International LNG congress London: CRYOTECs CEO spoke about own experiences and new technologies at the international conference

The importance of LNG in gas market cannot be overestimated. It offers an opportunity to diversify energy supplies and is seen as an alternative fuel. As a result, the global LNG demand is forecasted to grow from 296 billion cubic meters in 2010 to over 560 billion cubic meters in 2020, at about 0.6 % per year (Source: CEDIGAZ and BGS).

World leading LNG-companies’ top management and key specialists attended the event in London to find new partners and to discuss the current LNG market situation. In this context CRYOTEC’s CEO, Mr. Ulf Henkel, and Business Development Director Marius Baake have presented the own experiences in a worldwide fast growing small scale LNG market. Additionally, the two experts represented a case study with some economic aspects about a new erected liquefaction plant for Gazprom in Perm, Russia.

International conference: EPC-technologies are in high demand in Chad

EPC Group, represented by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Cryotec Anlagenbau GmbH, participated at the international “Oil, Mining and Energy Conference & Showcase” in the Republic of Chad. Cryotec provides engineering expertise and manufactures plants for the air separation, CO2 recovery and liquefied natural gas (LNG) production.

EPC’s technology for LNG generated a lot of interest. The technology enables energy to be distributed to remote areas that are not connected to a natural gas pipeline. Furthermore, this system enables the storage and provision of natural gas in times of peak demands.

The government of Chad announced that it is looking for intelligent and economical engineering solutions for its house-building plan. EPC presented its innovative technology solution for the industrial production of pre-fabricated concrete parts.

Usage of pre-fabricated concrete parts can significantly reduce house-building costs and reduce construction times.

Attendees and participants at the conference were primarily from Chad but also from surrounding African countries.
