LUND, Sweden--(Business Wire)--
Regulatory News: 

Alfa Laval (STO:ALFA) - a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation
and fluid handling - has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers to an
LNG plant (Liquefied Natural Gas) in Australia. The order is worth approximately
SEK 50 million and delivery is scheduled to take place in 2013 and 2014. 

The Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers will be used in a new major gas
processing facility in Australia where they will recover and reuse heat in the
gas cleaning process, prior to the liquefaction. By reusing heat the compact
heat exchangers will contribute to bringing down energy consumption and CO2

"The natural gas cleaning process requires safe, reliable and efficient heat
exchangers. We cooperate with the biggest gas producers in the world and this
order confirms that we live up to their stringent demands", says Lars Renström,
President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. 

Did you know that… LNG is natural gas that has been cooled down to minus 162°C
to be liquefied for transport? Australia is set to become the second largest LNG
exporter behind Qatar by 2016, according to IEA (International Energy Agency).
