Singapore: LNG Terminal to Develop Data Center

and Biomolecular Engineering and the leader of the project team.A five-member team from NUS Engineering, Keppel Data Centers and SLNG will jointly develop a prototype of a new cooling medium that can achieve two key functions: firstly, to efficiently store and carry cold energy from the Singapore LNG Terminal to the various data centers, and secondly, to be circulated within the cooling loop in each data center to perform effective cooling.This novel technology, called Semiclathrate Thermal Energy Carrier System (ScTECS), can potentially enable data centers to improve their power usage effectiveness

Ice Studied for Alaska LNG Terminal

ASL Environmental Sciences has a contract for a three-year metocean-ice study program in Cook Inlet, Alaska for the proposed Alaska LNG Project terminal site. This turnkey metocean program includes program management, a PSO (protected species observer), vessel, HSE lead, data processing and analysis and engineering inputs. During the summer and fall of 2014 ASL deployed 3 Ice Profiler/ADCP moorings close to Nikiski, Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula. Each mooring consisted of an Ice Profiler, ADCP, CT and OBS Turbidity and was mounted in ASL’s designed bottom frame or a taut-line mooring. Eight

AXYS Records100th WatchKeeper Buoy Sale

AXYS Technologies Inc. announced the sale of its 100th WatchKeeper met ocean monitoring buoy to Construtora OAS S.A. (OAS) for an LNG project in Uruguay. OAS will use the WatchKeeper buoy to receive comprehensive environmental data, which will support their LNG terminal construction project in Montevideo. The WatchKeeper will transmit directional waves, a water column current profile, salinity, visibility, air temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction and precipitation. The data will be sent to OAS offices via real-time cellular and radio telemetries. AXYS

'Force Majeure' Declared on Damaged Mexican Gas Pipeline

by pipeline company TransCanada Corp and transports natural gas in a gaseous state to the terminal at Manzanillo. The damaged section of the TransCanada pipeline is located near the town of El Bordo, about 125 km (80 miles) inland from the port of Manzanillo, in Colima state. The Manzanillo LNG terminal, with a capacity of 3.8 million tons a year, started operations last year, and is a owned jointly by Samsung C&T, Mitsui Trading, and Korea Gas Corp, the world's biggest LNG buyer.
