Judges Comments

“LNGo system offers a good solution to monetize flare gas and wider spread use of natural gas to power the oilfield.”

“The distributed LNG system should help propel the utilization of NG. With the dramatic increase in the availability of NG, there is a real need to increase utilization, especially in those areas that have limited pipeline capacity. This system is another advancement in the virtual pipeline segment.”

Dresser-Rand is among the largest suppliers of custom-engineered rotating equipment solutions for the worldwide energy infrastructure, including oil, gas, petrochemical, power generation, and process industries. Our high-speed rotating equipment is also supplied to the environmental market space within energy infrastructure.

These products—centrifugal and reciprocating gas compressors,gas and steam turbines, gas expanders, gas and diesel engines, and associated control panels—are used in oil and gas production, high-pressure field injection and oil recovery, gas liquefaction, gas transmission, refinery processes, natural gas processing, petrochemical production, general industry (including paper, steel, sugar, and distributed power), power generation, and military applications.

Dresser-Rand’s LNGoTM distributed liquefied natural gas technology is a modularized, compact, redeployable, distributed natural gas liquefaction
plant capable of producing 6,000 – 8,000 gallons of LNG per day. The system is made up of four packaged skids: a power module, compressor module, process module, and a gas- conditioning module that offer a decentralized, distributed approach to meeting the growing demand for LNG fueling. The system takes advantage of Dresser-Rand’s product offerings by combining a MOSTM reciprocating compressor, a Guascor® generator set, and Enginuity® control, monitoring and safety system resulting in a new liquefaction process that can be installed and operating within months.
