Oversupplied producers see room to grow with LNG-powered vehicles
HOUSTON -- The use of liquefied natural gas as a vehicle fuel is expanding arguably faster than many in the industry anticipated. Compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) have powered vehicles for many years, but those fuels have always served a very niche market. However, the glut of domestic gas reserves created by the recent explosion in production has led producers to see the vehicle market as one attractive new demand center for their surplus gas.
