Linde North America will be highlighting its expanded portfolio of offerings across the LNG supply chain at the High Horsepower (HHP) Summit 2013 to be held at the McCormick Lakeside Center in Chicago, Illinois, September 17-19.

Earl Lawson, vice president, Energy Solutions for Linde North America, said, “For years, Linde has applied its unique cryogenic expertise to develop the LNG supply chain. We’ve done this by building LNG plants at various commercial scales, applying all major refrigeration cycles and using virtually any methane source as well as safely and reliably supplying LNG, equipment and site services to end-use customers.”

At the conference, Linde will discuss how its technology and experience can enhance the value of both producing and using LNG for companies in oil and gas, marine, rail, mining and other high horsepower markets.

At the Linde booth #721, LNG fueling experts will be discussing the broad spectrum of products and services the company has to offer across the LNG supply chain serving the HHP market such as providing equipment, services and LNG for the first ever commercial conversion of an entire hydraulic fracturing fleet fueled by a combination of diesel and economical, clean-burning liquefied natural gas.

“This project, which is still on-going, is proving the feasibility, safety, reliability, cost effectiveness and logistical benefits of using LNG in high horsepower applications,” Lawson said.

“We welcome additional opportunities to overcome the challenges to successfully supply the fuel, storage and vaporization equipment and services that enable companies to use LNG.”

Lawson will be presenting two papers at the conference: 

· LNG Supply: The Unique Perspective of an Operating and Engineering Company,” Plenary Session #3, Wednesday, September 18, at 9.15am.

· LNG for Pressure Pumping: Transforming from Early-Stage to Commercially Sustainable Solutions,” Breakout Session on Pressure Pumping, Wednesday, September 18, at 1.30pm.
