State-of-the-Art LNG Equipment Test Facility
Since the facility opened in 2014, Air Products has expanded the manufacturing capacity at Port Manatee by over 50 percent. In addition, we built a state-of-the-art equipment test facility that allows for the collection of data to develop designs for the next generation of our innovative coil wound heat exchangers.
Our workforce at Port Manatee is comprised of highly-skilled and experienced craftspeople who take pride in the quality of their work and attention to detail. The result is a superior product delivered on-time that customers count on to operate safely, reliably, and efficiently for many years.
World's First Offshore FLNG Facilities
Air Products has supplied liquefaction technology and equipment to four of the world's first offshore FLNG projects, namely Shell Prelude, Petronas FLNG Satu, Petronas FLNG Dua, and Coral South FLNG. This year marked the first ever relocation of an operational FLNG facility with Petronas FLNG Satu's move to a new gas reserve location offshore Sabah over the Kebabangan gas field. This move required only a simple engineering verification and no physical modifications to the equipment. We have also participated in over a dozen FLNG FEEDs since 2010.
AP-X® LNG Technology and Equipment Selected by World’s Number One LNG Producer
Setting the standard for the industry, Air Products’ AP-X liquefaction technology offers the largest LNG process trains in the world, enabling customers to reduce capital cost per ton of LNG produced via economy of scale. These immense AP-X units have a process production capacity that is significantly greater than any other LNG train in operation.
Air Products has supplied key equipment and technology for all of Qatar’s 14 existing LNG trains operating in Ras Laffan, the first of which started production in 1996.
