Ferus Natural Gas Fuels and ENN Canada Corp. have formed a joint venture whereby the companies will construct, own and operate a pair of liquefied natural gas (LNG) liquefaction plants in Vancouver and Edmonton. These facilities will produce LNG to serve the heavy-duty trucking market and other high-horsepower applications.
Ferus specializes in building and operating cryogenic and micro-LNG plants and distribution equipment, and ENN Canada, which is developing LNG refueling infrastructure across the country, focuses on the construction and operation of LNG/LCNG stations. As operator, Ferus is responsible for the design, engineering, construction and operation of both facilities, in addition to the associated LNG and marketing and sales. ENN Canada has ‘committed to a significant amount of the LNG produced at these plants for its planned fueling stations,’ the companies say.
Both facilities will initially be built to produce 100,000 gallons of LNG per day, with the ability to expand as demand grows. Site selection will be determined within six months, and construction will be initiated immediately afterward. The first LNG is expected to be produced in early 2016.
Ferus is also a participant in the recently established Eagle LNG Partners consortium with Clean Energy Fuels Corp., GE Ventures and GE Energy Financial Services, in addition to working on LNG production with Encana Corp.
