On Tuesday, California-based Applied LNG officially cut the ribbon on its liquefied natural gas (LNG) production platform in Midlothian, Texas. The company refers to the facility as the Dallas-Midlothian LNG plant.
Located 30 minutes southeast of Dallas, the plant will serve high-horsepower applications, including trucking, oil and gas, agriculture, rail, marine, remote power, construction and mining. The facility will provide LNG to customers in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Louisiana.
The plant has an initial production capacity of 30 million gallons of LNG per year. Applied LNG says that at full build-out, the facility will have up to six liquefiers, for a total production capacity of 180 million gallons per year, as well as up to 1.5 million gallons of storage. Plans also include an on-site truck fueling station.
Dallas-Midlothian LNG’s initial liquefaction train is the company’s third liquefier along with the two currently in operation at the Needle Mountain LNG plant, located near Topock, Ariz.
Greg Roche, vice president of sales and marketing for Applied LNG, commented, “We look forward to the next step of the project, making our first LNG deliveries to customers later this year.”
