Linde will introduce its new LNG fueling station and will highlight its comprehensive solutions for upstream oil and gas operation that create cost savings and productivity gains at the DUG East Conference and Exposition.

DUG East is one of a conference series produced by Hart Energy that is focused on developing unconventional oil and gas resources. The 2013 conference will be held in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from Wednesday 13th of November 13 to Friday November 15th. Linde will be in booth #267.

Linde representatives will discuss how Linde fuels drilling rigs and fracking spreads throughout North America with liquefied natural gas (LNG). The company also offers alternatives to slickwater completions with the industry’s largest network of carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen (N2) plants.

Brian Kubalik, national sales manager, said, “With off-road capable equipment and dedicated service-minded personnel even the demanding terrain of Appalachia cannot keep us from meeting the customer’s fracking date. We will also help our customers save costs of fueling high horsepower equipment and maximise the long-term performance of their wells.”

Linde has also developed technology that involve fluids energised with carbon dioxide (CO2) or nitrogen (N2) to reduce water volume for more economical hydraulic fracturing. “In certain situations, the increased productivity achieved with energised solutions can lower overall unit cost of production,” said Kubalik.

Linde will be introducing its new LNG fueling station that offers important advantages compared with competitive LNG stations. “The new, permanent commercial stations are economical and scalable as fleet needs expand, and offer exceptional performance,” said Bryan Luftglass, head of strategic market and business development for LNG.

Linde has commissioned the first stations incorporating these design elements in the United Kingdom and Australia, and is building its first station in North America. “Linde also supplies mobile fueling equipment; together with the new station, we can help truck fleets supplying sand, cement and water services economically convert their fleets over to LNG, whatever their level of fuel usage,” Luftglass said.
