Golar LNG Limited (NASDAQ: GLNG) announced last week that it has executed agreements for conversion of the 126,000 m3 LNG carrier Gandria to a Golar floating liquefaction facility ("GoFLNG"). As with the GoFLNG Hilli and Gimi conversions, the primary contract for the GoFLNG Gandria was entered into with Singapore's Keppel Shipyard Limited ("Keppel"). The Gandria conversion contract marks the exercise of the second of two options that formed part of the initial 2014 Hilli conversion contract.

Praxair, Inc. (NYSE: PX) also last week announced the introduction of its patented OPTIMELTTM thermochemical regenerator system. The company's technology productively recovers waste energy from furnace flue gases, reducing emissions and improving the energy efficiency of glass production.  Through the process, incoming natural gas is heated and reacted with a portion of waste flue gas to produce a hot syngas fuel that captures both the heat and chemical potential of the waste stream. This process can result in a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 20 percent compared to oxy-fuel glass furnaces and as high as 30 percent when compared to air-fuel furnaces. In addition to increased productivity, reduced emissions and fuel savings, the OPTIMELT system delivers operational benefits that help ensure production of high-quality glass. The OPTIMELT system equipment is custom designed by Praxair and can be installed with new furnaces or retrofitted to existing facilities.  PX closed up on Tuesday at $115.38 on over 1.9Million shares traded by the market close.

Air Products (NYSE: APD) highlighted the reliability and efficiency of its medical oxygen supply systems-including high efficiency systems that reduce oxygen loss and systems for emergency oxygen supply-at the 52nd ASHE Annual Conference and Technical Exhibition in Boston, Mass., held during July 12-15.  Air Products offers High Efficiency Supply Systems for liquid oxygen that can reduce the loss of normally vented oxygen by as much as 30 percent. Using patent-pending technology, these systems first pull oxygen in the form of a gas, rather than a liquid, to eliminate a rise in the tank's pressure, thereby reducing the product loss by venting that would otherwise result. Depending on volume requirements, Air Products' High Efficiency Supply Systems can work with many medical or industrial gases applications that employ batch/intermittent usage or start-and-stop consumption.  APD closed up at $132.82 on Tuesday on over 1.7Million shares traded by the market close.
