HOUSTON, Oct. 16 -- China’s Ningxia Hanas Natural Gas Co. will employ Air Products’ LNG process technology and equipment for a midsize LNG project in Yinchuan, China, according to an agreement with overall project manager Technip announced Oct. 15.

Air Products will supply single mixed-refrigerant process technology, engineering, design, and manufacturing of the heat exchanger equipment for liquefaction process sections in two 400,000-tonne/year trains. The process uses Air Products’ proprietary wound-coil main cryogenic heat exchanger technology.

Yinchuan is the capital of northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. The Yinchuan LNG plant will be the largest of its kind in China, according to Air Proiducts’ announcement, and will distribute LNG to markets in the region.

Target completion for the units is second-half 2011.

Most of the world’s LNG plants use Air Products’ technology. The company says it has designed, manufactured, and exported more than 75 LNG heat exchangers from its Wilkes-Barre, Pa., plant over four decades.
