Conocophillips Optimized CascadeSM Process Employed at World's Largest LNG Train

 
Atlantic LNG’s Train 4 is the third ConocoPhillips – Bechtel LNG train to achieve the distinction of being the largest operating LNG plant in the world at the time of its startup. In 1969, the ConocoPhillips-operated Kenai, Alaska plant pioneered the Pacific LNG trade. In 1999, the first train at Atlantic LNG held the record for the largest single train after its startup. Now Atlantic LNG’s Train 4 has reclaimed that record.
 
“The Optimized Cascade process has proven to be safe, reliable and flexible,” said Jim Rockwell, Manager of LNG Technology Licensing for ConocoPhillips.  “This is the first time we have used three gas turbine-compressor strings on a plant, a feature that adds even more operating flexibility to the process.”
 
“We are proud of the continuing accomplishments of LNG plants using the Optimized Cascade process,” said Errol Rapp, Project Director for Bechtel Corporation.  “We have achieved key project goals while demonstrating over fifteen million man-hours worked without a lost work-day incident.”
