Applied LNG said it will break ground on a multi-liquefier LNG production platform in Midlothian, Texas.
The Midlothian Plant 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 up to 1.5 million LNG gallons.
The official groundbreaking, scheduled for November 20, will mark the start of construction on the first LNG facility in the northwest Texas region, and is expected to be operational in mid-2015, according to Applied LNG.
The Midlothian Plant 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.
