LNG Processing

Compare your LNG performance to your industry peers on the basis of size, feedstock, age, and region. 

Designed to help participants better understand the activities and trends of today’s gas processing industry, Solomon’s Worldwide Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Processing Plant Performance Analysis (LNG Study) informs you on the status of your plant in all key performance areas, providing valuable information for performance improvement efforts. Our competitive performance assessment methodology for analyzing like-kind, field-level asset performance provides an actionable management tool to identify potential cost savings.

The LNG Study also allows you to compare your plant’s operations and maintenance costs with other plants on a common basis. Typical industry comparisons do not consider the complexity of operations, leading to unreliable benchmarks. By normalizing performance using Solomon’s EDC® metric, the LNG Study provides valid comparisons to other plants with varying facility configurations.

Study results can be used to formulate optimization plans to eliminate shortfalls, establish performance targets, and measure progress using our trusted metrics. Solomon is also available to guide you in identifying focus areas for improvement and closing gaps with peers.
