CNG Forum set for January 29

CNG Forum set for January 29

Register online to attend the CNG Forum on January 29.

Join the CNG Forum Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 7:30-11:30 a.m at Panola College.. The forum is expected to bring intense topics to help better understand the natural gas economy and how it impacts our everyday environment. It is intended to provide information alternative energy sources. Some of the major topics discussed will be:

  • How we currently produce natural gas
  • Why we need natural gas
  • What is CNG and how is it used for transportation
  • CNG distribution
  • CNG vehicles
  • CNG uses


Dr. Ken Morgan, Director of Texas Christian University’s Energy Institute, will provide the keynote address. He earned degrees in geology, environmental engineering and resource management, and surprisingly enough, puts his knowledge of natural gas to use by driving a Honda GX-NGV to help promote use of clean-burning natural gas.

Two industry leaders are confirmed for a panel discussion: Jason French, director, Government and Public Affairs for Cheniere Energy, Inc., and Jeffrey F. Holliday, Public Affairs Manager-Haynesville Shale for Chesapeake Energy.

Dr. Joe Shannon, Panola College Vice President of Instruction, said more than 200 people have registered to attend the Forum.

Registered attendees will begin the day with a complimentary breakfast beginning at 7:30 a.m. in the Panola College Ballroom inside the Phoebe Sue Perlman Student Center. The Forum begins at 9 a.m. in the Q.M. Martin Auditorium.
