Oz LNG project gets boost from thermal energy solution

Thermal energy solutions: TAS Energy’s manufacturing facility in Houston, Texas

TAS Energy delivers turbine inlet chilling modules to Bechtel for Australian project

Houston-based TAS Energy has delivered a thermal energy solution to Bechtel for use at a liquefied natural gas project in Australia.

TAS said its turbine inlet chilling modules would assist the gas turbines running the compressors for the liquefaction process "to ensure consistent inlet air temperature in the turbine fleet".

TAS claimed this would be the world’s first turbine inlet chilling application used in the LNG process. 

For the LNG process, having a consistent turbine inlet air temperature stabilises compressor power input, maximises LNG plant production, and optimises compressor selection, said the company.
