SPATCO Energy Solutions, North American distributor for Galileo USA, announced the sale of the first North American Galileo Cryobox® Nano Station to Terra Energy Group. Scheduled to be operational in early 2015, the Cryobox will capture natural gas that would otherwise be flared off from the oil and gas fields in North Dakota, converting the well-head gas into more than 8,000 gallons of LNG per day.
“The Galileo Cryobox, with its scalable capacity, adaptable footprint and portability, offers companies a time-efficient and cost-effective LNG production solution,” said Jeff Dailey, president and CEO of SPATCO. “By fulfilling an unmet need, in this case in the oil and gas production arena, the Cryobox will play an important role in the ramp up of the natural gas infrastructure across all applications in North America. We are particularly pleased that this first installation for Terra Energy will be positive for the environment as well as the industry.”
Galileo successfully debuted the Cryobox as a multi-unit, dual fuel, CNG and LNG production plant serving Buquebus. Each Cryobox is modular, scalable, easy to install and maintain, and capable of generating both LNG and CNG at low operating costs. Cryobox units are remotely monitored and compliant with all international standards. The units operate with little environmental impact, generating low levels of noise and vibration with no emissions.
“We spent many months looking for an economic, transportable and scalable option capable of converting the gas that is being flared at many North American oil and gas wells into a transportable liquid,” said Dustin Hancock, president of Terra Energy. “After visiting the Buquebus liquefaction operations and the Galileo manufacturing facilities in Argentina, we gained the confidence we needed that the Galileo Cryobox was the right solution.”
