Mustang Receives U.S. Patent for LNG Liquefaction Process

Mustang Engineering and Wood Group have been awarded U.S. Patent #7,225,636 for a proprietary process to liquefy natural gas. This process is marketed as the LNG Smart Liquefaction Process and offers several benefits.

It requires no separate refrigerant production or storage; all refrigeration is provided by the process fluid; standard field-proven components are used, such as compressors, turbo expanders, vessels, and generators with a custom heat exchanger; and the process can easily accommodate variable gas production rates and shutdowns.

In addition, the LNG Smart Liquefaction Process is easily integrated in an offshore environment on a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel to commercialize associated and stranded gas fields.
