Dresser-Rand Group Inc., a global equipment provider to the oil and gas, petrochemical and other industries, says it has successfully produced fuel from the company's new small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) production platform, LNGo.
The next step, according to the company, is full performance and endurance testing of the micro-plant, followed by its commercial release. Dresser-Rand says LNGo is designed to yield 6,000 gallons of LNG per day.
‘We are very excited about this technology for small-scale LNG production, which allows for very small standalone plants that are portable and can be moved to support changing requirements and needs,’ remarks Vincent R. Volpe Jr., DresserÂRand's president and CEO.
Dresser-Rand anticipates that it will provide full turnkey installation and commissioning of LNGo – whether customers buy or lease the equipment – as well as handle operations, monitoring and maintenance.
