Air Products (NYSE:APD) today announced that it received an order for two main cryogenic heat exchangers from Yemen LNG Company Ltd. for two liquefied natural gas (LNG) process trains to be built in Bal-Haf, Republic of Yemen. The two heat exchangers will be part of Yemen's first-ever LNG plant.

"Air Products will provide its proprietary propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant liquefaction process technology with the Split MRTM refrigeration equipment configuration, and an MCR® main cryogenic heat exchanger for each train of the facility," said Mark Modjeska, director, LNG for Air Products. The two LNG trains will have a total capacity of 6.7 million metric tons per year of LNG. The target for Train 1 start-up is end of 2008, with Train 2 coming on line approximately 5 months later.

The shareholders of Yemen LNG Company Ltd. are Total (42.90%), Yemen Gas Company (23.10%), Hunt Oil Company (18%), SK Corporation (10%) and Hyundai Corporation (6%).

A vast majority of the total worldwide baseload LNG production capacity is produced with Air Products' technology. Air Products has designed, manufactured, and exported nearly 75 LNG heat exchangers from its Wilkes-Barre, Pa. facility over the last 30 years.

In support of the LNG industry, Air Products provides process license and key equipment for the heart of the baseload liquefaction process and land-based nitrogen plants for the baseload LNG facility. Upstream, Air Products provides both nitrogen and natural gas dehydration membrane systems for offshore platforms. Downstream, Air Products provides dry inert gas generators for LNG carriers, shipboard membrane nitrogen systems, land-based membrane and cryogenic nitrogen systems, LNG import terminals, and LNG peak shavers.
