as the integrated main automation contractor (I-MAC).

“With today’s large capital projects, leading technology companies must deliver value that goes beyond just providing technology on time and within budget. Honeywell is going even further and transforming the way major projects are designed and delivered,” said Pieter Krynauw, vice president for HPS’s projects and automation solutions business.

“For this project, Honeywell’s integrated approach included consulting on FERC FEED, providing integrated technologies, solutions and services that will help the plant start up and reach optimum production faster, and implementing operations and supply chain optimization to exceed production plans,” he added.
