Introduction

  • The ConocoPhillips Optimized Cascade® Process is designed around a "two-train-in-one" reliability concept that has been successfully proven in more than four decades of plant operation.
  • Natural gas is first treated to remove contaminants including CO2, water and mercury before entering the liquefaction section of the plant. The treated gas is then chilled to approximately –260 degrees Fahrenheit in successively colder heat exchangers that use propane, ethylene and methane as refrigerants. Product leaving the methane exchangers is LNG ready for storage.
  • The LNG product is then pumped into insulated storage tanks before being loaded on special ships to be transported to LNG import terminals around the world.
