Ferus Natural Gas Fuels has opened Canada’s first merchant liquefied natural gas facility in Elmworth, Alberta.
The LNG plant is 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. 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 systems.
Currently, the facility 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.
Earlier this year Stolt-Nielsen Gas, SunLNG Holding and LNGaz teamed up to provide natural gas to remote mining operations and other industrial customers in northeast Canada at a lower cost than diesel and residual fuel oil, which are the primary energy sources today. The startup company focuses on the development of small-scale LNG liquefaction and logistics services in Bécancour, Québec, Canada.
