Africa LNG: The new Middle East

Major new discoveries of natural gas in many parts of Africa are leading to the development of a greatly expanded industry—leading some to call Africa the new Middle East of hydrocarbon development. The recent discoveries in Mozambique and Tanzania are particularly significant. At the same time, LNG processing and transport costs have rapidly declined, making it possible to sell the fuel at attractive prices to customers in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. This paper examines the state of LNG development in Africa.

Improved bed support for molecular sieve dehydrators and adsorbers

This paper provides details of an improved adsorbent bed support design that utilizes a superior sealing mechanism that features a fixed hold down ring design. The fixed hold down ring design provides an innovative method of sealing the expansion gap that will effectively eliminate the pathway by which molecular sieve granules and fines enter the expansion gap.
