Infocast, the leading conference producer for all things oil and gas, has announced the inaugural LNG Fuel for Engines Summit, scheduled for December 2-3, 2014, in New Orleans, LA. With a focus on natural gas applications for high HP operations in marine, E&P, mining and rail industries, the two-day event brings together end-users, infrastructure developers, fuel suppliers, engine and equipment manufacturers (OEMS), government agencies and investors to make the critical connections needed to power ahead the competition.
With the U.S. natural gas revolution going through a period of immense growth with enough to supply the next 100 years at current demand levels, growing usage of natural gas as a transportation fuel has provided a cost-effective alternative to conventional fuels leading to major economic and environmental benefits to end users within the marine, E&P, mining and rail sectors. As fuel increasingly become the largest operating cost and the price of diesel in the U.S. growing on average of 12% per year, the need to shift to natural gas as fuel has never been greater. Stringent U.S. regulations are forcing operators in the marine, E&P, mining and rail sectors to rethink fuelling options, particularly in the marine sector where ship owners must drastically cut the amount of allowable NOx and SOx emissions, taking effect world-wide next year.
However, with these opportunities come major industry complexities faced by end-users across the United States. Obstacles in building new infrastructure to fuel applications, uncertainty with the availability and reliability of LNG, an absent industry supply chain and overall concern with operational implications in using natural gas including safety, training, storage and maintenance.
To address these challenges, Infocast has produced the LNG Fuel for Engines Summit to bring together end-users – from the marine, E&P, mining and rail industries – fuel suppliers, LNG plant developers, engine and equipment manufacturers, government agencies and investors to network and collaborate across established industry boundaries and take advantage of the opportunities that exist in advancing the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel. This must-attend event is where key players will take advantage of the exceptional opportunity toward building unparalleled value chain relationships as the global revolution takes place for natural gas powered transportation.
