LNG infrastructure provider AG&P and Air Liquide Global E&C, the engineering and construction arm of the Air Liquide Group, have signed an agreement for the development of small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) infrastructure across Asia.
The two companies plan to provide solutions for LNG distribution with a focus on liquefaction, transportation, and downstream infrastructure to deliver LNG to end-users seeking LNG for power, shipping, ground transport, and other industrial applications, AG&P said.
According to AG&P Chairman Jose Leviste, the agreement will enable the integration of downstream LNG infrastructure, including small-scale regasification terminals, distribution hubs, truck loading stations, and boil-off gas handling systems into AG&P’s LNG supply network for rapid delivery of tolled gas to last-mile customers. “Our aim is to streamline Air Liquide’s know-how in gas processing technology and patents with AG&P’s experience in design, engineering, and construction,” he said.
As part of the agreement, AG&P and Air Liquide will begin developing downstream LNG modules, AG&P said, adding that the deal also covers boil-off gas (BOG) management systems.
