Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)


Repsol develops liquefaction technologies to economically and competitively take advantage of natural gas reserves, while at the same time studying alternative means such as the conversion of gas into liquid fuels, placing us at a more relevant position within the sector.

LNG is natural gas after undergoing a liquefaction process that converts it into a liquid state, making it easier and safer to transport. Although it is very useful, some reserves are located in areas at a great distance from the consumption centres, which makes this process vitally important.

The liquefaction systems can also be designed for installation on floating platforms that make it possible to access the most remote offshore fields.

The goal at Repsol  is to achieve a solid technological position in all elements of the LNG chain. This way, we contribute to taking full advantage of the gas reserve portfolio, using this monetisation method.

In the area of liquefaction, technological activity focuses on the selection and conceptual design of the transformation processes adapted to the size of the plant, as well as analytical support to the operating centres. In the area of maritime transport, technological activity focuses on predicting changes in the composition of the liquefied gas caused by the evaporation of its elements. Finally, Repsol undertakes monitoring activities on new technologies that may be applicable to the regasification process.

In Repsol's technology sphere, although the primary focus is LNG, there is also a significant focus on other technologies from alternative chains such as GTL (Gas to Liquids).

The activity is organised into five lines of work that cover all elements of the LNG chain and the alternative chains:
