Alfa Laval, Lund, Sweden, has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers to a liquefied natural gas plant for processing of shale gas in the United States. The order is worth approximately $7.8 million and delivery is scheduled for 2014.

The heat exchangers will be used in a new gas processing facility, where they will recover and reuse heat in the gas cleaning process. The order is the second large order placed this year from for this particular gas processing facility.
