Honeywell tech chosen for LNG pipeline in China
Honeywell Process Solutions said that its technology is selected for China’s long-distance Guangxi liquefied natural gas high-pressure pipeline.
A project of Sinopec and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, the Guangxi LNG pipeline will play a role in optimizing China’s energy structure and meeting the demand for natural gas in Guangxi. The project will use HPS gas measurement and equipment and software to measure the flow and pressure in the pipeline, the company informed in a statement.
The pipeline should be completed later this year, and will have a capacity of 8 billion cubic meters of LNG a year and a total length of more than 1,300 miles, from Maoming to Beihai in the Guangxi region. This pipeline will be part of a network that transports natural gas and LNG from as far away as Kazakhstan to China. HPS technology is already being used on all three of the 1,100-mile Central Asia to China pipelines as well as the 5,600-mile West to East II pipeline across China.
The integrated gas measurement technologies provided by Honeywell includes computer software and sensors that measure flow, temperature, pressure and other indicators that are critical to maintain optimum performance throughout the entire long-distance pipeline.
