Edge LNG Opens Permian Facility
US Edge LNG has unveiled a new facility in the heart of the Permian Basin, Texas, as demand for its oilfield liquefaction services grows, it said February 2. The new premises will hold operating equipment of both Edge LNG and marketing partner Galileo Technologies and will be home to the first training centre for both companies.
Edge LNG aims to improve gas recovery from wells by liquefying gas that would otherwise be flared, improving the producer's recovery and its environmental footprint. The LNG may be delivered to utilities or used instead of diesel at the well pad.
The facility allows Edge LNG access to all the major road transport links it needs to deliver its LNG to market. The new site will act as a focal point for Edge LNG’s Permian operations, bringing the company closer to its customers. It will allow customers to see equipment first-hand and offer the opportunity to attend training sessions to better understand the company’s unique business model and operations.
Edge LNG said the facility underlines its commitment to the Permian, "where we see so much opportunity and potential to expand our business. Our investment here allows us to provide a cleaner diesel alternative for operators, replace the need for flaring or venting and unlock the potential of stranded wells.”
Edge LNG uses Galileo's Cryobox-Trailer. Each unit can produce about 15 metric tons/day of LNG directly from the well or flare. Galileo Technologies is both an investor and exclusive technology partner to Edge LNG.
