Pivotal LNG’s newest liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility, Towanda LNG, marks the company’s first expansion into the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic market. Entering service in January 2021, Towanda LNG has already produced more than one million gallons of LNG and has supported a wide range of customers across Pennsylvania and the broader region.
Even before its official start-up, LNG from the plant was used for the landmark December 10, 2020, bunkering of the M/V Damia Desgagnés in the Port of Hamilton, Ontario, by REV LNG, a first on the Great Lakes.
Located in the heart of the Marcellus shale gas production region, in Wyalusing, Pa., Towanda LNG has a production capacity of 50,000 gallons per a day and approximately 180,000 gallons of on-site storage.
With this latest expansion, Pivotal LNG is now able to offer customized solutions to customers utilizing LNG from three facilities along the eastern United States: the Trussville LNG facility in Alabama, the JAX LNG facility in Florida, and the Towanda LNG facility in Pennsylvania. The three plants have a combined storage capacity of approximately 7 million gallons and 230,000 gallons per day of liquefaction capacity, which is further backed by a portfolio of additional LNG supply points, a fleet of LNG tankers and decades of operational experience. With a lower carbon footprint than most petroleum fuels, Pivotal LNG is supporting companies working to reduce carbon emissions while also reducing their energy costs.
REV LNG, with its extensive history of supplying LNG and virtual pipeline services in the Northeastern United States, is supporting the transportation and marketing services for the Towanda LNG facility. “The REV team is proud to team up with BHE GT&S and Pivotal LNG in bringing the Towanda LNG facility to market,” said David Kailbourne, CEO of REV. “With the proximity of the facility to the growing Northeast and Mid-Atlantic markets, we look forward to providing new customers access to a lower cost and cleaner fuel supply.”
