Liquefied Natural Gas
LNG pre-treating technologies remove contaminants upstream of liquefaction processes, so your plants run with fewer upsets for longer intervals between shutdowns – adding to bottom-line performance. Our integrated solutions are designed to provide lower utility requirements, lower waste disposal costs, higher NGL recovery and greater sulfur recovery.

Small Scale LNG
Through our alliance with Black & Veatch, UOP offers a full turnkey, modular, small scale natural gas pre-treatment and liquefaction plants. Applications for small scale LNG include “virtual pipelines” for capturing stranded gas and flare gas; power generation; gas storage for peak shaving; and for producing a substitution fuel for diesel; long-haul trucking; and for marine, railroad, mining, or drilling/fracing applications (i.e. any high horse power engines).
Dehydration and Dew Pointing
Dew pointing helps avoid downstream equipment operability issues associated with condensation and liquid slugging and controls the gas heating value. Effective dehydration is critical for LNG transportation to avoid unplanned shutdowns, costly equipment repairs and hazardous working conditions.
UOP adsorbent solutions remove mercury from offshore natural gas streams to help protect downstream piping and processing equipment. Deployed in more than 30 applications, the regenerable and non-regenerable systems offer infrequent change-outs, longer adsorbent lifespan, and reduced footprints for smaller vessels to enhance profitability.
Acid Gas Removal
UOP’s proven offshore gas processing solutions offer significant reductions in space and weight to meet end use specifications and lower your acid gas removal costs.
To recover valuable NGLs on your FPSO or FLNG vessel, we offer integrated, compact solutions to reduce costs and improve revenue streams.
