Cryopeak LNG Solutions has begun construction of an LNG production facility located in Fort Nelson, British Columbia, capable of producing up to 90,000 gallons of LNG per day. Cryopeak’s new site is the first fully funded and permitted LNG production facility in the Fort Nelson area. A key feature of the plant design incorporates a new truck loading system that optimizes loading of Cryopeak’s fleet of LNG Super-B tankers. The plant will be modular in its design with minimal installation requirements at site.
This project marks an important breakthrough for energy supply to the region as the facility will be the closest LNG production point to Northern Canada and portions of Alaska. It allows communities and remote industries to secure a lower cost and a more environmentally sustainable fuel source.
Business opportunities for local construction workers, service companies, and operations personnel will become available for the construction of the facility, and for the distribution of LNG to Northern Canada from a new transportation hub, located within the municipality of Fort Nelson. Cryopeak is partnering with Fort Nelson First Nations to develop business opportunities associated with the project.
Cryopeak has selected CryoSys, LLC for the liquefaction equipment to produce the LNG. “Our highly efficient optimized mixed refrigerant process and our ability to package the modular liquefaction plant in our workshop allows us to provide the lowest installation and operating costs for a small-scale LNG plant in the LNG marketplace,” said Neil Karr, president of CryoSys.
This project is in line with Cryopeak’s strategy of being a vertically integrated and full-service provider of LNG to Northern Canada and Alaska. The company is focused on providing customers a lower cost, more environmentally sustainable fuel source.
