Second Line Raises LNG Nameplate to 170,000 Gallons Per Day
Applied LNG said this morning that it’s completed construction of its second liquefied natural gas production train at Topock, Ariz. The new liquefier has a nameplate capacity of 86,000 gallons per day, bringing LNG production capability at Topock to more than 170,000 gallons per day.
“Construction was completed in record time, at a fraction of the cost of similar projects and, most importantly, with no accidents or injuries,” Applied LNG president and CEO Cem Hacioglu said in a release.
“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 United States,” he said.
‘A Monumental Achievement’
“This is a monumental achievement for our company,” Hacioglu said. “We look forward to carrying this momentum as we further expand our operational footprint with our new production platform in Texas.”
Applied said earlier this year that it had bought 31 acres of land in Midlothian, Texas, where it plans to build as many as five liquefiers and be able to store up to 1.5 million gallons of LNG (F&F, March 18). The first 86,000-gallon Texas liquefier is scheduled to start production in early 2015.
