Honeywell’s natural gas technology and process automation have been selected by Texas LNG to remove contaminants from natural gas in preparation for liquefaction and export to customers around the globe. The two-phase project, located on the north shore of the Port of Brownsville’s deep-water ship channel, will produce four million tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) beginning in 2020.

Texas LNG will use Honeywell’s UOP Amine Guard FS process to reduce acid gas to very low levels and its proprietary adsorbents to remove water, mercury and sulphur from the natural gas, which is necessary for LNG transport.

Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS), will serve as the integrated main automation contractor (I-MAC), making it responsible for designing, delivering and installing the automation, instrumentation, controls, safety and security, operations management, and advanced planning and scheduling applications. Honeywell is also assisting Texas LNG through the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s front-end engineering and design (FERC FEED) process.

Honeywell will help Texas LNG reduce risks and minimise potential schedule delays by using its integrated solutions including LEAP, Honeywell’s lean project execution services, Experion PKS with Distributed Systems Architecture (DSA), Experion Security Integrator, Fault Tolerant Ethernet (FTE), Universal process and safety I/O, virtualisation, advanced control, Safety Manager, Fire and gas systems, OneWireless Network, Digital Video Manager (DVM), UniSim operator training simulator, DynAMo advanced alarm management software, and PHD data historian.
