Applied LNG Completes Second LNG Production Train in Arizona
Applied LNG, which recently changed its name from Applied Natural Gas Fuels, announced the completion of its second LNG production train in Topock, Arizona. Located adjacent to Applied’s first production train, the new liquefier has a nameplate production capacity of 86,000 gallons per day, which brings the company’s LNG production capacity to over 170,000 gallons per day. “Construction was completed in record time, at a fraction of the cost of similar projects and, most importantly, with no accidents or injuries,” said Cem Hacioglu, Applied LNG’s President and CEO. “We look forward to carrying this momentum as we further expand our operational footprint with our new production platform in Texas.” Earlier this year, Applied announced the purchase of 31 acres of land in Midlothian, Texas, to build up to five liquefiers and store up to 1.5 million gallons of LNG. Each liquefier will produce an estimated 86,000 LNG gallons per day. With the second liquefier in Topock online, and the first Texas liquefier scheduled to start production in early 2015, Applied LNG is positioned to meet the growing demand for LNG in a broad range of industries.
