Alfa Laval has received an order from JGC Corporation in Japan to supply heat exchangers for a new major natural gas project in Qatar.
The order value is just shy of US$14mn and delivery is scheduled for 2012.
The order placed by JGC Corporation, consists of various heat exchangers to the Barzan Onshore gas plant, located in Ras Laffan Industrial City, north of Doha.
The Alfa Laval heat exchangers will be used for recovering energy in the gas cleaning process and for process cooling of the overall gas plant.

This order confirms the continuously high activity within the oil and gas industry - and is also a direct result from our strong presence in Japan", says Lars Renstrom, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
