14,000 sq ft LNG facility opens in Texas

Oilfield service company, Green Energy Oilfield Services, LLC, has opened a 14,000 sq ft liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in Texas.

Green Energy is one of the first providers in the industry to provide fluid management services, including fluid transportation, storage, and disposal through the utilisation of LNG powered trucks.

The technology can offer significant cost savings – approximately USD 2 per gallon – over traditional diesel powered trucks, said Green Energy.

The company has also entered into a first-call agreement with XTO Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Exxon Mobile. XTO manages more than 3,500 gas wells spread over 290,000 acres in the Freestone Trend area in Central North East Texas. The Freestone Trend generates more than 50,000 bbls of salt water per day.

"We are excited to partner with Texas-based companies in building our LNG-powered vehicles," said Roger Nevill, president & chief operating officer for Green Energy Oilfield Services. "In utilsing LNG, a cleaner alternative fuel, we drastically reduce emissions and help decrease dependency on foreign energy products."

Green Energy worked with Irving-based Rush Peterbilt Truck Centers and Denton-based Peterbilt developed the fleet of 60 LNG-powered vehicles.

The Green Energy facility has created 150 local jobs and will generate in excess of USD 24 million in annual revenue in 2012, according to the company.
