Canada’s Cryopeak launches small LNG production plant in Fort Nelson

Canada-based Cryopeak LNG Solutions has launched a new liquefied natural gas production facility in Fort Nelson, British Columbia.

The first phase of the project includes a capacity of 27,000 LNG gallons per day, but Cryopeak says it could expand the plant’s capacity to about 100,000 gallons per day under its current permit.

Cryopeak, a company of Texas-based private equity firm BP Energy Partners, claims the new facility is the most northern LNG production plant in Canada.

Moreover, the plant would supply LNG to Northern Canadian communities as well as remote mines and other industrial applications for heat and power generation.

The location and efficiency of the new facility when paired with Cryopeak’s B-train transport trailers, capable of hauling 20,000 gallons of LNG, results in the “lowest available cost of supply for off grid communities and industrial customers,” the LNG distributor said.

Worth mentioning here, Cryopeak has last year joined forces with Japan’s Sumitomo Corp to develop an LNG bunkering supply chain in North America’s Pacific Northwest ports.

Under the deal, Sumitomo would offer Cryopeak’s end-to-end LNG fueling solutions to existing and potential customers in Canadian ports. These include Vancouver, Fraser River, Roberts Bank and Prince Rupert.

Cryopeak is developing a 4,000-cbm ATB LNG bunkering barge with plans to launch it in 2023.

The ATB would provide ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore LNG transfers to customers in the North American Pacific Northwest.
