Registration is now open for the Natural Gas for High Horsepower (HHP) Summit 2013, North America’s premier conference on the power and potential of natural gas fuel for marine, rail, E&P, mining, earthmoving, and off-pipeline industrial applications. Early bird registration for HHP Summit 2013 is available now through April 30 and offers significant savings.
Scheduled for September 17 – 19 in Chicago, HHP Summit 2013 will offer a unique opportunity to learn from companies that are using LNG to save 30 to 50% in fuel costs and significantly reduce emissions.
The inaugural HHP Summit was a huge success with more 850 registered attendees, and the 2013 Summit is expected to draw more than 1,000 attendees as excitement in the industry continues to build. In the past week alone, several exciting announcements have taken place:
- HHP Summit 2013 sponsor and exhibitor Shell announced plans to build two natural gas liquefaction plants in Geismer, Louisiana and Sarnia, Canada that will provide LNG to a growing base of customers in the marine, E&P, and heavy-duty truck sectors.
- The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad announced it is pursuing a pilot project to explore the technical and economic viability of LNG as a locomotive fuel. The company plans to test a small number of locomotives later this year.
- The race to adopt LNG as a cost savings and emission reduction measure in transportation is opening a new front in the global competition between GE and Caterpillar, two of the world’s leading high horsepower engine providers.
- Chart Industries boasted record earnings in the last quarter of 2012—up 38% from their Q4 2011 sales due to the steep rise in global demand for LNG fueling equipment.
