Siemens, Total to work on “green” LNG production

A unit of German engineering giant Siemens has entered into a deal with French energy group Total to advance new concepts for “green” liquefied natural gas production.

As part of the contract, Siemens Gas and Power is conducting studies to explore a variety of possible liquefaction and power generation plant designs, with the ultimate goal of decarbonizing LNG production.

The studies are targeting key areas, such as reducing the environmental footprint of liquefaction facilities and the associated greenhouse gas emissions, according to a Siemens statement.

Targeted areas also include plant reliability, maintainability, regulatory compliance, and development costs.

The duo will explore different concepts such as the use of gas turbine- and electric-driven compression trains in conjunction with single-mixed refrigerant and double-mixed refrigerant technologies.

Additonally, the partners will look into developing techniques to improve the efficiency of onsite power generation facilities such as heat recovery systems, inlet air chilling, supplementary firing, renewables integration, and battery storage.

The studies will also be exploring how to leverage digitalization and automation platforms to optimize plant design and achieve seamless project execution, the statement said.
