Just a day after publicly announcing its new name, Applied LNG has announced the completion of its second LNG production train in Topock, Arizona. Located adjacent to Applied LNG’s first production train, the new liquefier has a nameplate production capacity of 86 000 gal./d, increasing the company’s LNG production capacity to over 170 000 gal./d.
Cem Hacioglu, Applied LNG's President and CEO, said that this was a “monumental achievement” for the company. “Construction was completed in record time, at a fraction of the cost of similar projects and, most importantly, with no accidents or injuries. It is a testament not only to the technical capabilities of our staff but also to their selfless dedication to our company and our vision to become the leading LNG production and marketing company in the US. We look forward to carrying this momentum as we further expand our operational footprint with our new production platform in Texas.”
Earlier this year, Applied LNG announced the acquisition of 31 acres of land in Midlothian, Texas, which would be used to build up to five liquefiers and store up to 1.5 million gal. of LNG. Each liquefier will produce an estimated 86 000 LNG gal./d. While the second liquefier in Topock is online, the first Texas liquefier is scheduled to begin production in early 2015.
“Applied LNG is well positioned to meet the growing demand for LNG from its existing and new customers in a broad range of industries,” a statement from the company said.
