Nitrogen is used in oil and gas drilling operations to help decrease water consumption.

An inauguration ceremony took place earlier today, to celebrate the completion of the first of two phases. There are currently 10 employees at the plant, including operators and drivers. At this point it can produce 200 tonnes of liquid nitrogen per day.

The second phase is scheduled to be operational by September 2013, finalizing an approximately $60 million investment. One additional operator will be added. Once both are complete, the plant will provide over 450 tonnes of liquid nitrogen per day to the oil and gas sector.
