Cryopeak LNG Solutions Corporation has broken ground on a new LNG production facility in Fort Nelson, British Columbia.

The facility will be the first fully funded permitted LNG production facility in the Fort Nelson area and will be capable of producing up to 90,000 gallons of LNG per day.

Cryopeak has selected CryoSys for the liquefaction equipment to produce the LNG. The equipment will be delivered to Cryopeak in early summer.

“We are excited to now have permits in hand and shovels in the ground,” said Calum McClure, CEO of Cryopeak.

The production facility will be the closest LNG production point to northern Canada and portions of Alaska.

A key feature of the plant design incorporates a new truck loading system that optimises loading of Cryopeak’s fleet of LNG Super-B tankers.

“We are delighted to have been awarded this contract to deliver the liquefaction package to Cryopeak’s LNG facility in Northern BC,” said Neil Karr, President of CryoSys.

“Our highly efficient optimised mixed refrigerant process and our ability to package the modular liquefaction plant in our workshop allows us to provide the lowest installation and operation costs for a small-scale LNG plant in the LNG marketplace.”
