Thigpen Energy’s LNG Equipment Fleet – Portable Fueling Solutions

Thigpen Energy owns and operates a mobile LNG equipment fleet tailored to suit any sized customer–from municipal gas systems to large industrial plants. This article details Thigpen Energy LNG equipment fleet units that are regularly used to provide portable fueling solutions whenever an outage occurs on a natural gas pipeline that affects your customers. 

LNG Tankers

Featured below are Thigpen’s LNG Transport, Queen Storage, and Regas fuel tankers. These tankers are designed to transport and hold fuel onsite (up to 1,100 MCF in a single tanker), and build internal pressure once on-site to delivery pressures of up to 115 psi directly to the system or individual customer.

Vaporization Equipment

The various types of vaporization equipment are designed to turn the liquefied natural gas back into its vapor state at various flow rates required by the pipeline operator or customer. Pictured below, with specs, are the Ambient, Forced Air, Gas Fired, and MVS High Pressure vaporizers.

Thigpen-Energy-Ambient-Air-Vaporizer-LNG-Equipment-FleetLNG Ambient Air Vaporizer

The ambient air vaporizer is a dual vaporizer unit that operates on 8 hour duty cycles, allowing for 24/7 operations. Liquid Natural Gas enters the vaporizer at up to 115 psig, and immediately returns to its gaseous state. Natural gas is then delivered to the pipeline at up to 20,000 SCFH, at a target temperature of 70 degrees (F), and at pressures up to 115 psig.

Thigpen-Energy-Ambient-Forced-Air-Vaporizer-LNG-Equipment-FleetLNG Ambient Forced Air Vaporizer

The ambient forced air vaporizer is a dual vaporizer unit that operates on 8 hour duty cycles, allowing for 24/7 operations. Liquid Natural Gas enters the vaporizer at up to 115 psig, and immediately returns to its gaseous state. Natural gas is then delivered to the pipeline at up to 150,000 SCFH, at a target temperature of 70 degrees (F), and at pressures up to 115 psig.

Thigpen-Energy-Gas-Fired-Vaporizer-LNG-Equipment-FleetLNG Gas Fired Vaporizer

The Gas Fired vaporizer is a single unit that operates continuously (no duty cycle), allowing for 24/7 operations. Liquid Natural Gas enters the vaporizer at up to 115 psig, and immediately returns to its gaseous state. This unit utilizes a gas red/glycol water boiler to rapidly and efficiently vaporize LNG. Natural gas is then delivered to the pipeline at up to 675,000 SCFH, at a target temperature of 70 degrees (F), and at pressures up to 115 psig.

Thigpen-Energy-MVS-LNG-Pump-Skid-VaporizerMVS LNG Pump Skid Vaporizer

The MVS LNG pump skid is designed to be utilized during high pressure LNG applications. This vaporizer is able to achieve up to 150,000 SCFH at delivery pressures up to 450psi. This allows Thigpen to store large amounts of LNG on-site with minimal equipment, and achieve high working pressures, where traditionally only CNG would be suitable. With this virtual pipeline setup, Thigpen is able to reduce the site footprint, reduce transportation costs associated with “drap and swap” CNG refueling setups, and increase safety awareness and total project costs via less moving parts over the road and on the job site itself.

Fuel Supply Network

Thigpen Energy is capable of supplying LNG from a nationwide network of LNG liquefaction facilities, through various LNG fuel supply network agreements that are in place today. This supply network allows us to ensure our customers that Thigpen can provide an ample supply of LNG, when and where they need it.

Thigpen continues to work with an expanding list of LNG producers, by securing supply agreements to feasibly and economically source LNG fuel for our customers. With one of the largest LNG and CNG virtual pipeline fleets in the country, Thigpen Energy has the equipment tailored for any solution! To download our LNG Fleet Information Sheet, click HERE.
