Groundbreaking Slated for Thursday, November 20
Applied LNG has slated the groundbreaking for its new liquefied natural gas plant in Midlothian, Texas, immediately south of Dallas-Fort Worth, for late morning on Thursday, November 20.

Applied LNG is to host a groundbreaking for its new LNG plant in Midlothian, Texas, on Thursday, November 20.
Applied says it’s targeting end-users in the high-horsepower, trucking, oil and gas, rail, marine, remote power and mining markets that currently use diesel fuel.
‘A Perfect Location’
“The natural gas industry in Texas is growing rapidly and production and storage facilities are vital to further industry advancement,” Applied president and CEO Cem Hacioglu said in a release.
“Midlothian is a perfect location to build our first production platform in Texas,” he said. “In addition to having all the required amenities to construct a state-of-the art facility, Midlothian’s strategic location will allow us to tap into a wide range of customers in fast growing verticals, and the company has already been taking orders in this desirable market.
“The Midlothian Plant is also an important step in Applied’s continuing efforts to expand its footprint to provide cost-effective LNG to a growing number of customers,” Hacioglu said.
“LNG is a proven fuel with a strong track record that will continue to move us towards energy independence and a better way to fuel America.”
Applied LNG recently completed a second, 86,000-gallon-per-day LNG production train at its plant in Topock, Ariz. (F&F, June 11).
