(Los Angeles - October 23, 2013) San Dimas, Calif.-based OnQuest, Inc. has been awarded a contract by joint venture partners Stabilis Energy LLC and Flint Hills Resources LLC (FHR) to provide a turnkey scope of engineering services and project management for a 100,000-gallon-per-day natural gas liquefaction and distribution facility in George West, Texas, that will address demand for a reliable and safe supply of high-horsepower fuel to oilfields in Texas's Eagle Ford Shale.
OnQuest will provide a fully functioning LNG facility with scope that includes project execution, engineering, construction, buildings, power and utilities. OnQuest's sister company James Construction Group is contracted with OnQuest to construct the plant. Work begins immediately.
"OnQuest, James Construction Group, and our parent company Primoris Services Corporation are extremely pleased to have won the competition for the work at George West," said OnQuest president Randolph R. "Randy" Kessler.
"We're encouraged that the market for providing turnkey engineering, procurement and construction project supervision on micro-LNG process plants continues to grow," said Kessler. "This win reflects Stabilis and FHR's confidence in OnQuest's ability to deliver LNG facility projects profitably and on schedule."
Stabilis Energy LLC is a Beaumont, Tex.-based holding company focused on investments in developing liquefied natural gas (LNG) in North America. Flint Hills Resources LLC (FHR) is a leading refining, chemical and biofuels company. Chart Industries will provide cryogenic and liquefaction equipment for the project.
"OnQuest shares Stabilis Energy and Flint Hills Resources' commitment to expediting a cost-effective solution for operations in the Eagle Ford basin," added Kessler. "And we look forward to working as engineering partners with technology provider Chart Industries."
OnQuest specializes in lump-sum, turnkey engineering, procurement and construction project management (EPC). In 2008, OnQuest and sister company ARB, Inc., completed a micro-LNG plant producing 160,000 GPD LNG in Boron, Calif., for Clean Energy Fuels Corporation.
