Darwin LNG -- Darwin, Australia
Startup: December 2005, Capacity: 3.7 MTPA
Darwin LNG is a single train facility with a unit capacity of 3.7 MTPA. To address environmental priorities of project owners and the host country, the Darwin facility was designed with several firsts, including being the first application of highly efficient aero-derivative gas turbines in LNG service. Additionally, DLNG was the first Optimized Cascade® Process facility to incorporate waste heat integration to improve process efficiency and inlet air humidification to enhance production during periods of low humidity.
Australia Pacific LNG -- Queensland, Australia
In 2008, ConocoPhillips signed an agreement with Origin Energy to participate in a 50/50 joint venture that would be comprised of coal bed methane development, operated by Origin Energy, and a liquefied natural gas project, operated by ConocoPhillips.
Kenai LNG -- Kenai, Alaska
Startup: June 1969, Capacity: 1.5 MTPA
The 1.5 MTPA Kenai Alaska LNG plant started up in 1969 and has achieved over 40 years of uninterrupted supply to Japanese customers. Kenai was the world’s largest plant when built, the first to serve the Asia-Pacific market, and the first to use gas fired turbines for process refrigeration. Since startup, the plant has achieved production efficiency in excess of 95 percent and turbine/compressor reliability of over 99 percent.
