Liquefied Natural Gas

Systems for Agile Operations and Compliance with Regulatory Frameworks

Tight controls are required for liquefied natural gas (LNG) liquefaction, regasification, and shipping/receiving. It is crucial to maintain a safe working environment, minimize downtime, and manage operational costs. To achieve these goals, your automation systems must meet stringent process control requirements, and also be reliable and scalable.

Safety, Efficiency, and Maximum Uptime

Defining Machinery Value Beyond Cost

While LNG offers substantial rewards, it also poses significant challenges. Tough environmental and safety regulations mandate constant vigilance. Volatile markets demand agile responses, and dynamic business conditions require operational excellence.
