Micro LNG Plant
Small-Mid Scale LNG plant is beneficial for plant operator / investor due to its lower investment cost and smaller risks. Also, it is easier to secure product off takers and suitable for energy supply in remote areas where gas pipeline is not available.
Through the rich experience and expertise accumulated in the past EPC implementation of more than 40% (calculated by capacity) LNG plants, greenfir provides customers with the most feasible small and medium-sized LNG solutions.
Low Investment Cost
The LNG business requires a lot of engineering, construction, and operating investment. GreenFir's small and medium-sized LNG provides lower capital expenditures and operating expenses with an optimized design method, which provides new opportunities for new investors in the small and medium-sized LNG business. The key is to reduce the initial investment cost in order to achieve the feasibility of the project.
It will take many stages and long engineering, procurement, and construction periods for LNG projects. Recovering investments in shorter time scale is always crucial for investors. GreenFir Small-Mid Scale LNG can deliver faster LNG production, contribute to shorten payback period, and improve investor returns.
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is widely used as clean energy. GreenFir owns a variety of self-developed natural gas liquefaction technologies, such as mixed refrigerant cycle (MRC) and N2 cycle. And GreenFir develops optimized single-stage mixed refrigeration (SMR), C3 pre-cooled mixed refrigeration (C3MR) and double mixed refrigeration (DMR) considering different cooling principles and working conditions.
GreenFir has specialized in the conceptual design and modularization of Micro LNG Plants since 2016, and have the proven ability to design, construct and commission small-scale LNG plants ranging in throughput from 20 to 50 tonnes per day of LNG.
● Pipeline gas liquefaction.
● Shale gas liquefaction.
● CBM liquefaction.
● Associated gas liquefaction.
● Wellhead gas recovery.
Case Study – Qingcheng Micro LNG Plant
In February 2017, GreenFir completed the engineering, manufacture, construction and commissioning of Petrochina’s micro LNG plant in Qingcheng, Gansu. GreenFir was selected after undergoing an approval process of more than 12 months, demonstrating its high level of engineering excellence in innovative design, manufacture and construction in modular style plants.
The plant, which is with 2 trains, has the capacity to produce 40 tonne per day of LNG and is designed to be run 24 hours per day, seven days per week from a remote operating facility. The Qingcheng Micro LNG Plant was a first for Gansu having been built to supply the domestic transport industry. The facility was designed and currently operates to a strict environmental standard.
Case Study – Yulin Micro LNG Plant
GreenFir completed a second 40 tonne per day micro LNG Plant located in Yulin, Shaanxi. The project follows successful completion in 2019 of an identical plant located in Lvliang, Shaanxi.
