Natural Gas Facility to Open in Tioga

Posted: Updated:
North Dakota's first Liquefied natural gas processing facility is taking root in Tioga.
The facility will convert natural gas into liquid fuels that can be used in the oil field.
When completed the plant will have the capacity to process 76-thousand gallons of LNG per day.
The alternative fuel can be used on the rigs, commercial trucks, tractors and other vehicles.

(Pat Hughes / CEO NDLNG) "LNG is where you take methane and you take it down to negative 260 degrees Fahrenheit where it condenses into a liquid fuel. And that is the fuel that we have chosen to focus on and bring to the businesses of North Dakota."

The plant will begin processing 10-thousand gallons per day this summer.
The second phase will start in early 2015 to increase the total production to more than 76-thousand gallons per day.
