(Wyo.)-State Study Analyzes Possibility Of Liquid Natural Gas
CASPER, Wyo. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - A study is underway on how to create and sell liquefied natural gas in Wyoming.
Rob Hurless is Gov. Matt Mead's energy strategy adviser.
Hurless says the study will look at potential consumption of LNG for high-horsepower equipment engines such as mine haul trucks, railroad locomotives and large pipeline compressor stations. He says many of those run on diesel but LGN could potentially save companies money depending on prices over the long term.
He says LNG is powering four coal-haul trucks at mines in the Powder River Basin.
Hurless says the study will also consider the possibilities of constructing LNG plants in Wyoming or setting up smaller, skid-mounted plants throughout the state.
The state and industry are sharing the cost of the $150,000 study.
