Applied Natural Gas Fuels Inc. (ANGF) is developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) production facility in Midlothian, Texas, that will include up to five liquefiers and a total production capacity of up to 430,000 gallons per day. About 1.5 million gallons of on-site LNG storage will also be built.
ANGF says the target markets for the LNG produced in Midlothian include the trucking, rail, marine and high-horsepower segments.
‘The Midlothian plant is an important step in ANGF's continuing efforts to expand its footprint to provide cost-effective LNG to a growing number of customers,’ says Cem Hacioglu, ANGF president and CEO.
The company notes that it has already secured the land and begun the permitting process. The plant is expected to be operational in mid-2015. ANGF currently operates an LNG production facility in Topock, Ariz., will produce about 170,000 gallons per day once a second liquefier comes online in July 2014.
