BG May Introduce NGLs Extraction Plant at Trunkline LNG Facility

BG may build an NGL plant at Trunkline LNG terminal in Louisiana to extract natural gas liquids such as ethane and propane from the imported liquefied natural gas, according to the company’s vice president of business development. BG hopes that the plant will tackle the issue of heavy hydrocarbons in the imported supply that are not compatible with current benchmarks for US pipelines, and generate profits for the NGL market. The Nov. 14, 2005 issue of Natural Gas Week has the details. [Subscription required]
