30,000 Gallons Per Day at New Port Allen Facility
Heralds ‘New Direction for the LNG Energy Market’
NuBlu Energy is building a liquefied natural gas production facility in Port Allen, La. The first phase, to be operational late this year, is to see production capability of 30,000 gallons of LNG daily for “rail, marine, long haul transportation, power generation, gas interruption, asphalt and other energy markets.”
Initial on-site storage will be 100,000 gallons.
“Future phases will increase production to 90,000 gallons per day and LNG storage to 280,000 gallons,” the company says.
‘Making LNG Local’
“This project represents the inauguration of a new direction for the LNG energy market by ‘Making LNG Local,’ and more available to all energy markets,” states a release. NuBlu says it will “will foster the growth of LNG consumption for all current and future consumers of this clean energy fuel.”
“Our patented liquefaction technology allows us to make a gallon of LNG at a price that is competitive with larger scale facilities,” the company adds. “Our small footprint gives us the flexibility to build on any location compared to larger traditional technologies.
‘Closer to the End-User’
“One of the biggest costs today in acquiring LNG is the transport of the fuel to the needed location,” NuBlu says. “We have the ability to provide LNG closer to the end-user and thus lower or virtually eliminate those transport costs.
“Our technology also allows us to grow with the local and regional needs. We can scale our facilities from 10,000 to 1,000,000 gallons per day if the pipeline capacity is available.
“Very simply, our goal is for everyone to have a local and reliable supply of LNG.”
