xperion will deliver X-STORE® natural gas modules to Pakistan
Hexagon Composites’ newly acquired subsidiary, xperion Energy & Environment, has received an order for X-STORE® gas container modules from EGAS Pvt. Ltd, gas distributor in Pakistan, with a total estimated value of EUR 2.6 million (around NOK 21 million). The X-STORE® 48-foot modules are scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2017. The modules are used to supply the captured CNG to industrial users with stable energy demand, such as hotels, fueling stations and the textile industry.
While natural gas is a limited resource in Pakistan, piped gas to CNG stations and industries are being closed down during the winter season in order to dedicate this fuel to power plants for electricity generation. EGAS is seeing increased demand for Mobile Pipeline® CNG solutions for industrial customers in areas not served by pipelines. Since 2013, it has operated several X-STORE® modules serving oil wells for capturing and compressing flare gas. In 2016 EGAS bought TITAN® modules from Hexagon Composites’ US-based subsidiary Hexagon Lincoln.
“As EGAS continues its expansion, we are proud to remain as their partner,” said Hartmut Fehrenbach, Business Unit Director of Mobile Pipeline® at xperion Energy & Environment. “Lower CNG prices paired with higher transport efficiency improve the competitiveness of Mobile Pipeline® operators and favor our all-composite mobile solutions.”
“Both X-STORE® and TITAN® gas modules have proven to be very suitable solutions in our endeavor to support the authorities’ ambition of securing Pakistan’s natural gas supply,” said Hassan Raza, Executive Director at EGAS. “Hexagon Composite is a reliable partner and we expect more cooperation as we continue to expand our business.”
