Governor Matt Mead unveiled a report Monday showing that Wyoming is well positioned to be a leader in developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry for high horsepower uses. The “Wyoming LNG Roadmap Report” looks at how LNG can supplement diesel in mining, rail, drilling, pressure pumping and over-the-road trucking industries.

Among other things, the report analyzes the amount of diesel used in Wyoming’s high horsepower industries and inventories the engines currently in use in those industries. It shows that the Powder River Basin is the “heart of the market” for LNG.

The report produced by Gladstein, Neandross & Associates was paid for by the State of Wyoming and several private partners.
