Edge Gathering Virtual Pipelines 2 LLC (Edge LNG) unveiled a new facility on Feb. 2 to serve the Permian Basin. The company is a pioneer in delivering low-cost, high quality LNG to market by converting stranded and flared natural gas.
Located in Midland, Texas, the new facility helps meet the growing demand for Edge LNG’s services. The new premises will hold operating equipment of both Edge LNG and Galileo Technologies, it’s exclusive technology partner, and will be home to the first training center for both companies.
The 10,000-sq-ft facility allows Edge LNG access to all major transport links, which is vital in the transportation of LNG through its virtual pipeline. The new site will act as a focal point for the company’s Permian operations, bringing the firm closer to its customers. The facility will allow customers to see equipment first-hand and offer the opportunity to attend training sessions to better understand the company’s unique business model and operations.
“This is an exciting time for the LNG market and after a challenging year we are seeing growth in the Permian,” said Jonathan Brignac, vice president of business development at Edge LNG. “Not only does the opening of our facility underline our commitment to our customers, it highlights our commitment to the Permian, where we see so much opportunity and potential to expand our business. Our investment here allows us to provide a cleaner diesel alternative for operators, replace the need for flaring or venting and unlock the potential of stranded wells.”
Edge LNG is made possible by the Cryobox-Trailer, designed and manufactured by Galileo Technologies. Each unit can produce approximately 10,000 gallons (15 metric tons) of LNG per day, directly from the well or flare. Galileo Technologies is both an investor and exclusive technology partner to Edge LNG.
Founded in 2018, Edge LNG turns stranded gas into revenue. Whatever the source – gas trapped in stranded and orphaned wells or vented or flared as a by-product from oil production – Edge LNG produces and distributes the lowest-cost LNG on the market. Edge LNG unlocks the latent potential of gas without the need for pipelines or fixed infrastructure, while also offering environmental benefits to responsible asset owners by replacing the need for flaring or venting.
Edge LNG uses proven Cryobox technology, a mobile liquefaction unit delivered by trailer. Each Cryobox unit can begin production within hours and can convert 1 million BTU of gas per day resulting in up to approximately 10,000 gallons of LNG per day, which is then distributed anywhere it is needed via Edge LNG’s virtual pipeline. Anywhere a truck can go, Edge LNG can go.
