The scope of the FEED work for the potential 4.4 million metric tonnes per year Train 2 project includes feed gas metering, liquefaction liquefaction, change of a substance from the solid or the gaseous state to the liquid state. Since the different states of matter correspond to different amounts of energy of the molecules making up the substance, energy in the form of heat must either be supplied to , refrigeration refrigeration, process for drawing heat from substances to lower their temperature, often for purposes of preservation. Refrigeration in its modern, portable form also depends on insulating materials that are thin yet effective. , ethylene storage, boil off gas compression, product transfer to storage and LNG product metering.
