WYALUSING, PA – August 2, 2021 – 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.
Located in the heart of the Marcellus shale gas production region, the Wyalusing, PA, facility broke ground in Spring 2019. In December 2020, ahead of the officially declared in-service, the facility supplied LNG to support the bunkering of a marine vessel at the Port of Hamilton in Ontario, a first on the Great Lakes and a major milestone in the evolution of the regional shipping industry. With a production capacity of 50,000 gallons per a day and approximately 180,000 gallons of on-site storage, Towanda LNG provides affordable and reliable LNG supplies to customers ranging from commercial and industrial users to local gas utilities and power generation facilities.
“Given its location and capabilities, Towanda LNG is truly well-positioned to provide more customers access to the region’s cost-advantaged natural gas supplies. Since the first LNG bunkering at the Port of Hamilton, Towanda LNG has already supplied LNG for several other marine vessel bunkerings,” said Roger Williams, Vice President of Commercial LNG and Gas Development at BHE GT&S. “In addition to LNG supply, Pivotal LNG also offers turn-key solutions including mobile LNG tanks with vaporizers. We’re dedicated to working with our customers to find a solution to their fueling needs. Towanda LNG is a great addition to Pivotal’s already well-established LNG network in the Southeast.”
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.”
