Comparison of baseload liquefaction processes.


The paper summarises a recent comparison of five baseload LNG processes. The range of technology encompasses the propane/mixed refrigerant process, a cascade process, a version of the dual mixed refrigerant process, a simple single mixed refrigerant process and a pre-cooled nitrogen expansion process. Each process was assessed on the basis of specific costs, specific power and fuel efficiency for a nominal 2 train liquefaction plant. Conclusions are given.
