Alfa Laval wins SEK 80 million natural gas order in Saudi Arabia
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order from a Korean engineering company to supply heat exchangers for a natural gas project in Saudi Arabia. The order value is approximately SEK 80 million and delivery is scheduled for 2013.
The Alfa Laval heat exchangers will be used in a new major gas processing facility in Saudi Arabia where they will be recovering energy in the gas cleaning process, bringing down power consumption and CO2 emissions.
“Alfa Laval has a strong position in the oil and gas markets and has delivered reliable products and solutions for the demanding gas cleaning processes for many years. This order is also a direct result of our strong presence both in Korea and Saudi Arabia”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
Did you know that… in 2010 Saudi Arabia had proven natural gas reserves estimated at 264 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), the fifth largest in the world after countries such as Russia and Qatar?
