“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.
“To support the entire LNG supply chain, Fernus NGF has also designed and built specialised mobile storage and dispensing equipment to provide full-service fuelling solution.”
Ferus NGF is privately held by The Energy & Minerals Groups, providing LNG and compressed natural gas fuelling services, which include liquefaction, compression, transportation, storage and delivery to industries.
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.
