BEAUMONT, TX–(Marketwired – March 03, 2015) – Stabilis Energy announces the grand opening of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) production facility in George West, Texas.

“Stabilis is proud to announce the opening of our George West LNG liquefaction facility for commercial production,” said Casey Crenshaw, CEO of Stabilis Energy. “We offer a reliable source of LNG fuel for customers in the Eagle Ford shale and throughout Texas.

In addition to producing LNG fuel, Stabilis provides turnkey LNG fueling services including transportation and logistics, cryogenic equipment rental, and field service support. “Stabilis makes it easy for high horsepower engine operators to use LNG fuel,” said Steve Stump, Vice President of Sales at Stabilis Energy. “Helping our customers simplify and optimize their LNG fueling programs is a critical part of our value proposition.”
The Stabilis George West facility is a dedicated LNG production facility that is open for business 24 hours per day and 365 days per year. LNG fuel can be sold either wholesale at the plant tailgate or retail through Stabilis’ delivery service.
