Air Products to provide tech for Sempra’s Mexico LNG plant

US LNG equipment maker Air Products has won a contract to supply its technology including heat exchangers for Sempra’s Costa Azul export plant in Mexico.

Under the deal revealed on Monday, Air Products said it would provide its proprietary LNG technology, equipment and related process license but also advisory services to the ECA-led project.

ECA is a Sempra-led joint venture consisting of its unit IEnova and France’s Total. The venture announced a final investment decision on the $2 billion LNG project that includes one 3.25 mtpa train in November last year.

Air Products says it would build the coil wound heat exchangers for its AP-DMRTM LNG process technology at its facility in Port Manatee, Florida.

Once complete, the firm then will ship the equipment to the project terminal site in Ensenada, Mexico, where the existing regasification facility is located.

The LNG equipment will be able to produce about three million tons per annum at the location, according to Air Products.

Air Products did not disclose any financial details of the Costa Azul LNG deal.

To remind, Sempra revealed in December last year that Total purchased a 16.6% equity stake in the first phase of ECA LNG. Sempra LNG and IEnova have a 41.7% stake, each.

Earlier the same year, Total signed a 20-year deal to buy about 1.7 mtpa of LNG from the export facility.

Besides Total, ECA has secured definitive 20-year deal with Japan’s Mitsui & Co.

Additionally, a unit of TechnipFMC won a lump-sum, turn-key EPC contract for the first phase of the LNG export plant.

Sempra expects first LNG from the project in late 2024.
