NuBlu starts construction of Port Allen LNG plant
Texas-based NuBlu Energy said it has started the construction of its natural gas liquefaction plant in Port Allen, Louisiana.
The facility located along the Mississippi river is intended to support the region’s high-horsepower fueling applications such as rail, marine, long haul transportation, power generation, gas interruption, asphalt and other energy markets, the company said in its statement on Thursday.
It is expected that the plant will become operational in the second quarter of 2017.
At start-up, the production capacity will be at 30,000 gallons of liquefied natural gas per day, while at full build out the facility will be producing 90,000 gallons per day.
The facility will have a 100,000 gallons storage capacity and a loading facility for both LNG transport trailers as well as ISO containers, NuBlu said.
