REV LNG, SJI to build US RNG facility

US liquefied natural gas supplier REV LNG is teaming up with compatriot energy services firm SJI to build a renewable natural gas (RNG) facility in Connecticut.

According to a joint statement, the partners plan to construct a 2MM gallon anaerobic digester at Oakridge Dairy, Connecticut’s largest dairy farm.

This $12 million RNG facility would enable Elizabethtown natural gas customers to utilize renewable energy, they said.

Expected to be operational by September 2022, the anaerobic digester will capture raw methane and other greenhouse gases produced by manure.

The project will also include constructing additional equipment to transform the collected biogas into commercial-grade, pipeline-quality renewable natural gas.

This gas would go into the distribution system of SJI’s subsidiary, Elizabethtown Gas.

Also, the project will help to strengthen Oakridge Dairy’s own sustainability efforts.

With the addition of the anaerobic digester on sight, Oakridge Dairy would help produce close to 60,000 dekatherms of RNG per year, which is enough to offset the environmental impact of 867 passenger vehicle cars, the statement said.

Furthermore, the Oakridge Dairy project will be the first in a portfolio of dairy farms to break ground through SJI’s continued partnership with REV LNG.

In addition to Oakridge Dairy, SJI and partner, REV LNG plan to build similar RNG-producing plants over the coming year.

REV LNG, along with partner Pivotal LNG, operates the Towanda liquefaction and storage facility, located in Pennsylvania.

Towanda produces about 50,000 gallons of LNG per day and has 180,000 gallons of storage.

REV has in December trucked LNG from Towanda to Canada’s Hamilton Port for the first-ever LNG bunkering operation in the Great Lakes region.
