Distributed
LNG Production Solutions

Small-Scale LNG

Our small-scale Distributed LNG Production Solutions maximize the use of gas from conventional and unconventional resources. They also capture and monetize gas when flared in the fields, or from organic waste from farm, urban or industrial activities.

The design of our solutions is based on our Cryobox® LNG-Production Station and the ZPTS® Plant for Gas Conditioning. Both units of proprietary design feature modular configurations which:

 

1. Monetize multiple gas sources.

2. Offer a scalable installed capacity which meets the increase in demand by incorporating units progressively.

3. Meet customized fuel needs both for high horsepower consumers and communities.

Scalable LNG Production

No pipes: LNG from any gas source, directly to consumers

Through the small-scale LNG Distributed Production, we reduce the size of the gas molecule by 600 times, facilitating its transportation through the Virtual Pipeline. Hence, a direct connection between gas sources and the people who benefit the most from a clean and cheap fuel – LNG, is established. This is how we offer the possibility to monetize resources which previously lacked value, or to expand the reach of infrastructure reducing CAPEX.

Our Technology

Cryobox LNG Distributed Production

Cryobox® LNG-Production Station

The Cryobox LNG-Production Station is a fuel producing unit that offers approximately 15 metric tons per day of LNG.

Portability / plug-and-play

Every Cryobox module has the size of a 40 feet sea container, which facilitates its delivery in a single trailer and multiple relocations in reduced footprint plant areas.

The installation requires only concrete pads for its erection and connection to gas sources, electricity services, compressed air and internet.

Compresor MX 400 - Tecnología de Galileo
Proprietary technology

Its multi-stage liquefaction cycle eliminates possible inert contents and is powered by a 450 kW motor connected to a MX 400 Galileo Compressor.

Recuperación del boil-off para su licuefacción - Galileo Technologies
Boil-off free

The automatic boil-off recovery system provides emission-free LNG storage and loading. This feature avoids natural gas waste, ensuring safe operations in compliance with environmental regulations.

Start-up record time

Its cold start-up capacity allows it to reach peak production in only 10 minutes, without energy losses nor inefficiencies. This is a clear advantage of Cryobox when compared to mid-scale or large-scale plants that require 12 to 18 hours to start production.

Panel prioritario de carga de GNL - Galileo Technologies
Easy and fast loading

The transfer of LNG to storage tanks can be completed without the use of pumps. Through the priority panel, LNG can be sent from those tanks to distribution trailers, to industrial vehicles or to equipment for immediate consumption.

Multiple fuels for every need

Besides producing LNG/LBM, Cryobox offers Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or Compressed Biomethane (Bio-CNG*) on demand. This way, both fuels are simultaneously available, ready to meet every need, for example: CNG/Bio-CNG for light-duty vehicles and LNG/Bio-LNG for high horsepower applications.

*Bio-CNG is the same as Compressed Biomethane Gas (CBG) or Compressed Biomethane (CBM) / **Bio-LNG is the same as Liquefied Biomethane Gas (LBG) or Liquefied Biomethane (LBM)

24/7 monitoring

The operation runs entirely unmanned and includes a 24/7 remote monitoring through Galileo Technologies SCADA System.

ZPTS® Plant for Gas Conditioning

The ZPTS Plant conditions all types of gas: from high CO2 content sources, as in biomethane, to simpler compositions of gas that barely require dehidration.

We increase competitiveness in every project

Licuefacción con bajo consumo energético - Galileo Technologies
Low energy consumption

With an energy consumption of 300 kW at the gas conditioning stage and 400kW at the liquefaction stage, this process offers one of the lowest energy consumption levels in the market: 0.7 kilowatts per LNG kilogram (kWh/kg).

Más de 99% de disponibilidad en licuefacción - Galileo Technologies
High availability

The minimization of dynamic components, use of fluids and labor ensure an autonomous operation rate over 99%. This is especially important for the operation in remote areas, such as hydrocarbon fields.

Installation record time

Focused on LNG immediate availability, the installation and commissioning phases are completed at record times in the industry.

Buquebus success case

By way of example and according to our experience, a liquefaction plant equipped with six Cryobox units connected to a ZPTS Plant can be installed in 6 months, while a Mini plant, with similar LNG production capacity, requires 24 to 36 months in average.
