SEAL BEACH, CA - WesPac Midstream LLC ("WesPac") has selected Cosmodyne, LLC ("Cosmodyne") to supply a LINEX natural gas liquefier for a new natural gas liquefaction facility in Jacksonville, Florida. This facility is being constructed to address the growing demand for LNG in the southeast. The LINEX system features Cosmodyne’s safe, environmentally-friendly, and cost-effective nitrogen refrigeration technology to produce high quality LNG fuel. LINEX delivers great operating flexibility, allowing the plant operator to easily increase and decrease production in response to fluctuating market demand while maintaining high efficiency. This unique load-following ability to turn down production without an efficiency penalty is ideal for LNG plants deployed in markets where demand volume is developing or variable.

"WesPac evaluated the available LNG liquefaction technologies and we are pleased with our selection of Cosmodyne," said Peter Gallenberger, Senior Vice President-Engineering and Operations of WesPac. "Cosmodyne demonstrated the unique benefits of their LINEX technology including the simplicity and flexibility of operating the LINEX system. Equally important is Cosmodyne’s commitment and dedication to work with WesPac as a true project partner."

"WesPac asked Cosmodyne for a reliable and cost-effective system that satisfies the unique needs of the new market they will serve providing clean ships with LNG fuel. We are excited to play a role making LNG a viable alternative fuel for ships and look forward to a successful project with WesPac and their customers," said George Pappagelis, General Manager of Cosmodyne, LLC. The equipment will be designed and fabricated in Cosmodyne’s California facilities.

Cosmodyne is participating in the World LNG Fuels Conference as a Gold Sponsor and will be present in booth #407.
