Adriatic LNG Servicing


Gas Land recently visited Adriatic LNG to service four Nitrogen Generators that are running on the platform. Adriatic LNG terminal is a LNG receiving facility located in the Adriatic sea offshore of Porto Viro.  Ten years ago, the Nitrogen Systems  were designed to run three systems at all times, and use the fourth system as a backup. However, today the terminal is using one system continuously to meet normal demand requirements, and use all four systems during peak demand. Currently, each system produces about 200 - 220 Nm3/hr of Nitrogen at 98% purity. Gas Land worked with Adriatic LNG to further fine tune performance for each system such as  monitoring DCS and recommending maintenance and spares, along with expanding the system's life for another 10 years.

Adriatic LNG is the world's first offshore gravity based structure LNG regasification terminal. The terminal mainly imports LNG from Qatar but also receives cargoes from Egypt, Trinidad and Tobago, Equatorial Guinea and Sabine Pass from the United States, all of which have Gas Land's Nitrogen Systems.

Wheatstone Commissioning

Gas Land successfully commissioned the Nitrogen Generator System for Wheatstone LNG on 31st October 2016. Gas Land is proud to be an integral component of such a massive project which is set to redefine Australia's reputation as a LNG superpower. 

The produced Nitrogen will be used for various applications such as blanketing of tanks, purging of cold boxes, compressor seal gas, and more importantly, purging of loading arms during shipping. 

In addition to the Nitrogen Generator, Gas Land supplied the Liquid Nitrogen Back Up System for this project. The Liquid Nitrogen System consists of two Liquid Nitrogen Tanks, Pressure Building Coils, Ambient Air Vaporizers and an Economizer Circuit. Each tank can hold up to 94,000 US gallons of Liquid Nitrogen. These are the biggest tanks that Gas Land has ever built to date.
