Applied Natural Gas Fuels (ANGF) has completed the purchase of 31 acres of land in RailPort Business Park in Midlothian, Texas, to build a multi-liquefier LNG production platform.
The Midlothian LNG platform will consist of up to five liquefiers, with a combined production capacity of 86 000 gall./d of LNG and a total on-site storage of 1.5 million gall. of LNG.
The company has also executed purchase orders for all long lead items including storage tanks, production skids and the electric motor and compressor unit.
ANGF CEO, Cem Hacioglu, commented: “Midlothian is a perfect location to build our plant. In addition to having all the required amenities to construct a state-of-the art facility, Midlothian’s strategically important location will allow us to tap into a wide range of customers in fast growing verticals”.
The Midlothian LNG plant, which is expected to be operational in early 2015, will focus on end users in the high-horsepower, trucking, E&P, rail, marine, remote power generation and mining markets that currently use diesel fuel and are interested in converting to LNG.
LNG production capacity
ANGF is currently doubling the production capacity at its Topock, Arizona LNG plant by adding a second liquefier, which is scheduled to come on line in July 2014. When completed, the Topock LNG plant will produce approximately 172 000 gall./d of LNG.
Following the commissioning of all five liquefiers at the Midlothian LNG plant, ANGF's total production capacity will reach over 600 000 gall./d of LNG.
