Great River Industry’s employees transport one of three 132 thousand gallon liquid natural gas (LNG) storage tanks down L. E. Barry Road to be loaded on a barge and taken down the river to Great River’s customers. The company expects this to be the first wave in several of these type of LNG storage tanks being shipped around the country because of the current boom in the LNG industry. Each 127 foot long tank weighs 250 thousand pounds. Great River is also in the process of fabricating four tanks additional LNG tanks that are twice the size of these tanks. They weigh 500 thousand pounds each and store 260 thousand gallons of liquid natural gas.   (Sam Gause / The Natchez Democrat)
