Lloyd’s Register and NUS Engineering join forces to develop solidified natural gas (SNG) technology for natural gas storage

A research contract agreement has been signed between researchers from NUS Engineering and Lloyd’s Register Global Technology Centre Pte Ltd. A team from the NUS Centre for Energy Research & Technology (CERT), led by Praveen Linga, Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, is developing a novel and cost-effective technology – storage of natural gas as solidified natural gas (SNG) via clathrate hydrates. SNG technology involves storing natural gas in the form of ice-like crystalline compounds often referred as ‘gas hydrates’.

This research project is funded in part under the Energy Innovation Research Programme (EIRP), which is administrated by the Energy Market Authority (EMA), and funded by the National Research Foundation (NRF). Lloyd’s Register Global Technology Centre Pte Ltd, the industry collaborator, will provide significant cash contributions and in-kind contributions to this project.
