US-based LNG equipment maker, AirProducts, on Tuesday said it has been contracted to provide its technology, equipment and related process license for Golden Pass LNG export project in Sabine Pass, Texas.

Air Products said in its statement it will supply its proprietary natural gas liquefaction technology and equipment, and three of its main cryogenic heat exchangers, to be installed at the heart of the proprietary propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant liquefaction process for the three-train facility.
Air Products’ LNG technology, which will be integral in producing around 16 million tons per year of liquefied natural gas, is to be operational when the Golden Pass facility starts-up in 2024.
Air Products LNG heat exchangers and related equipment for the Golden Pass project will be manufactured at its Port Manatee, Florida facility.
Golden Pass LNG export facility will have a production capacity of about 16 million tons of LNG per year with the production from the facility is expected to start up in 2024.
