We have actually currently gotten an order for a water treatment system from the City of Denver and have several others in line with other towns.
We are also well underway in carrying out more margin expansion in the 4th quarter of 2019, with an extra $5M of annualized cost savings foreseeable.
On a normalized basis, SG&A is $48.4 M or 13.5% of sales, the lowest given that the fourth quarter of 2012.

Huge LNG export terminal activity continues to be an exciting prospect, and our production work has actually begun on Venture Globals 10 MTPA Calcasieu Pass job for which we received our last and complete notification to proceed in the third quarter of 2019. That task totals $142M of expected profits for us to recognize between now and mid-2021 and contributes to our 22% overall growth forecast in 2020 (15% organic). Additional development toward final financial investment choices (” FID”) was made on other crucial huge LNG order opportunities. Tellurian and Petronet LNG got in into a broadened MOU increasing their investment in the Driftwood job to 5 MTPA, or $2.5 B in equity investment. This brings even more momentum towards FID, which is now predictable in the very first half of 2020. Driftwood and Chenieres Corpus Christi Stage Three have suggested that they will use our IPSMR ® process innovation, for which we recently got our 5th U.S. patent covering liquefaction, heavy hydrocarbon removal and end flash gas cold recovery. In addition, within Q3 2019, two new international oil business formally validated the IPSMR ® procedure for use within their tasks, the conclusion of years of deal with these consumers. We are continuing our margin expansion activities and are driving this as a crucial part of our continuous enhancement culture. Year to date we have executed restructuring actions that will lead to $13.3 M of annualized savings startning in 2020, unrelated to synergies from our acquisition integration efforts.

Furthermore, we have determined another $9M of cost synergies which will be accomplished in addition to the $20M originally determined, also within the very first year.
” Our margin expansion activities from the past 9 months, going beyond prepared synergies from current acquisitions, and our several aspects of development capacity with no heavy reliance on any one single application or end market positions us to provide about $5.00 of projected adjusted incomes per share in 2020, before any extra huge LNG orders,” stated Jill Evanko, Charts President and CEO. “Further, we anticipate $1.0 B of extra big LNG related orders in the second half of 2020 which extends our upcycle for earnings and incomes through 2023.”
