Corporate Profile

Modular LNG 

Energy World Group developed Australia’s first domestic LNG plant over 18 years ago (Alice Springs LNG Facility) and pioneered the transportation of LNG by road

Energy World Group decided LNG was the best way to supply Asia’s growing energy demands and protect the environment

Energy World Group approached liquefaction equipment makers asking for their standard equipment – when standard equipment does not exist

Energy World Group ordered a FEED Study to design a standard modular ½ MTPA liquefaction train using standard pipeline gas

Teaming Up with Industry Leaders on Modular LNG

Energy World Group has brought together distinguished global players and strong partners such as Chart and Siemens to develop an efficient, electric drive modular LNG system that can be used in a variety of locations.

Development of Modular LNG

E-LNG allows for a simple, elegant Liquefaction setup with a relatively small footprint.

Through innovative design, Energy World Group has downsized typical LNG train sizes – we are moving from the grandfather clock to the pocket watch.

By using a standard design, more and more components can be shop fabricated allowing for better quality, cost effectiveness and reduced installation time.

Benefits of Modular LNG

  • Significantly lower capital cost requirement (easier financing) with faster construction and faster LNG to market (earlier revenue stream during development of gas field)
  • Standardized, "off the shelf" design, proven technology, minimal (re)engineering
  • Maximized shop fabrication, minimized field construction, "plug and play" concept
  • Less complex design means simpler plant operation, improved turndown capability and lower maintenance downtime with multiple production modules
  • Flexibility to incorporate additional modular LNG trains to add capacity to an LNG facility to suit the particular characteristics of a given gas field (deferred investment)
  • Plant can be dismantled and relocated when a gas field is depleted (reduced investment risk)
  • Ability to exploit stranded gas fields that are not considered commercially viable for conventional baseload LNG facilities
  • Modular approach is suitable for both onshore and offshore applications

The LNG Storage Tank

Energy World Group has secured a License from GTT – Gaztransport & Technigaz to use its LNG tank technology for land based membrane tanks

  • Energy agencies are forecasting significant increases in natural gas demand during the next 20 years.
  • The largest increments in future gas use are expected to be in the developing countries.
  • In the last two decades, LNG demand has experienced 7.7% annual growth.
  • World demand for natural gas has grown about 2.6 percent a year over the last decade, but in Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa it has averaged 7 percent over the same period.
