Dresser-Rand’s first micro-scale LNG solution starts up
Dresser-Rand, part of Siemens Power and Gas, has commissioned its first micro-scale natural gas liquefaction system at the Ten Man LNG facility in Pennsylvania, U.S.
The modular, portable solution, developed by the Dresser-Rand, allows the operator, Frontier Natural Resources, to monetize stranded gas assets at Tenaska Resources’s Mainesburg field, located in the Marcellus shale play.
The scope of supply included a standardized LNGo solution consisting of four different modules, each handling one step of the liquefaction process, Siemens said in its statement
The Ten Man facility commenced production in mid-September last year, just four months from contract signing, and has produced approximately half a million liters of LNG since startup.
Siemens further added that the micro-scale LNGo solution eliminates the need for establishing gas pipeline infrastructure or arranging for long-distance trucking of LNG from centralized plants to point of use.
