Air Products secures Port Arthur LNG gig

US LNG equipment specialist Air Products has secured a contract from compatriot Bechtel to provide its proprietary LNG process technology, equipment, and advisory services for the first phase of Sempra’s Port Arthur LNG export project in Texas.

LNG player Sempra Infrastructure, a unit of Sempra, took a final investment decision on March 20 for the first phase of its Port Arthur LNG export project worth about $13 billion.

Bechtel won the EPC contract which includes building two trains with a total capacity of about 13 million tonnes per annum and two storage tanks with a capacity of 160,000 cbm.

Following the decision, Bechtel now awarded this contract to Air Products.

Under the agreement, Air Products will provide engineering, design, and manufacturing of the heat exchanger equipment for the liquefaction sections of two large trains, which will use its proprietary AP-C3MR propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant liquefaction process technology.

The company’s LNG equipment manufacturing facility in Port Manatee, Florida will manufacture two main cryogenic heat exchangers for its AP-C3MRTM LNG process technology.

In addition, Air Products will provide engineering studies and technical advisory services for the installation and startup of each LNG train.

Air Products did not provide the price tag of the contract.

Sempra Infrastructure expects to launch commercial operations at Trains 1 and 2 in 2027 and 2028.

This is the third Sempra Infrastructure project for which Air Products’ LNG technology was selected.

The first included the three trains at the Cameron, Louisiana LNG facility that have been operating with AP-C3MR technology since 2019, and the second is the Energia Costa Azul (ECA) liquefaction project in Mexico.
