The air cooler systems will be used to cool the main process streams at the natural gas plant. In the cooling process natural gas liquids are separated from the gas and then fractionated (distilled) into ethane, propane and butane.

“This order proves our strong position as a reliable supplier of safe and efficient equipment to the demanding applications within the oil and gas industry,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
Did you know that… that ethane, propane and butane can be separated from the natural gas and then used, for example, as feed stock for petrochemical plants, for household heating or as fuel for vehicles?
