Title
(EN) LEAN GAS LNG HEAVIES REMOVAL PROCESS USING NGL
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'ÉLIMINATION DE MINÉRAUX LOURDS DE GNL À GAZ PAUVRE À L'AIDE DE LGN
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed herein are systems and processes for removing heavies during the liquefaction of a natural gas. The processes include dissolving the heavies in the natural gas by adding external natural gas liquid (NGL), followed by a staged removal of the natural gas liquid (NGL) and dissolved heavies.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour éliminer des minéraux lourds pendant la liquéfaction d'un gaz naturel. Les procédés comprennent la dissolution des minéraux lourds dans le gaz naturel par ajout d'un liquide de gaz naturel (LGN) externe, suivi d'une élimination étagée du liquide de gaz naturel (LGN) et des minéraux lourds dissous.
