Patented Technology Black & Veatch was selected because of its reputation in the oil & gas market, and its ability to address the project’s complex technical issues. China’s natural gas pipeline infrastructure is developing, and the country’s large size presents challenges in supplying the much-needed clean fuel to local inhabitants. Black & Veatch’s patented PRICO® technology enables the mid-scale Chinese facilities to quickly move LNG to market by reducing the gas volume 600 times by liquefaction and then transporting it by tank truck. Black & Veatch’s startup team was particularly commended for the successful performance test, including thorough reviews and recommendations to the client to ensure a smooth transition. “After Black & Veatch participated in this project, their robust technology, precise service and successful operation made us the largest LNG producer with the most advanced technology in China and an important LNG supplier. We have successfully occupied the domestic market and have become the industry leader, largely due to the contribution of Black & Veatch.” Mr. Wu, Lexian, Vice Chairman and President, Erdos Xingxing Energy Co., Ltd.

Southeast Asia’s Journey Toward a Cleaner Energy Future Strong economic growth, low gas prices and environmental goals are transforming natural gas demand in Southeast Asia. Designing Mines with Water in Mind Climate change, a growing global population and accelerating urbanization are deepening concern over the world’s water security. FLNG Solutions Prove To Be Much More Than Potential It was roughly a decade ago when the initial introduction of floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) solutions sought to help bring uneconomic gas reserves offshore, such as those in remote locations, to the market. Over the past few years, however, we’ve watched as offshore FLNG capabilities have moved closer to the mainland, offering a very flexible and economical solution to operators looking to offload their supply around the world. Four Big Trends in Gas-to-Power Hold Promise for U.S. Market Major energy shifts are afoot, and the United States will play a critical role going forward. The EIA projects that by 2022, the U.S. will become a net energy exporter, according to its newly released Annual Energy Outlook 2018. For natural gas, this shift will happen even earlier, around 2020, the EIA says. Related Project Stories Lifting the Burdens of Capital Improvement Programs For more than 20 years, Black & Veatch worked with the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Utility Commission to upgrade its wastewater treatment system on a project-by-project basis. There were many short-term wins, but resilience dated master plan made the long-term a bit less clear. The real win, and biggest cost savings, required a different approach. Industrial Wastewater Treatment Keeps Power Facilities Compliant A large utility located in the Midwest needed to build a low volume wastewater (LVW) treatment system to improve to two of its coal-burning plants necessitated by the Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) rule.
