  • Teekay Corporation

    Mustang was chosen to design the topsides of a floating LNG/LPG liquefaction new-build vessel for Teekay Corporation. The liquefaction technology selected for this project is Mustang’s LNG Smart® Nitrogen Dual Expander (NDX-1) liquefaction process. NDX-1 is a process that is simple, compact, energy-efficient, and flexible over a wide range of feed compositions. NDX-1 offers a thermal efficiency of 91-93%. The use of nitrogen as the refrigeration fluid makes this process inherently safer and facilitates the design of a modular layout.

    Samsung Heavy Industries of Korea will design and construct the hull for the floating LNG vessel. Initial design concepts call for the unit to have a combined storage capacity for LNG and LPG in excess of 200,000 m3.

The fractionation facility produces three products: propane, butane, and a C5+ fraction (condensate or natural gasoline). All three products are stored at atmospheric pressure; consequently, the facility also includes a propane refrigerant system to chill the propane and butane products so that they can be stored in atmospheric tanks.

  • Trunkline LNG Infrastructure Enhancement Project

    Trunkline LNG awarded Mustang the engineering, procurement, and construction management services contract for the enhancement of the liquefied natural gas import facility at Lake Charles, LA.

    Mustang will install its patented LNG Smart® Air Vaporization technology (SAV) at the terminal. The environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient technology uses a closed-loop intermediate fluid circulating through fin-fan heat exchangers to extract heat from the ambient air to vaporize the LNG from its cryogenic state of -260°F back to pipeline temperatures for pipeline transport and gas storage. This process reduces the amount of fuel needed for regasification, having the potential to save millions of dollars each year. Assuming an $8.00 mmbtu natural gas price, with SAV providing 85% of the heat duty as would be expected at the Gulf of Mexico port, fuel savings per year could be as much as $32,000,000.

    Additionally, Mustang will also install a natural gas liquids recovery unit (NGLRU) at the facility to recover ethane and other heavier hydrocarbons from the LNG stream, increasing the terminal’s sendout flexibility and revenues. Because of the worldwide variability in LNG composition, adding the ability to extract NGLs will allow the terminal’s customer, BG LNG Services, to import supply from any liquefaction facility in the world.

    The facility became operational in 2010.
