Applied LNG had its official ribbon cutting ceremony for its LNG production platform in Midlothian, Texas on October 27t. Applied LNG hosted invited guests and attendees from the 2015 High Horsepower Summit taking place in Dallas. Guests of the event were treated to a lunch buffet and an opportunity to tour the facility.

“Dallas-Midlothian LNG increases our capabilities for delivering on our commitment to customers for reliable supply and superior service at competitive prices,” stated Greg Roche, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Applied LNG. “We look forward to the next step of the project, making our first LNG deliveries to customers later this year.”

Dallas-Midlothian LNG, located 30 minutes southeast of Dallas, has an initial production capacity of 30 million gallons of LNG per year. At full build-out, the plant will have up to six liquefiers, for a total production capacity of 180 million gallons per year, and up to 1.5 million gallons of storage. Plans also include an on-site truck fueling station. Dallas-Midlothian LNG will serve high-horsepower applications including trucking, oil and gas, agriculture, rail, marine, remote power, construction and mining that currently use diesel or propane fuel and are interested in converting to a lower-cost, cleaner-burning alternative.

The plant will serve customers in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Louisiana. Dallas-Midlothian LNG’s initial liquefaction train is the company’s third liquefier along with the two currently in operation at the Needle Mountain LNG plant located near Topock, Arizona.
