Heating Value Reduction of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) by Recovering Heavy Hydrocarbons: Technoeconomic Analyses Using Simulation-Based Optimization

Heating Value Reduction of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) by Recovering Heavy Hydrocarbons: Technoeconomic Analyses Using Simulation-Based Optimization

by Iftekhar Abubakar KARIMI

LNG is expected to play a major role in global natural gas trade. Implementing a heating value adjustment unit within regasification terminal allows importing of LNG from diverse sources around the world, thus increasing the energy security of the importing country. In this study, we have developed a superstructure for heavy hydrocarbons removal (HHR) as a strategy to reduce the heating value...

High-throughput computational screening

by Jiang Jianwen

We report a computational study to screen a large collection of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for the separation of a ternary gas mixture (CO2/N2/CH4) toward the upgrading of natural gas. By integrating Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulations, the adsorption, diffusion and permeation of the gas mixture are predicted. The structure-performance relationships are established betwee...
