LNG Information Exchange
MHT Technology Ltd.’s Product Manager Marcus Webster recently travelled to China to support Endress+Hauser (MHT’s parent company) in visiting customers at various LNG sites. His expertise was vital in providing a deeper understanding of LNG solutions and how MHT can further develop their software to serve the needs of the Chinese market.
China is now the largest oil and natural gas importer and the market for LNG in China is experiencing a period of growth. In 2018 the country imported 53 million tonnes of LNG and this is projected to reach 95 million tonnes in 2025 according to a report from Rystad Energy. E+H is contributing to this growth by offering level and temperature measurement equipment, LNG Tank Management software and services via their Shanghai-based Sales Centre.

MHT’s LNG Tank Management System (LMS) and Mini Receiver provide an interface to LTD, level and temperature devices from all leading manufacturers. Their Rollover Prediction software ensures the safe storage of LNG and enables LNG to be sourced from different suppliers, giving terminals significant cost savings.
Marcus Webster stated, “I travelled to China to meet with our Sales Centre colleagues and provide training on the LNG Rollover facility in Tankvision LMS. While there I took the opportunity to visit customers to promote E+H’s LNG solutions. It was a great pleasure and honour to visit Tianjin LNG to learn about how they use their LNG software and discover ways to make our software even more useful to operators dealing with and averting rollover events.”
