Applied LNG Breaks Ground on LNG Production Plant
On Thursday, Applied LNG broke 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 gallons. The Midlothian Plant will be the first LNG facility in the northwest Texas region, and it is expected to be operational in mid-2015. 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. City, county and state officials joined Applied LNG leadership and the Midlothian Economic Development Corporation for a ceremonial groundbreaking and reception on-site in Midlothian.
