The Cleanest Fossil Fuel is On the Move
LNG has All the Advantages of Natural Gas Plus Safe Transportation and Storage
Natural gas power generation is known to be the cleanest fossil fuel-based power method. When remote communities and mines do not have access to a pipeline for natural gas supply, the alternative is liquefied natural gas (LNG)-to-power.
Natural gas is liquefied at -170°C (-274°F) so that it is easily transportable by truck, train, and ship to remote locations. Enerflex systems include the reception and storage of LNG followed by regasification systems to return liquid gas to its gaseous state. Whether you are in a remote community, mine site, or industry, you should investigate how LNG cogeneration can help you reduce your operating costs and lower your environmental footprint.
Gas-to-Power is a Global Trend
The entire power industry needs new business models to effectively handle the high penetration levels of non-dispatchable renewables in modern power grids, and the strong demand for flexible, highly efficient, and clean dispatchable power solutions. These also require a strong focus on CO2 reduction and optimizing electricity costs.
Exploring a variety of innovative technologies and combining different sources of energy can help lower expenditures by ensuring the smartest energy mix. A key element in our efforts to achieve a carbon-neutral future is LNG, which generates considerably less CO2, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, and particle emissions than any other fossil fuel. Gas-to-power has become a rapidly growing global trend, with LNG available for power generation practically anywhere with access to the sea or a receiving LNG terminal. Independence from existing gas infrastructure and pipelines, combined with cost-effective operations, are essential to the future viability of this technology.
Enerflex in Action
- Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada
8.8 MW Cogeneration Hydro / LNG Power Plant
Enerflex engineered, designed, and manufactured the facility’s amine trains, dehydrators, and compression equipment, with over 17,000 HP of compression. The Company supplied modularized amine units for H₂S and CO₂ removal. Execution of the project included 58,000 engineering hours, 350,000 shop hours, and 600 trailer loads, including approximately 70 assembled process modules.
Enerflex helped make this sour gas processing plant the largest in the area by achieving 800 MMSCFD of raw gas inlet capacity. The amine plant was designed to process 200 MMSCFD, and the four processing trains — each with a rated circulation of 2,100 gallons per minute (GPM) – had a total combined circulation rate of 8,400 GPM.
