USA: Pivotal completes 1st LNG delivery to NASA
US LNG supplier, Pivotal LNG said on Tuesday it made its first delivery of liquefied natural gas to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Pivotal LNG won a contract to supply NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Huntsville, Alabama with LNG last fall.
“We are proud to have earned the trust and confidence of NASA to serve the historic agency,” said Tim Hermann, president, Pivotal. “It was a pleasure to work closely with the John F. Kennedy Space Center, who contracted the solicitation, and the MSFC professionals to understand the agency’s exclusive schedule of supplies, commodity specifications, and contracting terms.”
Pivotal is part of Southern Company, and is a subsidiary of Southern Company Gas.
Together, Pivotal and Southern Company Gas operate a network of LNG production facilities with the capacity to produce over 554,000 gallons per day and the ability to store more than 96 million gallons, according to Pivotal.
Pivotal, through its JAX LNG partnership with NorthStar Midstream, is also developing an LNG production facility in Jacksonville, Florida. The JAX LNG facility is expected to be in service by the second quarter 2018.
