Midwest LNG supplier keeping customers warm on sub-zero days

Kinetrix Energy – an LNG supplier in the Midwest US – has announced that it is continuing to keep customers warm even on sub-zero days.

Unlike in some cities where users have been urged to conserve gas, Kinetrix claims that its LNG supplies can be transferred into the distribution system for both commercial and residential use.

Aaron Johnson, CEO of Kinetrex Energy, said: “The importance of keeping customers warm cannot be underestimated, especially during weeks like this one when temperatures drop below zero for several days in a row.

“Thursday, gas customers throughout the Midwest were asked to turn down their thermostats to 65 degrees due the risk of natural gas shortages. Fortunately, our utility and industrial customers in states such as Ohio, West Virginia and right here in Indianapolis did not have these issues as our LNG was used and available to supplement pipeline natural gas supplies as needed.”

The company operates two LNG production facilities in Indianapolis, with a total of 2 billion ft3 of cryogenic storage capacity. Furthermore, the company can transport this LNG by tanker truck to places outside of Indianapolis for use elsewhere.

Johnson added: “Kinetrex’s ability to take natural gas wherever it needs to go gives us the ability to transport it to other states in case of natural gas shortages.”
