(Enstor) has executed a New Technology Implementation Grant Program Contract with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (“TCEQ”) for the replacement of eight (8) lean burn natural gas engines with remanufactured rich burn natural gas engines that are more efficient and produce lower emissions. This joint effort between Enstor and TCEQ not only benefits the environment in a nonattainment area, but it increases Enstor’s capabilities to serve our customers. This project is funded in part by the State of Texas through a New Technology Implementation Grant Program (NTIG) from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
“NTIG is an innovative and forward-thinking program that is of great benefit to the people of Texas and responsible industry operators like Enstor. The improvements to our injection capabilities along with the other enhancements we have made to our Katy facility and wells will allow Enstor to continue to provide high quality, reliable storage services.” said Enstor Gas, LLC CEO Paul Bieniawski.
The Notice to Proceed from the TCEQ is expected in 1Q2022 with construction commencing thereafter.
