LNG equipment maker Air Products on Friday rolled out the first completed liquefied natural gas (LNG) heat exchanger manufactured at its new production facility in Manatee County, Florida.

The heat exchanger was transported from the Air Products facility, crossing over Route 41 directly onto the property of Port Manatee, to be loaded on a barge and shipped to a customer for a major liquefied natural gas project along the United States Gulf Coast, the company’s statement reads.

Sandy McLauchlin, general manager – LNG & CryoMachinery Engineering & Manufacturing at Air Products noted that the company selected the second location as it eliminates transportation limitations regarding product size.

The new facility at Port Manatee also doubles the company’s production capacity, according to the statement.

Typically an LNG heat exchanger can be as large as over 15 feet in diameter and 180 feet long, or about two-thirds of the size of a football field. A finished unit can weigh as much as 500 tons.

Air Products has already shipped 116 LNG heat exchangers to 17 countries around the world, this first unit produced here at Port Manatee is the company’s first shipment to a Gulf Coast location and the second U.S. location for Air Products’ LNG technology.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
