Pacific NorthWest LNG to Utilize BASF’s OASE Gas Treating Technology

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/4/2013, Location: Europe

BASF and Pacific NorthWest LNG have concluded a license agreement on the use of BASF’s OASE® technology for the removal of carbon dioxide and sulfur containing components from natural gas for all trains of Pacific NorthWest LNG’s proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in the district of Port Edward, near Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada . The facility anticipates shipping first gas to customers by the end of 2018. The use of BASF’s OASE technology for Gas Treating is essential for the production of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

BASF’s OASE technology removes contaminants contained in the gas to enable its liquefaction at temperatures of about minus 160 degrees Celsius. The technology has a proven track record in LNG facilities around the globe and its robustness and flexibility to meet stringent removal requirements is well recognized in the industry. Dr. Andreas Northemann, Head of the Global Gas Treatment business in BASF’s Intermediates division, said: “We are pleased to work together with Pacific NorthWest LNG to provide the optimum solution for their facility. This cooperation is another milestone in enhancing and building on our long term presence in Canada.” BASF has been present in Canada since 1954 with headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario and has manufacturing and sales sites across Canada.

Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) for the LNG facility is currently ongoing with three international engineering contractors. The FEED is expected to be complete and in time for a Final Investment Decision by the end of 2014.

With more than 40 years of experience, BASF offers its customers efficient solutions for the treatment of various gases such as natural gas, synthesis gas, and biogas. Worldwide, these solutions have been proven and demonstrated in over 350 reference plants. BASF markets its range of technologies, gas treatment agents and complete technical services under the brand OASE – Gas Treating Excellence by BASF.
