Texas LNG, a Houston-based energy company, has selected Honeywell’s UOP Amine Guard™ FS process to remove contaminants from natural gas in preparation for liquefaction and export. The company’s two-phase project, located on the north shore of the Port of Brownsville’s deep-water ship channel, will produce 4 million tons of LNG beginning in 2020.
Honeywell’s process reduces carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and other sulfur components from natural gas to extremely low levels, and the process can be customized depending on application and feed gas quality. More than 40% of treated LNG in the world is processed using the Amine Guard FS technology.
Honeywell UOP adsorbents can selectively adsorb contaminants by size and polarity, making them efficient agents for drying and purifying liquids and gases. The company’s GB series and HgSIV™ series adsorbents can be used in a number of combinations to remove mercury and minimize costs.
