31 Acres in Midlothian, and Equipment, for Liquefaction Plant
Applied Natural Gas Fuels said today that it’s completed the purchase of 31 acres in the RailPort Business Park in Midlothian, Texas, for a new liquefied natural gas facility slated to come on line in early 2015. In addition, ANGF “has executed purchase orders for all long lead items such as storage tanks, production skids and the electric motor and compressor.”
The Midlothian LNG plant will have up to five liquefaction units, each able to produce 86,000 gallons per day and total on-site storage of 1.5 million LNG gallons. Plans were announced last year (F&F, September 25).
“Midlothian is a perfect location to build our plant,” ANGF president and CEO Cem Hacioglu said in a release. “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.”
NGVs and HHP Markets, Doubling at Topock Too
ANGF is looking to provide LNG for both natural gas vehicles for road transportation and for such high-horsepower applications as rail, marine, mining, remote power and energy exploration and production (E&P).
ANGF is also doubling the production capacity at its Topock, Ariz. LNG plant, adding a second liquefier to come on line in July 2014. The expansion will take Topock capacity to approximately t 172,000 LNG gallons per day.
“Upon commissioning of all five liquefiers at the Midlothian LNG plant, ANGF’s total production capacity will reach over 600,000 LNG gallons per day,” the firm says.
