Micro-Scale Liquefaction for Tenaska-Frontier in the Marcellus

Dresser-Rand is talking up the commissioning of its first micro-scale installation for liquefied natural gas production. The modular, portable “LNGo” unit is being operated by Frontier Natural Resources to monetize stranded gas assets at Tenaska Resources’ Mainesburg field in the Marcellus shale in Pennsylvania.

Dresser-Rand’s ‘LNGo’ micro-scale natural gas liquefaction installation at Frontier Natural Resources’ Ten Man LNG facility in Pennsylvania was commissioned this past September.

Separately, an LNGo installation for New Jersey’s Elizabethtown Gas (HHP Insight, November 20, 2015) is in the final phases of construction and is expected to be commissioned soon.

“The scope of supply included a standardized LNGo solution,” Dresser-Rand said in yesterday’s announcement,” consisting of four different modules, each handling one step of the liquefaction process.”

The LNGo system “is deployed directly at the gas field and has a footprint of approximately 508 square meters, roughly the size of a basketball court.”

‘Half a Million Liters of LNG in the First 20 Days’

Also according to yesterday’s announcement, “The Ten Man facility commenced production just four months from contract signing, and has produced approximately half a million liters of LNG in the first 20 days” (about 132,000 gallons).

‘LNGo technology makes it possible to monetize stranded gas deposits,’ Dresser-Rand says, ‘due to its relatively low capital and operating costs.’

“This project demonstrates our unique capabilities to deliver innovative solutions for oil and gas applications that help our clients maximize the value of their assets,” said Dresser-Rand distributed LNG solutions sales director Michael Walhof.

‘Makes It Possible to Monetize Stranded Gas’

“The LNGo technology makes it possible to monetize stranded gas deposits due to its relatively low capital and operating costs,” Dresser-Rand says.

LNGo “can be deployed in rough terrain or remote regions, eliminating the need to establish an expensive gas pipeline infrastructure or arrange for long-distance trucking of LNG from centralized plants to point of use.

‘A Decentralized Solution’

“It can function as a decentralized solution where the requisite pipeline infrastructure is lacking, or as an onsite transformation solution to reduce or eliminate flaring of petroleum gas at, for example, oil rigs or producing gas fields.”

And, Dresser-Rand notes, “The whole LNGo system can be transported on eight trucks.

Dresser-Rand is a subsidiary of Siemens Power and Gas.

LNGo demonstration installation in Painted Post, N.Y. has been operational since December 2013 (HHP Insight, December 5, 2013).
