Natural Gas and LNG Solutions and Products 2017-11-13T17:32:00+00:00

Patented Products and Trusted Solutions: Natural Gas Engineering, Design and Build Services since 1996.

Northstar offers its many gas industry clients a variety of products, services and solutions and is one of only a handful of U.S. companies that has designed and built complete LNG facilities.

We pre-fabricate natural gas facilities, LNG facilities and packaged systems of any size for any gas need; standardized or customized, and including skids, buildings, yard piping, headers, etc. The buildings and skids are fabricated, assembled, painted, electrically outfitted and tested right here at Northstar’s facility. The components are then prepped for shipping and transported to the project site where Northstar installs and commissions.  Building and testing at Northstar, as opposed to fabrication and assembly in the field, allows for the maintaining of tight schedules, removes the impact of tough or unknown weather conditions, and saves on construction and other field related costs.  We also offer CNG siting, permitting, design and build services.

Northstar currently holds the following patents:

US Patent 6,176,046: Portable Pre-Manufactured Modular Natural Gas Delivery Stations

US Patent 6,176,046 is for Northstar’s manufactured, modular natural gas metering and regulating facility for pipeline interconnects, city gate stations, gas storage, or industrial supply off of a high pressure pipeline. The pre-fabricated, modular facility provides standardized, repeatable designs, which simplifies the construction of new interconnects. The design is also used for equipment and control buildings at an LNG or Propane Plant.

Modules include: Filtering, Measurement, In-line Heating, Pressure &, Flow Control, Odorization, and SCADA. Each module can be used independently or in combination.

U.S. Patent 6,474,101: High Pressure Natural Gas From LNG Without Pumps or Compressors

US Patent # 6,474,101 is for a modular design that provides clean and accessible fuel for remote compressed gas. The natural gas handling system has a liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage unit that converts the LNG to compressed natural gas without the use of pumps or compressors. There are twenty (20) separate claims in this patent.

  • Metering and Regulating Buildings
  • Metering and Regulating Skids
  • LNG Process Skids
  • Main Line Odorization Buildings
  • MLV Control Buildings
  • EGM & Gas Quality Buildings

LNG

Among Northstar’s pedigree is the first LNG facility sited, designed, permitted and built in Massachusetts since the 1970’s: Berkshire Gas’ LNG Facility in Whately, MA. Our experienced staff of mechanical and process engineers are ex-LNG plant operators staffedd with major LNG equipment suppliers.

Northstar will design and build LNG facilities as a general contractor for client ownership, or will design, build, own and operate for the industry.  If you have questions regarding LNG supply, economics, equipment, uses or any other indusrty questions, please click the “contact” tab and fill out an inquiry form or call 978-975-5500 x328.

Pipeline Surface Facilities

Northstar pre-fabricates natural gas facilities and then transports them to project locations all over the U.S. Facilities include: skids, buildings, yard piping, headers, etc. The buildings and skids are fabricated, assembled, painted, electrically outfitted and tested at Northstar’s facility. The components are then prepped for shipping and transported to the project site where Northstar installs and commissions.

Pre-building and testing at Northstar, as opposed to fabrication and assembly in the field, allows for the maintaining of tight schedules, removes the impact of tough or unknown weather conditions, and saves on construction and other field related costs.

Products & Services:

  • Measurement, Flow Control, Pre-heat & Pressure Regulation Stations
  • Main Line Odorization Buildings
  • MLV Control Buildings
  • EGM & Gas Quality Buildings

CNG

The use of compressed natural gas (CNG) is expanding. Shale gas has created an enormous financial spread between the cost of natural gas and hydrocarbon based fuels. It is now economically viable to utilize high capacity CNG trailers to transport natural gas to areas unreached by pipeline supply. Areas that do not have access or not reachable by pipeline can gain economic and environmental benefits of natural gas.

Products & Services:

Northstar is pleased to offer the growing CNG sector with siting, permitting, design and build services for:

  • CNG Source Sites
    • Compression & Truck Loading
  • CNG Customer Sites
    • Truck Offloading, Preheating, Metering and Decompression
