CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SPATCO Energy Solutions, North America's largest distributor for Galileo USA, today announced installation completion and two months of successful operation of the first North American Galileo Cryobox® Nano Station for Terra Energy Group in North Dakota. This new Cryobox unit, which is a micro-scale natural gas liquefier, in its first month of operation helped prevent the flaring of millions of standard cubic feet of natural gas.
"From assembly and installation, to start-up, training and service, we're proud to have the opportunity to work with Galileo and Terra Energy Group to bring this smart, adaptable LNG production solution to North Dakota, to help deliver fuel savings and meet flare reduction requirements," said Jeff Dailey, president and CEO of SPATCO Energy Solutions. "The Galileo Cryobox is an economic, transportable and scalable option that is capable of converting gas that is being flared into fuel used in oil & gas field operations."
"In SPATCO Energy Solutions, we found a committed and resourceful partner who could work with us, even in adverse winter conditions, through the start-up of this new technology," said Dustin Hancock, president of Terra Energy Group. "In less than four work weeks from the completion of our site preparation activities, with SPATCO's assistance, we were able to assemble the equipment, train our employees and engage a service network that will provide routine field maintenance and service, and begin the production of LNG. Today, we're consistently producing 7,800 to 8,500 LNG gallons per day based on production output from the wells."
Terra Energy group commissioned the Cryobox liquefier to help its customers reduce both natural gas flaring and their overall fuel spend by capturing their natural gas at the well-pad, liquefying the gas on-site, and transporting the gas to other points of their operations where the gas can then be put to use as a fuel for powering drilling rigs, water heating, and other power generation needs.
