Westlake Village, CA (September 25, 2013) -- Applied Natural Gas Fuels, Inc. (ANGF), the second largest producer and marketer of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in the United States, announced its plans to build a multi-liquefier LNG production platform in Midlothian, Texas (the "Midlothian Plant"). The platform will consist of up to five liquefiers with a production capacity of 86,000 LNG gallons per day per liquefier and a total on-site storage of 1.5 million LNG gallons. ANGF has already secured the land and has begun the permitting process. "The Midlothian Plant is an important step in ANGF's continuing efforts to expand its footprint to provide cost-effective LNG to a growing number of customers," said Cem Hacioglu, ANGF's President and CEO.
The Midlothian Plant, which is expected to be operational in mid-2015, will focus on end users in the high-horsepower, trucking, oil and gas, rail, marine, remote power and mining markets that currently use diesel fuel and are interested in converting to a lower-cost, cleaner-burning alternative.
"LNG is a proven fuel with a strong track record that will continue to move us towards energy independence and a better way to fuel America" stated Hacioglu.
ANGF is currently in the process of doubling the production capacity at its LNG Plant in Topock, Arizona by adding a second liquefier which is scheduled to come on line in July 2014. When completed, the Topock Plant will produce about 170,000 LNG gallons per day. Upon commissioning of all five liquefiers at the Midlothian Plant, ANGF's total production capacity will reach over 600,000 LNG gallons per day. ANGF will announce the details of an open season for the Midlothian Plant and the remaining capacity at the Topock Plant in the upcoming weeks.
