Kinetrex Energy LNG Facility Opens in Indiana
Kinetrex Energy, a subsidiary of Indianapolis utility Citizens Energy Group, recently celebrated the opening of an LNG facility in Beech Grove, Indiana. It is the second LNG facility Kinetrex has opened in eight months. In attendance at the opening ceremony were T. Boone Pickens, Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann, State Representative Randy Frye, Mayor Greg Ballard and Beech Grove City Council President Ed Bell. Between its two facilities, Kinetrex is capable of supplying in excess of 200,000 gallons of LNG per day to the transportation, off-highway high horsepower and industrial markets. “The private sector is leading where Washington isn’t, and Kinetrex should be applauded for that, and for its efforts to reduce America’s costly and dangerous dependence on OPEC oil,” said Pickens. Kinetrex expects LNG demand in the Midwest to exceed 500,000 gallons per day by 2020.
