  • NGV Motori Partnerships Broaden Supply in US
    May 13, 2015 | USA, Alexandria VA
    Lion busNGV Motori, a manufacturer and supplier of natural gas engines and conversion kits for aftermarket diesel engines, has entered into two partnerships. The first, with natural gas engine manufacturer Westport will supply OEM quality conversion kits for diesel to natural gas engines. The other partnership, with Canadian bus manufacturer Lion Bus, has led to the unveiling of what is claimed to be America’s first OEM CNG Type C school bus.
    The Westport partnership will enable NGV Motori to supply OEM quality conversion kits and natural gas engines, incorporating the quality and expertise of Westport for all electronic management systems.
    ”This partnership enables NGV Motori to not only provide best of breed product but also support after sales service and parts using the existing network that Westport already has established in North American markets,” says Fury Zaidi, President of NGV Motori.
    The company says fleet owners can convert their existing diesel fleet to natural gas and get the quality and performance that they expect from an OEM. With limited options for new natural gas engines, NGV Motori-Westport we can now offer fleet owners the option to convert their existing fleet irrespective of model or brand and take part in all the benefits that natural gas brings.

    Acquisition Target by cm199178
    Upon review of WPRT's balance sheet , it may seem improbable, but i do believe WPRT is a great target for those looking to integrate into the natural gas delivery and distribution realm. Seems to me that with XOM's purchase a few year's back, this could be a natural acquisition.

    yup yup ..mmm YUP YUP.mmm...wait hold on gonna switch to my left hand...yeah yeah go on tel me more .... mmmm

  • Ford unveils the CNG F-150 that will be modified in Dallas
    May 5, 2015, 6:40am

    Nicholas Sakelaris
    Staff Writer-
    Dallas Business Journal
    Westport Dallas could be adding workers and shifts to keep up with demand for the new compressed natural gas F-150, said Paul Shaffer, vice president and managing director for the West Dallas conversion company.
    The CNG truck unveiled Monday at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center will start deliveries this winter, according to Ford.
    Asked how many trucks Westport, a Ford quality vehicle modifier, could do, he said it’s too early to say but they are hitting the streets hard to spread the word.

    Environmental concerns drive move to natural gas
    By Elizabeth Roberts

    Environmental concerns drive move to natural gas
    When Deerfield Beach purchased four garbage trucks running on compressed natural gas instead of diesel, it was following in a trend sweeping the nation, said Waste Management spokeswoman Dawn McCormick.

    "Waste Management has more than 4,000 natural gas trucks in North American cities today, including 300 in Florida," McCormick said. "The company is on target to purchase 800 natural gas trucks per year, about 90 percent of its new truck purchases, and ultimately plans to convert its entire fleet of 18,000 collection vehicles to natural gas."

    McCormick said Waste Management is committed to reducing carbon dioxide emissions, and these trucks go far toward achieving that goal.

    "On average, they produce about 22 metric tons fewer of greenhouse gas emissions each year from each truck," she said.

    We are in a death spiral...they have essentially said the next quarters will be worse.
    We won't stay above $10 again, unless they hire a star. Someone with a track record of success.


  • T. Boone Pickens
    T. Boone Pickens spoke at the ACT Expo this week in Dallas, Texas.
    Oil production in the U.S. has helped drive down oil prices, but the “Oracle of Oil” doesn’t expect depressed prices to be the new norm.

    Oil prices have fallen by roughly 50 percent from highs of $100-plus per barrel, but T. Boone Pickens, speaking at ACT Expo in Dallas Tuesday morning, says as U.S. producers throttle back production, he expects oil prices to recover to upwards of $70 per barrel by the end of this year and approach $90 per barrel by the end of 2016.

    “Since 1980, I’ve seen six of these collapses of half the price of oil and I promise you it will be be back up again,” the soon-to-be 87 year old Pickens says.

    Pickens says U.S. producers, who at their peak had more than 1,600 rigs drilling for oil, are responsible for the decline in oil prices. But rig counts have been cut by more than half as prices fell.

    “We’re the one who over supplied the market and caused it to drop $50 per barrel,” he says.

    In comparison, natural gas is trading for around $3 (MMBtu), and wild swings in that market are uncommon and Pickens said, rarely hit the bottom line as hard as swings in oil.

    “If natural gas doubled to $6, it would increase your fuel cost 37 cents a gallon,” he says. “$100 oil in parity with natural gas is $16, and I’ve never seen $16.”

    “I have said that in my lifetime, I don’t think I’ll ever see $10 natural gas again,” he says, “but I do think we may see $8. I think you’re looking at $100-plus for oil forever.”

  • Naysayers, doomsday theorists, and sell-in-May advocates are eating their words after forecasts of $20 oil proved to be dead wrong.

    Yes, crude oil continues to gallop higher, with prices rising 50% in just over three months.

    This week, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) soared above $60 per barrel to $62.58, the highest point so far this year. While Brent Crude went up to $69.93 per barrel.

    So how the heck did this happen… and – more importantly – will the momentum continue?

    Well, a series of sequential events just happened to fall like a stack of dominos and drove the price of global crude oil up.

    You see, U.S. oil production has dropped from its peak and continues to fall. At the same time, rising demand, which has materialized since the collapse of crude oil prices, is allaying a global glut and driving a rebound in crude prices.
