    Both Europe ans Asia have many suppliers now and in the future
    Both will buy from the US
    Europe more because its closer
    Ir will get down to who is the cheapest
    We have to ship a long way
    Both Europe ans Asia want diversification in who they buy from
    So these early plants are just that,signed contracts for say 65% of production
    Its still to be determined how big it will be in US for export
    There are huge number of players
    Of coarse there will be at least 4 or 5 exporting plants
    How profitable thet will be will be determined by US price and world price
    Most of the 4 or 5 to be built now have signed contracts for say that 65% to 70% to be a about enough to pay their interest

    In order to get a fair look at clne
    1st
    They have said they are for right now not going to invest in their old business
    They here just like to throw out numbers and mot talk about fundamentals
    I have not looked at them,new business
    Why are these places getting ng delivered?
    I would guess
    They can use the gas for heating ,make electricity and such
    They appear to be enough distance that they are not getting ng delivered in cng form,I assume these are lng trucks
    If not some correct
    When you make lng its 75 cents a gallon plus delivery
    This would not be a long term plan
    You are getting this way because you hope in the long term a pipe will be built
    So this is just a few years this way
    Yes there may be huge opportunities for clne in this field and may be money in it
    But not huge profits unless huge numbers of these
    Yes their may be huge number of these
    Ng is cheap and will level off to around $3.50 kcuft in a few years
    So there may be huge opportunities in temporary supplying areas gas till pipes are built
    Yes and you can do like clne
    Buy from an lng producer ,maybe lease your vehicles and deliver
    Little cash needed
    I said sell because this new business will need stat up cost
    and they will not be making money on their old business and oil will be around $50 to $60 for a while
    The US is just too good at getting it
    There are plenty that can produce at this price
    So for now large trucks are not coming because oil is just too cheap
    The amount of actual profit or even gross profit from these new deals is just not enough to turn this company around
    They can not make much out of it
    Its just too easy for any one to do and little capital needed and even a 3 rd grader could do it,no teck needed
    So its still the same for clne
    Get you over head down by located at a cheap pace like Texas
    There are so many other places with talent and rent cheaper
    The days when it was just them are over

    all of these goals are good
    I my self never are for just doing this for a head line
    I am for doing but look at cost and lean to this
    I am posting today to inform people on water heaters
    There is huge change right now
    Sizes ,insulation added
    A 50 gallon electric water heater must be a heat pump ,some 80% hot water heaters must be 90% and pvc exhaust
    If you have a water heater over 10 years old ,change
    Or at least look at whether their is huge change in your size
    Some will require thousands of dollars in changes
    Brands
    ao smith
    state
    bradfort white,are the bets

    is it not interesting that these do not want to talk about
    net asset per share and its history
    whats their credit score for a company in this business should be able to borrow cheaply to make investments
    their gross profit vrs over head
    I guess no one should care about fundamentals
    This is news to me
    Am I missing some thing?

    who spotted 8 years ago that their gross profit was fair less than their cost to be in business
    Who spotted that they only owned pumps ,not stations
    who spotted whwn the president said that 10,00 vehicles would be sold
    he was full of bs
    than the president came out he heard it and would not reveal his source
    I could go on and on
    So it must be it takes some one with little intelligence to do
    this.
    or is it you are bias

    When will investors learn
    Any one can win a contract
    The ability to make money enough to cover your over head is another

    Did they not have little competition till a few years ago?
    They got money by diluting their stock by over 20% a year
    In other words their cost of capital was free
    most of what they built was free since they got the money by dilution
    Even with this they never have made a profit with good will
    They now can not do this because wall street will not accept any more
    If they could not make money with free capital to build stations and others you now expect them to make money when they have to borrow and pay interest on capital
    This after 10 years of free capital in a large % of projects and now huge other numbers of players
    Next
    What have they got?
    All most all of what they have is contracts
    When the contract runs out
    They have nothing but old equipment
    Since putting better equipment is out there
    So they have nothing in most of their places when contract runs out
    Have you looked at where they are located at
    Some of the most costly real estate in the US
    What do you have to pay for rent
    What do you have to pay for employes there vrs a place where wages are 1/2
    Would you if making a choice locate there
    Is there a need to locate there
    Is it the hub of natural gas or talent
    Who would be that stupid to locate there?
    A guess a president who does not care and likes living there
    He can pay himself and the rest what ever he wants and any cost for that location
    Management and Boone control enough shares and there is nothing you can do about it
    Go back when they started.
    They put in their documents
    We will run the company for us
    What might or think is best for us even if its not the best for the rest of share holders
    In others words the rest of share holders can do nothing about it
    They stated this clearly
    And you want others to buy into this
    We can pay us any thing
    leave or locate the company any where
    And the rest of share holders too bad
    If you can sell this ,good luck

    what`s the price of ng going to be

    by saltybear2005 Apr 23, 2015 5:55 PM
    rbtsherman rbtsherman Apr 23, 2015 10:10 PM Flag

    for export
    shipping $2.50 to $3.25,Europe ,Asia
    make lng $.75
    Selling price there $7.50
    That puts it about $3.50
    !/2 of shale producer will go out of business this year
    You need about $3.50 to bring 1/2 of those back
    And $4 to $5 for large export,that price we wil not be able to sell after adding
    lng and shipping price
    So we will not be shipping huge amounts except for plants already in construction .We will probally over build export plants,so do not invest in them
    Ones in construction now have enough signed contracts to make just a little
    So it will be $3.50 to $4 here
