The US supply of natural gas has increased dramatically over the last few years as a result of improved extraction techniques. The renaissance of energy production in the US is leading to a number of new and growing investing themes:
NATURAL GAS AS FUEL
Natural Gas Replacing Diesel - Our country’s energy revolution has unleashed a massive amount of natural gas, and its use can displace more expensive diesel in many instances.
On The Road
FLARE GAS CAPTURE AND OIL STABILIZATION
New Equipment Required - As the energy industry becomes more of a mobile, manufacturing industry rather than a large scale, fixed position exploration business, many new wells are drilled, and each time a well is drilled, methane, propane and ethane are released. The industry and government have agreed that this energy needs to be captured for environmental, economic and regulatory reasons. The process of capturing gas requires a variety of equipment. Which we provide.

Economic and regulatory drivers
METHANE CAPTURE FROM LANDFILLS, AGRICULTURE AND WASTE WATER TREATMENT
Credits Available - Due to new regulations, methane capture at these sources are receiving very attractive credits. These credits will spur the development of many digesters across the country
The main sources of human-related methane emissions are agriculture (36 percent), natural gas systems (23 percent), landfills (18 percent), coal mining (10 percent), petroleum systems (6 percent), and wastewater treatment (2 percent).
DISTRIBUTED ENERGY PRODUCTION
Equipment For Multiple Purposes - The distributed energy economy requires billions of dollars of equipment that are designed to be moved in order to process sand, water, water removal, energy, power and fuel.
In developed markets, companies that provide or consume energy are increasingly faced with the need to expand, upgrade or replace their existing energy infrastructure amidst evolving environmental policies, improving system efficiencies, and volatile commodity price movements.
