Natural gas liquefaction processes comparison.


This paper presents Axens efforts to compare Liquefin with the competing process, specially the reputed most efficient ones: C3/MR, C3/MR followed by nitrogen cycle, dual mixed refrigerant process with spiral wound exchangers. To solve the capacity increase problem, many new processes have proposed solutions. The comparison of these processes for a specific case must be done with care, taking into account all parameters including site conditions, end flash quantity, compressor efficiency, temperature approach and LPG recovery. The equipment availability and risk factor must also be taken into account. In this respect, the flexibility of Liquefin could make it the right choice in many cases.
