NuBlu Energy has announced that it has started building an LNG plant along the Mississippi River in Port Allen, Louisiana, US.
The plant will support high-horsepower fuelling applications, such as rail, marine, long haul transportation, power generation, gas interruption, asphalt and other energy markets.
The facility will have an initial start-up capacity of 30 000 gal./d, which will rise to 90 000 gal./d at total capacity. It will also feature a storage capacity of 100 000 gal., and will be able to load both LNG transport trailers and ISO containers. The plant is expected to become operational in 2Q17.
Cory Duck, General Partner, NuBlu Energy, said: “This project represents the inauguration of a new direction for the LNG energy market. By ‘making LNG local’, NuBlu will foster the growth of LNG consumption for all current and future consumers of this clean energy fuel. Our patented process allows the production of LNG at a fraction of the cost per gallon of other existing liquefaction technologies and our modular design allows the facilities to be deployed at a relatively low capital outlay.”
Josh Payne, General Partner, NuBlu Energy, added: “Our site selection process was intense. We wanted to be positioned to meet the demands of the emerging marine market for both brown water and blue water fuelling and we absolutely believe we have achieved that goal.”
