Gas Innovations in LNG expansion

Houston-based Gas Innovations said it has expanded its capability to supply refrigerant gases to LNG and FLNG liquefaction plants worldwide.

Gas Innovations is supplying projects from the U.S. Gulf Coast to Australia’s Coral Coast, said Ashley Madray, vice president and co-founder of Gas Innovations.

With companies building more plants and LNG increasingly recognized as a viable power source, our expanded capabilities to store and package hydrocarbon refrigerants mean that these projects can, in turn, expand,” Madray added.

The company has added a third bulk storage tank at its Texas facility, increasing its storage capacity from 12,000 to more than 27,000 gallons, it said in a statement posted on Wednesday.

This increased inventory allows the company to fill six ocean-going ISO containers with on-site volume, alone. And the enhanced storage at its facility is already being utilized to address large-scale needs.

Gas Innovations is currently in the midst of a project to load 25 5,000-gallon liquid ISOs of ethylene to ship to Africa, where an effort is underway to restart an LNG plant there.

The company is also concurrently servicing a large project in Australia, supplying sufficient quantities of ethane to start up a massive plant that will liquefy and ready for transport significant amounts of native natural gas, the statement added.
