Air Products to Supply Four Cryogenic Heat Exchangers to Sonatrach’s Facility in Algeria

Air Products said in September it will provide four MCR Main Cryogenic Heat Exchangers (MCHEs) to Sonatrach, Algeria’s stateowned oil and gas company, for its GL1Z LNG facility in Arzew, Algeria. The four heat exchangers will each have 1.3 million tonnes per year production capacity and will replace four supplied by Air Products in 1977, which are some of the longest operating MCHEs in the world.

The four MCHEs will be installed in the proprietary AP-C3MR propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant liquefaction process at the multitrain facility.
