OK, right off the bat, I like that. Modularisation is something the industry needs and it will lower costs. Now the sour grape in the stew – 1,5 to 3 mtpa is quite large for mid-scale. Most available gas sources don’t support a train this size. Do this, and don’t forget that there is a lot more at the bottom. Bild them smaller and throw them off a conveyor belt.
KBR, Inc. and ConocoPhillips will jointly develop a standardized liquefied natural gas (LNG) train to provide mid-scale LNG capacity for both greenfield and brownfield expansions seeking off-the-shelf technology to reduce costs and shorten project schedules, KBR reported Tuesday.
