Honeywell UOP To Form Alliance To Serve Growing Demand For Liquefied Natural Gas As A Transportation Fuel And Fuel For Off-Road Applications
UOP LLC, a Honeywell (NYSE: HON) company, announced today that it has formed an alliance with Black & Veatch, a leading global engineering, consulting and construction company, to help natural gas producers and fuel providers meet growing demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a transportation fuel and for off-road, high-horsepower applications.
Through the alliance, the two companies will offer integrated, small-scale LNG plants capable of processing between 50,000 and 500,000 gallons of LNG per day per single processing train, with the capability to extend capacity. LNG can be sold as transportation fuel or used instead of traditional diesel in high-fuel consumption, high-horsepower railroad, marine and mining applications and oil and gas exploration and production.
"LNG use is growing in the North American transportation and high-horse power sectors because of its low cost and environmental benefits, coupled with the rapid introduction of affordable natural gas engine and infrastructure technology," said Rebecca Liebert, senior vice president and general manager for Honeywell
