Big boom in Natural Gas

According to an article by The Growth Stock Wire, new technologies have helped the U.S uncover a massive supply of natural gas. In turn this has pushed prices down and made it economical for transportation companies to switch from diesel to natural gas. Furthermore, on the back of this new energy boom industry is now flooding back the U.S where companies are taking advantage of this cheap energy to fuel a US industrial renaissance.

Clients of UCG are taking advantage of this massive long term trend by investing in those companies which stand to benefit from the transportation and usage of cheap energy. Lower prices have now made it more economical for transportation companies and industry to use natural gas over alternative forms of fossil fuel.

The article below makes the following points amongst others:

  • Billionaire energy investor T. Boone Pickens, believe that the majority of 18-wheeler truck fleets in the US will be fuelled by natural gas in seven years.
  • Companies like UPS, Wal-Mart, and Waste Management are already switching their fleets to run on the clean fuel.
  • The opportunity is huge with China’s trucking market is 10 times the size of the US and trucking industry experts project 5% of the millions of heavy-duty trucks in Europe will run on the clean fuel by 2015.
