Chart Industries, Inc. announced today Noble Energy Inc. has awarded Chart’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Chart Energy & Chemicals, a contract to provide a processing facility to produce approximately 100,000 gallons of liquefied natural gas per day.

The facility will be fully integrated with a new gas processing plant to be located in northern Weld County, Colorado. The plant, which is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2014, will service Noble Energy’s northern Colorado operations in the DJ Basin.

Chart E&C’s range of standard LNG plants are complete package solutions for the liquefaction of natural gas and feature Chart E&C’s proprietary liquefaction technology. Key equipment packages, comprised of brazed aluminum heat exchangers, cold boxes, storage tanks and load-out facilities, are designed in-house, and manufactured and fabricated in Chart’s facilities. These standard plants allow for a fast-track schedule and earlier commencement of LNG production. The C100N plant selected by Noble Energy will provide a robust, flexible LNG plant using a wide range of feed gas compositions.

“We are delighted that a world-class company like Noble Energy has selected our plant solution. We share a commitment to delivering a cost-efficient, safe alternative to diesel and other distillate fuels,” commented Mike Durkin, President of Chart E&C.
