Applied LNG is to break ground on a multi liquefier LNG production platform in Midlothian, Texas. The Midlothian Plant will consist of up to five liquefiers with a production capacity of 86 000 LNG gal./d, per liquefier, and a total on site storage of up to 1.5 million LNG gal.
The official groundbreaking , scheduled for 20 November 2014, will mark the start of construction on the first LNG facility in the northwest Texas region, and is expected to be operational in mid-2015. The Midlothian Plant 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 a lower cost, cleaner burning alternative.
Cem Hacioglu, President and CEO of Applied LNG, commented: “The natural gas industry in Texas is growing rapidly and production and storage facilities are vital to further industry enhancement. Midlothian is a perfect location to build our first production platform in Texas. In addition to having all the required amenities to construct a state of the art facility, Midlothian’s strategic location will allow us to tap into a wide range of customers in fast growing verticals, and the company has already been taking order in this desirable market. The Midlothian Plant is also an important step in Applied’s continuing efforts to expand its footprint to provide cost effective LNG to a growing number of customers.
City, council and state officials will join Applied LNG leadership and the Midlothian Economic and Development Corporation for a ceremonial groundbreaking and reception, on site in Midlothian.
Invited guests include Commissioner David Porter, Railroad Commission of Texas, State Representative Jason Isaac, State Representative-elect John Wray, City of Midlothian Mayor Bill Houston, and Ellis County Representative Jim Pitts.
