Linde LLC has announced that it has collaborated with Prometheus Energy Group to help a utility in Pennsylvania, US, to maintain sufficient gas line pressure in its local network.
Linde supported Prometheus' operations by supplying two large LNG storage trailers and two special vaporisers that inject natural gas at the correct temperature, pressure, and flow rate into the utility's pipeline system.
Leslie Waller, Head of Chemistry, Energy and Environmental for Linde Americas, said: "Because this was a short-term project, our mobile LNG equipment and our unique customer service capabilities were critical to ensuring that the utility's local customers had sufficient natural gas service during the cold winter months […] We are experiencing similar demand from other utilities around the country during extreme temperature swings in both the summer and winter seasons."
Prometheus Energy had two other installations with their client and requested Linde as a subcontractor for this third project. Linde had the appropriate equipment available and extensive experience in the utility industry to provide the gas line pressure required for the utility's 700 000 customers.
Jim Aivalis, CEO of Prometheus Energy, said: "Prometheus has been very active supporting utilities and industrial customers throughout the US […] We were called upon as a preferred supplier to complete a project with limited planning time. We turned to Linde as a subcontractor for available equipment and support based on their experience, capabilities and equipment solutions. Our customer was very satisfied with the level of service and the commitment to safety demonstrated by Prometheus with our collaboration with the Linde Group."
