Ferus NGF opens first merchant LNG facility in Canada

Ferus Natural Gas Fuels opened the first merchant liquefied natural gas facility in Canada.

The facility, which became commercially operational in May, is located about 65 kilometres southwest of Grand Prairie.

Ferus NGF’s Elmworth LNG plant is strategically located in the heart of oil and gas activity in northwest Alberta and northeast British Columbia, and produces high-quality LNG fuel for engines used in drilling rigs, pressure pumping services, water heating for well fracturing and heavy-duty highway and off-road trucks, Ferus said in a statement.

Other high horsepower applications for this LNG are in rail, mining, and remote power generation. To support the entire LNG supply chain, Ferus NGF has also designed and built specialised 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 the capacity to expand up to 250,000 gallons per day of LNG.

Natural gas as a fuel is gaining support and traction from both industry and political leaders. As emission standards continuously evolve and companies strive to meet them while simultaneously finding ways to reduce operating costs, natural gas is positioned to become the fossil fuel of choice in North America, Ferus added.
