PORT ALLEN - NuBlu Energy has started construction on a natural gas liquefaction plant in Port Allen.

The facility will have a startup capacity of 30,000 gallons per day, expandable to 90,000 gallons. The company announced Thursday it also will have storage capacity of 100,000 gallons. NuBlu didn't disclose its investment cost, but says it will employ up to 10 people.

The Advocate reports the plant is located along the Mississippi River off La. 1 north near the U.S. Railway Terminal. The Center, Texas-based company says it hopes to jump-start the inland marine LNG market by having a supply so close to the river. It also will serve rail, long-haul transportation, power generation, gas interruption, asphalt and other energy markets.

The plant, NuBlu's first commercial facility, is expected to start operations during 2017's second-quarter.
