Chart E&C Receives FLNG Liquefaction Equipment Order From Black & Veatch

CLEVELAND, July 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc. (Chart) (Nasdaq:GTLS) today announced that Black & Veatch has awarded its wholly-owned subsidiary, Chart Energy & Chemicals, Inc., a contract in excess of $20 million for the supply of brazed aluminum heat exchangers (BAHX) and cold boxes for the recently announced Golar LNG Limited (Nasdaq: GLNG) floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project. The BAHX will be engineered and manufactured in Chart's recently expanded La Crosse, Wisconsin plant and delivered to Chart's waterside cold box fabrication facility in New Iberia, Louisiana, where they will be installed in cold boxes before being shipped to Singapore.

The Golar FLNG project involves the conversion of a former LNG carrier, the Hilli, to a floating liquefaction plant. Keppel Shipyard in Singapore is responsible for the provision of the design, detailed engineering and procurement of the marine systems and all of the conversion-related construction services. The Hilli will arrive at Keppel Shipyard within 3 to 4 months. This project represents the second time that Black & Veatch and Chart have teamed together to provide a liquefaction solution for FLNG.

BAHX offers stable and superior thermal and hydraulic performance compared to other heat exchanger technologies. The resultant compact modular solution is ideal for FLNG applications where space and weight are of paramount importance. BAHX also have demonstrated superior operational performance and dependability in motion environments.

"We are very pleased that, once again, Black & Veatch has chosen to partner with Chart for the supply of the mission critical heat exchangers for this key project, further demonstration of BAHX as the preferred technology for LNG," commented Mike Durkin, President of Chart Energy & Chemicals.

Black & Veatch is combining its licensed PRICO® LNG technology with its global engineering, procurement and construction capabilities and will perform process design, detailed engineering, specify and procure topside equipment, and provide commissioning support.
