“Natural gas provides significant environmental and cost benefits to high horsepower applications currently using diesel,” CEO of Ferus NGF, Dick Brown said in written statement. “Canada has an abundance of natural gas and Ferus NGF is playing a lead role in facilitating its use as a consumable engine fuel.”

The new LNG plant is “strategically” place in northwest Alberta and northeast B.C., the “heart of oil and gas activity.”

The plant is said to product 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. This is an addition to what the company calls “high horsepower application” for production in rail, mining, and remote power generation.

The company says they’re the “largest merchant LNG plant in Canada,” citing $17.5 billion of regulatory assents, and approximately $7.9 billion in commitments allocated across the energy sector since its inception in 2006.
