Title (EN) CONFIGURATIONS AND METHODS FOR POWER GENERATION IN LNG REGASIFICATION TERMINALS
(FR) CONFIGURATIONS ET METHODES DE PRODUCTION D'ENERGIE DANS DES TERMINAUX DE REGAZIFICATION DE GNL
Abstract:
(EN) Contemplated power producing configurations and methods use refrigeration cold of LNG to condense expanded vaporized natural gas produced in an expansion turbine, wherein the expansion turbine is driven by heated vaporized natural gas drawn from a vaporizer. Most typically, condensed expanded vaporized natural gas is combined with the LNG and fed to the vaporizer.
(FR) L'invention porte sur des configurations et méthodes de production d'énergie utilisant le froid de réfrigération du GNL pour condenser du gaz naturel vaporisé expansé produit par une turbine d'expansion entraînée par du gaz naturel vaporisé chauffé extrait d'un vaporiseur. Plus particulièrement le gaz naturel expansé vaporisé combiné au GNL alimente le vaporiseur.
