Natural Gas Utilization Conference Set for September 6 and 7
Posted: August 19, 2012
The Natural Gas Utilization Conference is September 6th and 7th at the Penn State Conference Center in State College. This year’s conference is a must for industry advocates, fleet managers, legislators and clean transportation advocates to learn more about the critical efforts underway to increase the use of natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) generated from shale gas plays in the Appalachian basin and across the nation.
The first day of the conference will focus on transportation. Panel discussions will address natural gas powered vehicles, fueling station options and vehicle and engine conversion options. A reception will follow for attendees to see several natural gas powered vehicles on display and talk to the providers about the features and benefits of the vehicles.
The second day of the conference will focus on the use of NGLs and natural gas to liquids conversion technologies. Current projects for the conversion and utilization of NGLs and the various technologies being researched will be discussed. The second day will also include a ‘Deep Dive’ transportation workshop for those interested in what is occurring in the Commonwealth related to natural gas refueling infrastructure and vehicles.
Presenters include researchers, industry experts and entrepreneurs who will provide an increased understanding of natural gas use in transportation. This is a great opportunity for attendees who are considering purchasing natural gas vehicles, converting vehicles to run on natural gas, or installing natural gas refueling infrastructure to talk to experts in the field.

The event is being coordinated by Penn State’s Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research (MCOR) and Ben Franklin Technology Partners Shale Gas Innovation & Commercialization Center.
