Xpress Natural Gas, a full-service CNG and LNG provider with operations throughout the US and eastern Canada, has announced the hiring of two key executives into leadership roles.
Vince Morrissette has joined the XNG management team as Executive Vice President of Wholesale Business Development. Vince has over 25 years of experience in the energy industry in a variety of roles including energy infrastructure development, natural gas sales/marketing, asset management, financial planning/analysis, regulatory affairs, and engineering. Prior to joining XNG, Vince held leadership positions at Repsol Energy North America, CenterPoint Energy, Iroquois Gas Transmission, and El Paso Corp associated primarily with energy infrastructure development (pipelines, power generation, and LNG facilities). He has been actively involved in the Northeast US gas market for most of his career, with strong focus on wholesale market development, infrastructure development, and regulatory affairs in the region.
Gary Ritter has joined XNG as Vice President, Sales and Business Development focusing on Gas Utilities. Gary comes from Tenaska, where he was responsible for commercial and operational relationships with LDC customers across New England and the Mid-Atlantic states. His experience includes gas marketing, asset management, and acting as agent for northeast gas utility and power generation customers. Prior to that, Gary was with GDF Suez and Distrigas, with responsibility for coordination of all trucked LNG to northeast LDC tanks. Gary brings extensive understanding of regional LDCs assets and their service needs.
Xpress Natural Gas operates a fleet of over 100 high-volume trailers, with equipment capable of maintaining rates in excess of 900 million cubic feet per hour.
“Scalability and redundancy are core to our operations,” said Matt Smith, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “We can rapidly mobilize resources and assets from any of our eight gas dispatch centers to provide high volume gas supply to locations on little or no notice.”
