Pickens to Headline World LNG Fuels 2014
HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/13 -- Legendary investor and
NGV champion T. Boone Pickens has agreed to deliver the keynote
address to World LNG Fuels 2014, Jan. 22, in Houston. The conference,
which is the largest and oldest on liquefied natural gas (LNG) as
fuel, covers the growing trend by heavy-duty fleets to fuel with
natural gas. LNG tends to be preferred fleets of highway trucks,
locomotives, ships and stationary power units due its higher storage
density than compressed natural gas.
"No one has had a greater impact on the use of American natural gas
for transportation than T. Boone Pickens," said Bob Nimocks, head of
the conference program committee and president of Zeus Development
Corporation, an energy analyst and information provider. "Since the
early 1990s, he has had a vision of how to make America energy
independent with natural gas. We're delighted delegates will be able
to learn from his insights and perspectives."
Heralded as one of America's most successful businessmen, T. Boone
Pickens first built one of the country's largest independent oil
companies, Mesa Petroleum. Then, he founded one of its most
successful investment funds, BP Capital. In 2008, he authored the
Pickens Plan (www.PickensPlan.com), which has spurred a grass-roots
campaign to reduce U.S. dependence on imported oil.
A staunch advocate for American energy independence, Mr. Pickens
aggressively pursues a wide range of business interests in
alternative energy, including the NASDAQ-traded, Clean Energy Fuels
(NASDAQ: CLNE), which founded and took public in May 2008. Mr.
Pickens can be followed on Twitter @boonepickens.
World LNG Fuels 2014 will be held at the George R Brown Convention
Center in Houston, Jan. 21-23. The industry event will feature
exhibitions of LNG fuel equipment and vehicles, tours of facilities
and more than 50 presentations by executives leading the market.
