Applied LNG Announces Completion of Second LNG Production Train in Topock, Arizona
Applied LNG (Applied) is pleased to announce the completion of its second Liquefied Natural Gas (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.
“This is a monumental achievement for our company,” said Cem Hacioglu, Applied LNG's President and CEO. “Construction was completed in record time, at a fraction of the cost of similar projects and, most importantly, with no accidents or injuries. It is a testament not only to the technical capabilities of our staff but also to their selfless dedication to our company and our vision to become the leading LNG production and marketing company in the United States. 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 well positioned to meet the growing demand for LNG from its existing and new customers in a broad range of industries.
