Small and mid-scale LNG plants are used primarily to meet local or regional energy requirements. Linde specializes in providing tailored solutions for each customer's individual requirements, this means offering a full range of liquefaction technologies.
Small to mid-scale LNG plants typically have a production capacity on the order of 50,000 – 3,000,000 tonnes per year.
LIMUM (Linde Multi Stage Mixed Refrigerant) is a single mixed refrigerant process. The LIMUM process, with Linde's own plate-fin heat exchangers is recommended for LNG plants with a capacity of less than 200,000 tpa, where simplicity and reduced capital expenditure are paramount.
For LNG plant capacities in excess of approximately 200,000 tpa, the LIMUM process is paired with Linde's own coil-wound heat exchangers. In either variation, the LIMUM process is an energy efficient alternative to expander processes for peak shaving and small LNG plants.
