New Jersey-based Agility Gas Technologies (AGT) received two patents in the USA and the GCC region for high-value gasses (HVG) transportation onboard LNG carriers. 

According to the company’s statement, the technology allows Ethylene suppliers to ship HVG on LNG tankers by displacing a portion of the liquefied natural gas in ship tanks with HVG.

It is considered a faster method compared to the specialized vessels which also allows higher transport capacities compared to the smaller ethylene or propylene carriers.

The company said it is in the process of building a demo plant with a view to demonstrating the technology on an LNG carrier.
