National Summit on Natural Gas Comes to Jacksonville

The Natural Gas for High Horsepower Summit, an annual gathering of high horsepower industry stakeholders, is coming to Jacksonville this November, as part of a partnership between the JaxChamber and Gladstein, Neandross & Associates, a clean transportation and energy consulting firm. The four-day event brings professionals from marine, mining, rail and stationary power generation sectors together to discuss the use of natural gas in high-energy situations.

“Jacksonville is committed to supporting the burgeoning natural gas industry, which drives economic development, energy security and improves environmental sustainability,” said Chris Quinn, the chamber's vice president of industry and government affairs. Quinn noted developments by Crowley Maritime Corp. and others to power vessels on liquified natural gas (LNG) and export LNG to the Caribbean.

“We are thrilled to bring the HHP Summit to our city as we become the leader in natural gas-fueled ocean going vessels, locomotives and over-the-road trucks, as well as the launching point for the export of natural gas to remote power generation and industrial markets in the Caribbean,” he said.

The event will be held Nov. 6 through 9 at the Prime Osborne Convention Center. It will offer plenaries, breakouts and technical workshops, as well as off-site tours to Jacksonville projects.

The tours will visit Eagle LNG's Maxville Plant, Crowley's LNG Bunker Terminal, Tote Maritime's LNG vessel, Florida East Coast Rail's LNG locomotives, Jacksonville Transportation Authority's compressed natural gas operation and UPS LNG trucks and refueling station.

“Jacksonville has become the world’s most progressive and active marketplace for natural gas HHP operations in 2017,” said Erik Neandross, CEO of Gladstein, Neandross & Associates which puts on the conference.

The conference will focus on growth markets and opportunities, LNG and CNG supply chains and long-term industry issues. There will also be a variety of natural gas engines, equipment and technology accessible at the event.

Tickets for the event costs between $395 and $895 if bought before Oct. 1.
