Air Products has signed an agreement to provide its proprietary LNG technology, equipment and related process license and advisory services to the Energía Costa Azul (ECA) LNG Export Terminal Project.
Air Products’ LNG manufacturing facility in Port Manatee, Florida will manufacture the coil wound heat exchangers (CWHE) for its AP-DMR LNG Process technology, which will then be shipped to the project export terminal site in Ensenada, Mexico.
As previously reported, ECA LNG is a joint venture between Sempra LNG, IEnova and Total. The project would be the first LNG export facility on the Pacific Coast of North America that can help connect abundant natural gas supplies from Texas and the Western US directly to markets in Mexico and countries across the Pacific Basin.
‘ECA LNG is a new customer for Air Products’ LNG business, and we are pleased our AP-DMR process technology was selected to assist them in meeting their LNG business goals for the first phase of this strategic west coast North America LNG project,’ said Dr. Samir J. Serhan, chief operating officer at Air Products.
