Cryopeak is a distributor of LNG in Canada and currently has a fleet of 16 tanks operating in Canada, as well as equipment and technologies for storage, regasification and fuel dispensing Cryopeak is a distributor of LNG in Canada. (Credit: PRNewsfoto/Cryopeak LNG Solutions Corporat.) Cryopeak LNG Solutions Corporation, based in Richmond BC, has completed the largest ever 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”), where natural gas is the primary fuel to support this northern community. The delivery is in line with the continued focus of NTPC to make low carbon electricity available across NWT. Moreover, it extends the longstanding relationship between Cryopeak and NTPC, where Cryopeak has delivered LNG reliably to Inuvik for 3 years.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 primarily 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 their customers reduce carbon footprint, lower energy costs and maximize operational efficiencies.“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.The Super B-Train is designed with up to 70 percent greater load capacity than standard trailers operating in Canada today, improving LNG’s competitiveness as a fuel source for remote mining locations and communities. Understanding that transportation often represents the largest cost of LNG for customers, NTPC was eager to work with Cryopeak on this initiative.“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. 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,” says Katrina Nokleby, Minister of Infrastructure and Industry, Tourism and Investment.“We are incredibly proud of this achievement. It is the culmination of years of planning to deliver LNG in our Super B-Train to a community located 200 km north of the Arctic Circle and approximately 100 km from the Arctic Ocean. It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone in our Cryopeak team as well as the continued support and shared vision of our financial sponsor, BP Energy Partners,” said Aleksandar (Saša) Cook, SVP of Cryopeak.

The three parties will jointly explore and evaluate LNG procurement strategies and the energy transition to hydrogen in the longer-term Keppel Data Centres, City Gas, City-OG Gas Energy Services sign MOU. (Credit: Keppel Data Centres Pte Ltd) Keppel Data Centres Holding (Keppel DC), City Gas and City-OG Gas Energy Services (City-OG) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to explore using Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and hydrogen to power Keppel DC’s Floating Data Centre Park (FDCP) in Singapore, which is currently in its exploration phase.[i] [ii]Under the MOU, the three parties will jointly explore and evaluate LNG procurement strategies and the energy transition to hydrogen in the longer-term. The parties will also deliberate on cold energy harnessing for the FDCP and share expertise on steam methane reforming. In line with Keppel’s Vision 2030, which places sustainability at the heart of its strategy, this collaboration is part of a Groupwide effort to study ways to create more energy efficient and greener data centres solutions so that the burgeoning needs of the digital economy can be met in a safe, reliable and environmentally friendly manner.Mr Wong Wai Meng, Chief Executive Officer, Keppel DC, said, “We are pleased to tap the expertise of the Keppel eco-system of companies – City Gas and City-OG. As industry leaders in technologies, such as the tri-generation LNG and steam methane reforming, our partners will provide insights which will enhance the design and envisaged operations at the FDCP to achieve optimal energy efficiency and reduction in carbon emissions.“The collaboration between Keppel DC, City Gas and City-OG broadens the efforts of the Keppel Group in reducing the carbon footprint of data centre operations. We are harnessing synergies across the Group to explore the development of the FDCP, LNG and hydrogen-powered data centres, as well as technologies such as carbon capture, utilisation and sequestration.”Mr Perry Ong, Chief Executive Officer, City Gas, said, “We are pleased to work with Keppel DC to support their FDCP project exploration. Leveraging our expertise in a comprehensive range of safe, reliable and clean gas solutions, City Gas is constantly exploring ways to further lower carbon emissions. We are already using natural gas in the town gas manufacturing process with a longer-term view of using hydrogen to further minimise environmental impact. We are thus eager to expand our green efforts in the data centre sector with this MOU.”“With our expertise in gas solutions and tri-generation, we are excited to be part of this collaboration, which will allow us to understand better how our know-how can be applied to the growing data centre industry. We look forward to further boost Keppel DC’s green initiatives at its FDCP.” said Mr Gio Lee, Chief Executive Officer, City-OG Gas Energy Services. Source: Company Press Release
