The plant, which became commercially operational in May, 2014, is strategically located in Elmworth, Alberta, about 65 kilometers southwest of Grand Prairie. It can produce up to 50,000 gallons per day of LNG and has capacity to expand up to 250,000 gallons per day of LNG. “Regionally focused small-scale LNG plants like the one we have built ensure proximal and reliable supply for our customers,” said Dick Brown, CEO of Ferus Natural Gas Fuels Inc. (Ferus NGF).
The high-quality LNG produced can fuel engines used in drilling rigs, pressure pumping services, water heating for well fracturing and heavy-duty highway and off-road trucks. 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 specialized mobile storage and dispensing equipment to provide full-service fueling solutions.
“In order for customers to make the switch to natural gas they need a high level of certainty and trust. Ferus NGF is successfully fueling oil and gas operations and on-road trucking with natural gas and our business plans include the wide-spread build-out of LNG and CNG infrastructure to provide regional supply and service across multiple high horsepower industries in North America,” added Brown.
He also stated: “Natural gas provides significant environmental and cost benefits to high horsepower applications currently using diesel. Canada has an abundance of natural gas and Ferus NGF is playing a lead role in facilitating its use as a consumable engine fuel.”
