Low-Emission LNG with respect to efficiency and operability contributes to reducing the CO2 emissions through lower power consumption and reduced flaring.

It is essential for improving the existing units and processes, or developing new and more efficient ones, to have a thorough insight in the underlying physical behaviour of the fluid streams involved. Hence, fundamentals for multilevel modelling of LNG processes are directly linked to the development of low-emission LNG plants.

In this competence building project (KPN) we want to facilitate sustainable production of natural gas by developing knowledge, competence and tools, which will enable evaluation, design and operation of innovative, environmentally safe, cost-effective and energy-efficient LNG systems.

Enabling low-emission LNG systems

 is performed under the PETROMAKS program. Support from the project partners; Statoil and GDF SUEZ, and the Research Council of Norway (193062/S60) is acknowledged.
