WE MAKE LNG SIMPLE
Kinetrex is the only Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) company in the Midwest. If you are currently using diesel fuel, propane, waste oil or coal, we’ll help you switch to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), which will reduce and stabilize your energy costs along with reducing emissions.
LNG is used for marine satellite storage, filling stations and on-board fueling systems. Below deck or above deck tanks, vaporizers, cold boxes, pipeline can be utilized. Current EPA exhaust emission standards for marine diesel engines is driving natural gas-powered adoption. The experience and success in Europe is being transferred globally with broad blue water adoption. Tote and Carnival Cruise ships are early adopters of LNG in the U.S.

24,000 locomotives consume approximately 4 billion gallons of diesel per year. Over 20 years ago, Chart pioneered LNG solutions to provide natural gas to fuel long haul locomotives and yard switch engines. Alaska Rail hauled its first LNG cargo in September 2016 and major rail companies are reinitiating field trials. The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is in process of approving transport of LNG and LNG tender car regulations.

Customers that operate rural asphalt plants that run on diesel or waste oil and cannot connect to a natural gas pipeline, have the choice to switch to LNG. With LNG, you can get natural gas delivered to your plants wherever they may be, on a pipeline or not. Kinetrex provides lease-to-own LNG equipment to displace asphalt plants running on high NOx emission waste oil and expensive diesel. Waste oil is harmful to the environment, dangerous, and wears down equipment at a rapid pace. LNG allows for emissions compliance, safety, and drastically reduces operating expenses due to the clean, even burn of natural gas.

EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION
Typical drilling rig fuel usage can range anywhere between 10,000 to 30,000 diesel gallons per day. With this kind of usage, rig operators need reliable and economical fuel supply. LNG can provide significant cost savings over unstable diesel prices. Whether you’re looking for a primary pipeline supply or a mobile unit for temporary backup Kinetrex has your rig covered.
