Reduce air emissions from natural gas vaporization units

New revaporizing method mitigates air pollutant releases while maintaining process efficiency

In the US, natural gas import terminals typically use submerged combustion vaporization (SCV) to bring liquefied natural gas (LNG) to pipeline specifications.1 However, this technology is facing increased government regulations due to concerns over potentially harmful emissions. These stricter regulations can jeopardize a permit application schedule, create pressure on project economics and significantly increase development costs. In some cases, tighter regulations could cause a project to become economically unfavorable. As a result, in many projects, the requirement for reduced emissions will supersede the total fuel efficiency and capital installation costs for vaporization technology.
