Jumboizing

Through the late 1990s to 2000s, the demand for LNG increased rapidly since the value of natural gas as an energy source was recognized, and the energy consumption of Japan and other East Asian countries with few natural resources increased because of their economic growth. Along with these backgrounds, the size of LNG plants was becoming larger. Chiyoda has been leading the trend and successfully completing a lot of the world's largest LNG plants.

The super Large-Scale LNG plants are not be attained by simple scale-up design method, rather it is accomplished through challenging technological improvements and Contractor’s expertise.

Especially, EPC of 7.8 MTPA LNG plants which is the largest in the world is conducted solely by Chiyoda as the main contractor. Furthermore, the completion of the projects was made under hard conditions, multiple large projects (total six trains) proceeded in parallel. The LNG plants keep stable operation and producing LNG.

Capabilities

  • Large Scale LNG plants has advantages to construction costs. In general, LNG plant scale-up costs are not simply proportional to the LNG plant capacity. For instance, even when the capacity of a system doubles, the construction cost of the system can be less than double the cost.
  • To achieve the same LNG production capacity, large Scale LNG plants requires small plot area compare to the n-number of times small scale LNG plants.
  • Proven and advanced design technologies for both safety and analysis to achieve reliable operation.
  • Even more accurate production technology is necessary for the core of LNG plants, including main heat exchangers, refrigeration compressors and driving machines.
  • In order to transport and install supersized machines and materials, special transportation (vehicles, ships, etc.) and installation strategy to be considered.
