Emission reduction measures undertaken/to be undertaken at a facility (only relevant for calculated baselines)
Reduction of GHGs from turbines
• Waste heat recovery units are installed on gas turbine exhausts. These provide heat for the hot oil system and the dehydration regeneration gas system.
• GE LM2500+G4 aero-derivative gas turbines are used. They are among the most fuel efficient turbines available.
• Inlet air-cooling is used which improves the efficiency of the turbines.
Reduction of GHGs from flaring
• Ground flares are used. This type of flare burns more cleanly than the conventional elevated pipe.
• The ability to send Boil-off gas and vapour returned from ship loading to LNG storage rather than flaring it.
Reduction of GHGs from venting and fugitive emissions
• The impact of vented emissions arise from the acid gas rejection unit, the nitrogen rejection unit and from equipment maintenance has been minimised by designing a facility so that a larger portion, in comparison to other LNG facilities, of vented emission is captured and sent to the flare for combustion.
• Fugitive emissions of methane arise from equipment including piping connectors, valves, pumps and flanges have been minimised by designing the facility to contain as few piping connectors and flanges as possible.
