Owner Team Consultation (Pty) Ltd have been awarded a contract by Gasconsult to assist with a pre-feasibility study for the development of a coal seam gas to liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in Botswana.

Gasconsult Limited is a UK based supplier of a proprietary and patented methane gas cycle liquefaction technology (ZR-LNG) for the production of LNG from feed gas. The ZR-LNG liquefaction process developed by Gasconsult is being developed for use in Botswana utilising a grant from the British Governments Innovate UK scheme.

ZR-LNG requires no external refrigerants, using the methane feedgas as the refrigerant medium and eliminating refrigerant extraction or storage equipment. Refrigerant supply logistics to remote locations are eliminated and there are no refrigerant make-up costs. Other advantages include high energy efficiency, low capital and operating cost, higher project returns and simplicity of operation. The absence of a liquid hydrocarbon refrigerant inventory also reduces fire and blast risk, enhancing safety. The ZR-LNG design has been validated by BP and a number of leading engineering companies active in the LNG sector.

Owner Team Consultation (OTC) will perform a market analysis and identify potential off-takers of LNG in Botswana. As part of the pre-feasibility study OTC will develop a capital cost for the facility in Botswana, develop potential EPC project partners, develop the upstream gas sourcing strategy and develop a financial model for the business.
