Coalition forms Texas Natural Gas Foundation

A coalition of industry leaders, politicians, and academic leaders has formed the Texas Natural Gas Foundation as a new source to help educate the public and track natural gas energy trends in Texas and the nation, according to the San Antonio Business Journal.

The nonprofit foundation is being led by Texas State Rep. Jason Isaac and by Ken Morgan, director of the Texas Christian University's Energy Institute.

Known by the initials TXNG, the group will report on energy production trends, new technology, and economic impacts related to natural gas production in Texas. The organization will be based in Austin, but will develop a science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum unit on natural gas for students across Texas.

TXNG plans to host a workshop on Nov. 12 near Houston, where fleet managers, marine operators, and exploration and production companies will have the opportunity to share information about transitioning to natural gas.
