‘Exclusive’ Tour in Connection with the HHP Summit

The Florida East Coast Railway gave High Horsepower (HHP) Summit participants a look at its liquefied natural gas operations in Jacksonville, Fla. last week. The “exclusive tour,” FECR says, included participants not only from rail but from the marine, mining, E&P/energy exploration and production and power generation HHP sectors.

GNA Report on the Eve of HHP Summit in Florida

A new report authored by Gladstein, Neandross & Associates and released by the California Energy Commission assesses the feasibility, issues, and potential benefits associated with expanded use of natural gas in California high horsepower (HHP) seaport applications.

The sixth edition of GNA’s Natural Gas for High Horsepower (HHP) Summit takes place this coming week: November 6-9 at the Prime Osborn Convention Center in Jacksonville, Fla.

The HHP Summit 2017 exposition will be open this coming Tuesday and Wednesday, November 7-8.

Strong Societal Benefits

The new report, The Feasibility, Issues, and Benefits of Expanded Use of Natural Gas at Seaports and Other High Horsepower Applications by GNA senior VP Jon Leonard finds that using natural gas in HHP seaport applications can provide strong societal benefits, especially in high-impact sectors like marine vessels and locomotives. The use of natural gas can significantly reduce key harmful air pollutants, thereby improving ambient air quality.

“By switching to natural gas,” states a report summary, “HHP end users have opportunity to simultaneously comply with challenging regulatory requirements, while potentially reducing life-cycle costs.

RNG? Even Better

“Moreover, if these fleets can gain affordable access to growing volumes of RNG [renewable natural gas] in California, they will be able to realize deep reductions of GHG [greenhouse gas] emissions.”

The GNA report for CEC report focuses on of natural gas in California’s three major ports: Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Oakland, facilities that “act as the anchors of California’s world-class goods movement system.

“To date,” GNA notes, “actual use of natural gas to power HHP vehicles, vessels and equipment at these and other North American ports has essentially been limited to proof-of-concept tests and a few early market commercial deployments. In addition, low oil prices over the last several years have inhibited further growth of demonstrations and deployments.

If the Price of Petroleum Rises…

“However, the predicted return of higher oil prices, combined with recent phasing-in of stricter emission regulations, has stimulated new interest in switching to clean-burning natural gas engines.

LNG/liquefied natural gas fuel systems are receiving the most interest for these large HHP applications, but CNG/compressed natural gas fuel systems may also play a role, the report notes. “Gradually, RNG can be phased in to displace fossil-based natural gas, to sharply reduce GHG emissions and maximize the climate change benefits.”

As summarized in the report, there are important technical, policy, institutional, and economic challenges that must be addressed before California can realize the major benefits of using natural gas in seaport HHP applications. Recommendations are provided for actions that can be helpful to enable fuel switching in marine and locomotive applications serving California seaports.

Early Bird Registration Has Opened for HHPs 2017:
Natural Gas Fuel for High Horsepower Applications

Like the idea of running large, powerful engines on natural gas instead of diesel? Of all but eliminating the heavy pollution from ships? Driving the engines on frack spreads and oil production rigs on the gas that’s right there, rather than trucking in dirtier diesel?

LNG-fueled locomotives?

Mine trucks?
