LNG production platform set for Midlothian

Applied Natural Gas Fuels Inc. plans to build a multi-liquefier liquefied natural gas (LNG) production platform in Midlothian.
The Westlake Village, Calif. company, one of the largest producers and marketers of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the U.S., said it has completed the purchase of 31 acres of land in RailPort Business Park in Midlothian. The plant will consist of up to five liquefiers with a production capacity of 86,000 LNG gallons per day per liquefier and a total on-site storage of 1.5 million LNG gallons.


In addition to acquiring the land, the company said it has initiated purchase of storage tanks, production skids and the electric motor and compressor unit.
“Midlothian is a perfect location to build our plant,” said Cem Hacioglu, president and CEO of ANGF. “In addition to having all the required amenities to construct a state-of-the art facility, Midlothian’s strategically important location will allow us to tap into a wide range of customers in fast growing verticals.”
The Midlothian plant, which is expected to be operational in mid-2015, will focus on end users in the high-horsepower, trucking, oil and gas, rail, marine, remote power and mining markets that currently use diesel fuel and are interested in converting to natural gas, according to the company.
