STUDY SHOWS BENEFIT OF LNG USE IN HIGH-HORSEPOWER APPLICATIONS
On Monday, Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead unveiled a study titled “Wyoming LNG Roadmap Report” showing that Wyoming is well positioned to develop an LNG industry for high- horsepower uses. The report, which was produced by Gladstein, Neandross & Associates, looks at how LNG can supplement diesel in mining, rail, drilling, pressure pumping and over- the-road trucking industries. “The private sector will ultimately make investments in LNG technologies based on market conditions, and this report can be a catalyst,” said Gov. Mead. “We now have some concrete ideas for how we can make our abundant natural gas be even more valuable to our economy.” Among other things, the report analyzes the amount of diesel used in Wyoming’s high-horsepower industries and inventories the engines currently in use in those industries. It shows that the Powder River Basin is the “heart of the market” for LNG. The report was paid for by the State of Wyoming and several private partners. The report can be accessed by clicking here.
