Natural gas is one of the most important and cleanest sources of energy of our time. The need for natural gas is increasing and thus liquid natural gas (LNG) plays an important role in the gas industry worldwide. LNG terminals, storage and further processing facilities are needed in order to transport LNG from its production location to centres of consumption.
In order to liquefy natural gas, it must be cooled down to less than -160° C (-256° F). High-quality equipment is needed to reach these temperatures. EEW offers SAW pipes for use in LNG storage tanks, LNG carriers, jetties lines, pipelines and pipe-in-pipe transmission lines. These pipes are made up of stainless steel and nickel alloys, among them 9% and 36% nickel steels. Impact tests are carried out at -196° C (-320° F) in order to ensure best performance of our products.
