John Crane to supply sealing to Australian LNG project

John Crane, a manufacturer of seals and associated products for the oil and gas, pulp and paper, chemical, pharmaceutical and mining sectors, has been awarded a contract to supply engineered sealing technology to a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production project in Australia.

The company will supply 96 of its Type 28 gas seals for first-fit applications to Siemens, which will provide compressors for the upstream section of the AP-LNG project in Queensland.

This project will involve extracting and transporting coal seam gas for conversion into LNG in the future.

The order also includes the supply of 216 of John Crane’s tilting pad journal and double-thrust hydrodynamic bearings.
