Expediting LNG Fuel Supply & Emerging LNG ISO Container Markets


Promoted as a showcase for new technologies that enable fleets and industry to expedite LNG fuel use, Zeus Development Corporation hosted a conference on June 25 and 26 at the Wyndham Hotel in Houston, Texas. The two day conference on LNG Fuel Supply and Containment lived up to its billing. 

In addition to informative and interesting workshops, the event also included an outdoor exhibit of equipment as well as a Zeus organized plant tour of the WesMor Cryogenic Manufacturing plant in nearby La Porte, Texas.

Expediting LNG fuel supply was the topic du jour on June 25. On June 26 the emerging LNG ISO container markets were covered in detail. Some participating organizations included: Applied Natural Gas Fuels, Caterpillar Inc., CCH Equipment Co., Chart Industries- LNG Solutions, Cosmodyne, Crowley Solutions, Cryoquip, Inc., CryoSystems International, Encana Natural Gas Inc, Gas Innovations, GE Oil & Gas, Genox Transportation, Inc., INOXCVA, Jack B. Kelley, Inc., Linde LLC, LNG Central, Prometheus Energy, Specialty Trailer Leasing, Taylor-Wharton, Transgas, WesMor Cryogenic Manufacturing, and Zeus Development.

Zeus Development Corporation set the stage for LNG discussions by forecasting that United States’ LNG fuel demand will grow eightfold over current demand, reaching 400 trailer loads or four million gallons per day (2.4 million tonnes) by 2020. US and Canadian demand will come primarily from trucking, drilling, fracturing, and marine applications. However, Zeus President Bob Nimocks pointed out that rail, mining, and other industrial markets will contribute to this demand as demonstration projects transition to full-scale adoption. “Accelerators to this trend,” Nimocks stated, “are growing oil and gas price spreads, which have been widening since April; greater manufacturing efficiencies for LNG equipment; a rectified federal fuel tax; and globalization of the LNG fuel market.”
