Ally: Okay, so there was a question about the potential fueling options in the New York Metro area. Johanna can you do a quick on-the-fly evaluation?
Johanna: Sure! Let me zoom into the region. Remember earlier we showed an analysis indicating that natural gas has some penetration in this area, so I’ll turn on the natural gas layers. As you can see, there are three distinct strategic thrust areas: the areas outlined in blue. Those shafts indicate where we have a deep penetration of natural gas stations — indicated by the blue dots — along an interstate.
Johanna: First consider the shaft from Scranton heading east. There we have an exciting opportunity for double penetration into both New York and New Jersey. Next, while there is only a single station in White Plains, with some attention that shaft could rise and stimulate the upstate New York market. Finally the shaft along the Long Island Expressway has so many stations it almost seems to be ready to explode with potential.
Johanna: This map makes me so excited about the growing opportunities in the New York region. Transforming these shafts into natural gas corridors isn’t going to be easy — in fact it’s going to be hard, very hard. In the end, with a little political and technical stroking, I know our strategic thrusts will climax into a robust natural gas fueling infrastructure in this region.
Ally: Gosh, you’ve got me worked up! I can’t believe how huge this opportunity is. That was a stimulating question and a really deep analysis by Johanna. Thanks! Are there any other regions folks would like to explore?
