Chart’s design and manufacturing experience covers new facilities, cold box replacements and performance upgrades.
Primarily aimed at liquid fuel replacement, LNG vehicle fueling, and off -grid power generation, Chart’s small scale liquefaction plants form part of an overall “Virtual Pipeline” solution, including storage, distribution, re-vaporization, and LNG fueling stations provided by our sister Distribution & Storage division.
Chart’s tailored solution for monetizing mid-scale gas reserves through LNG liquefaction comprises “Scale-Adapted” liquefaction trains, of up to 2.0 MMTPA, utilizing proven shop fabricated equipment available commercially in today’s market and our own IPSMR® liquefaction process that improves operating efficiency and reduces power consumption compared to competing technologies. The result is reduced capital cost, faster project execution and quicker Liquefied Natural Gas to market for mid-sized gas fields.
Shop fabrication is maximized in order to minimize field construction and plants can be deployed on and offshore.
Chart offers pre-feasibility studies, scope development and detailed design services with the fabrication of our proprietary equipment.
Chart offers a flange to flange solution for the ethylene and methane process cold boxes for the ConocoPhillips Optimized Cascade® Process. The scope includes brazed aluminum heat exchangers (BAHX), inter-connecting pipe work, process separators and Core-in-Kettle® units.
