Liquefied Natural Gas and Cryogenic Storage Tanks
We provide the best solution for your Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project. Chemtex has pioneered the portable pipeline of natural gas (LNG) followed by distribution for various end users including vehicle LNG fueling stations, power plants and residential use.
What is Liquefaction?
Liquefaction is the process of cooling down natural gas from ambient temps to its liquid temp of -260 degrees F. Natural Gas is liquefied for transportation purposes when a pipeline is not available. The volume of natural gas in its liquid state is about 600 times smaller than its volume in its gaseous state and in its liquid form allows for more economic and practical storage. It is also easer to transport over great distances.
Natural gas is typically transported in liquid form when vast distances, geological conditions or political issues do not allow for the construction of pipelines. Chemtex has many years of experience in LNG process technologies.
