Cryopeak LNG Solutions Corp. completes delivery of liquefied natural gas to Northwest Territories
The shipment of LNG totaled approximately 18,000 gallons
RICHMOND, B.C. — Cryopeak LNG Solutions Corporation, based in Richmond BC, has completed the delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG) by truck in the Northwest Territories (NWT), with the shipment being delivered to a power generation facility in Inuvik.
The facility is owned by Northwest Territories Power Corporation (NTPC). The delivery is in line with the focus to make low carbon electricity available across NWT.
“It was an incredible journey, both manning the truck, and seeing how far Cryopeak has come in the ability to deliver clean, affordable and reliable natural gas to serve the region,” said Blair Mease, who drove the B-Train the 3729 kilometers from point of loading to delivery, in a prepared statement.
The shipment of LNG totaled approximately 18,000 gallons and was made possible by Cryopeak’s proprietary “Super B-Train” transportation trailer. Cryopeak’s mission is to provide LNG to remote locations in the most reliable, sustainable and economic manner possible. The Super B-Train and Cryopeak’s LNG production facility in Fort Nelson, BC, are critical pieces towards realizing this mission.
Cryopeak focuses its fuel delivery efforts on the mining and industrial heating industries, as well as in support of power generation in remote communities through commercial partnerships that help reduce carbon footprint, lower energy costs and maximize operational efficiencies.
“The Government of the Northwest Territories is committed to finding ways to reduce the cost of living for its residents, and we continue to collaborate with the Northwest Territories Power Corporation to look for innovative solutions to do just that,” said Katrina Nokleby, minister of infrastructure and industry, tourism and investment. “This delivery — the largest delivery of liquefied natural gas this far north in Canada — marks an important step toward making lower carbon electricity available across the NWT.”
