Natural Gas to LNG Process
The facility specifications are suitable and applicable to any mid size to large landfills or small to mid size stranded Oil & Gas Wells. Thus gives us a flexible position for accelerated replication and application at future site locations.
Step 1 Gas Filtration:
The plant cleans and filters the well gas or landfill gas, removes particulates and moistures and then removes the Sulfurs and produces a clean unpurified gas for further process.
Step 2 Gas Purification:
The plant receives the filtered gas and then purifies it to Methane, 95%- 97% purity level (since the Methane is generated in the Landfill). This concentrated LNG is consistently superior to the quality of the Natural Gas otherwise transported via pipelines.
Note: The gas in the landfills is Bio Methane, which is considered a renewable source of energy.
Step 3 LNG or Liquefied Natural Gas Production:
The purified natural gas is liquefied by a cryogenic refrigeration and liquefaction process, which treats LG at approximately (-256 F). LNG production rates of up to 5,000 Gal. daily are forecasted.
Step 4 LNG Storage:
The LNG is stored in a 25,000 Gallon specialized tank for truck loading and shipment. Typical LNG truck carriers are 8,000-12,000 Gallons for larger logistical distributions.
