Kinetrex Energy has installed a new $4 million cold box at its liquefied natural gas plant on the northwest side of Indianapolis, which the company says will expand the plant’s production capacity by 30 percent. The newly-installed Air Liquide cold box is expected to go on-line this month.
“We are in the process of modernizing and increasing production of the LNG North plant, which was originally built in 1991,” said Kinetrex President and Chief Executive Officer Aaron Johnson. “LNG North plays an important role not only for Kinetrex but also for the City of Indianapolis insofar as it has the ability to vaporize up to 180,000,000 cubic feet of natural gas per day into the Citizens Gas distribution system if called upon by the utility.”
The company also operates a LNG plant on the south side of Indianapolis.The Kinetrex LNG plants offer 2 billion cubic feet of storage capacity to help fuel companies all over the Midwest. Click here to learn more.
