  • Ukraine Crisis: U.S. LNG Can Help, But Not The Way People Think [View article]
    You are forgetting natrural gas which can replace a large percentage of gasoline and diesel. It is only a matter of need and will. The technology is already well developed and ready to go. Natural gas can run any engine with minor adaptation. See Useful References for The Natural Gas Revolution: http://bit.ly/13CRxqi

    Europe will realize the need to frack, and Russia will fade economically. Europe needs to invest more in military to fend off Russias aggressions.

    Infrastructure takes time, but it also takes time for Russia to get pipelines to Vladivostock, which is very expensive. It is important to see this as a race to dominance in the gas and oil market. Those first get the greatest profits to pay for all the infrastructure they just invested in. There are many competitors, and more joining this race.

    Russia needs to also learn to use their own cheap energy at home, not just for export.

    It seems like Putin is the biggest ultra nationalist in the world right now. He encourages Russian ethnic domination of minorities in Russia and elsewhere also. He calles Svoboda fascist, but he is the same.

    Europe needs low priced energy also. Expensive energy will not allow it to compete with the rest of the world. European companies are already being built in the USA. Europe needs to frack ASAP. That is also the quickest way to reduce CO2 emissions, and real pollutants.

  • Gartman Part II: Natural Gas Could Easily Spike To $10 With Producers Unable To Hedge [View article]
    Good article, but there are many more new exporters coming online than just the USA. All producers are working on exporting more natural gas. Australia, East Africa, Israel, etc. The question is only how long it will take. Obama should free up non park federal lands immediately also We need to make the most of the good prices because eventually gas will be cheap worldwide. China is making progress in fracking and offshore so will meet much of its own need long term. Russia is screwed long term due to lower pricing coming from all over the world.

  • Ukraine Crisis: U.S. LNG Can Help, But Not The Way People Think [View article]
    Very good article. My biggest objection is that you do do not mention all of the other new exporters coming to market. Maybe you know more about the timing and export potential of Israel, East Africa, Australia, etc. When do you think they will come online. Will they be able to increase LNG shipments soon? I understand that their are plenty of LNG ships ready to go and more coming.

    Does Eastern Europe have enough infrastructure, or can they quickly build enough, to distribute LNG including to Ukraine? Can coal substitute for natural gas in the meantime, and are Ukraine's coal regions only in the eastern portions?

    I find it curious that no one ever mentions the fact that we just got done exporting record amounts of propane. That had to have hurt our own needs. Next year exports should be held up until we have enough reserves guaranteed.

  • Clean Energy Fuels' LNG Strategy Is Crumbling [View article]
    CLNE has been a great pioneer leader in this field and will continue to be so. My vote is with CNG for most uses though.

    Our cold winter should give some liquidity to a lot of natural gas producers, and they needed some profits.

    Dual fuel technology is a big plus for many buyers. It gives them the confidence of being able to find fuel and also to overcome any fear inherent in not having the power of diesel if and when needed.

    I think it may hava a lot to do with the great importance of the development of natural gas infrastructure. Something that many people are not aware of. This is not just some company working on cell phones.

    Great to see so many excellent comments, and such a great couple of articles. I favor CNG but LNG will do well for ships and railroads. It will be interesting to see how the long haul trucks will work out. Don't forget the millions of pickup trucks that could be using natural gas, trash trucks, cement trucks, delivery trucks, taxis etc. They will all demand CNG in the future.

    I think this is a better station map for CNG: http://www.cngprices.com

    I firmly believe that LNG will eventually be used by aircraft. It is only a matter of designing the airframes for the tanks. On the other side aviation fuel may drop in cost due to lack of demand for other uses.
