Ferus Natural Gas Fuels Opens First Merchant LNG Facility in Canada
On Tuesday, Ferus Natural Gas Fuels (Ferus NGF) announced the grand opening of the first merchant LNG facility in Canada. The facility, which became commercially operational in May, 2014, is located in Elmworth, Alberta, about 40 miles southwest of Grand Prairie. Ferus NGF’s Elmworth LNG plant is strategically located amidst the oil and gas activity in northwest Alberta and northeast British Columbia, and produces LNG fuel for engines used in oil and gas productions, as well as for heavy duty highway and off-road trucks. Other high horsepower applications for this LNG include rail and mining. To support the entire LNG supply chain, Ferus NGF has also designed and built specialized mobile storage and dispensing equipment to provide full-service fueling solutions. Currently, the facility can produce up to 50,000 gallons per day of LNG and has capacity to expand up to 250,000 gallons per day of LNG. “Ferus NGF is successfully fueling oil and gas operations and on-road trucking with natural gas and our business plans include the wide-spread build-out of LNG and CNG infrastructure to provide regional supply and service across multiple high horsepower industries in North America,” said Dick Brown, CEO of Ferus NGF.
