Linde Provides Virtual Natural Gas Pipeline For Asphalt Producers In Remote Locations

Linde LNG specialists will discuss the company's extensive array of LNG services for remote asphalt production at the Rocky Mountain Asphalt Conference and Equipment Show. The conference will be held at the Crown Plaza Airport Conference Center in Denver, Colorado, February 22-24, 2017, booth #70.

"Natural gas is the fuel of choice for most asphalt producers to generate power and heat," said Leslie Waller, Head of Chemistry, Energy and Environmental for Linde Americas. "However, in remote locations where pipeline natural gas is not available, asphalt producers must rely on portable fuel supply. And in these situations, liquefied natural gas (LNG) is often the desirable alternative to propane, diesel, fuel oil #6, and even used motor oil because natural gas burns hotter, has lower emissions and is the lowest cost alternative."

Conference attendees are invited to visit the Linde booth (#70) to meet with Linde LNG supply experts who will detail the company's capabilities and experience in delivering a reliable supply of LNG to serve remote asphalt production facilities, creating a virtual natural gas pipeline.

Linde owns an expanding fleet of temporary, mobile equipment which has been designed, engineered, constructed, and operated to meet the rigors of the asphalt and aggregates industry. Linde engineers are constantly improving this equipment based on their years of field experience and feedback from customers. With varying amounts of storage and vaporization capacities, the Linde LNG fleet is flexible enough to be used in a variety of applications.

"When you work with the Linde LNG team, you receive world-class support in the form of project management, specialized technicians and operators, and safety training," said Evelyn Fairman, Application Sales Engineer. "Our LNG service technicians are highly trained in all applications of natural gas and LNG. We install, start, operate, shut down, and move the LNG equipment safely while ensuring process stability."
