Have been off this Board for awhile (conducting a job search, of all things!), but thought of a few possibilities regarding potential markets for your company's product. 1)LNG tankers - Phillips and Marathon own a couple which make 18 trips per year from Kenai, AK to Tokyo Power and Electric transporting LNG. They lose a small portion of their cargo to direct use by the ships, and some evaporation. Since they're paid on a $/BTU basis, any loss to the above could be substantial over time. Maybe your product could make them more efficient. 2)LNG plants - they are nothing more than gigantic 2- or 3- stage cascading refrigeration units which utilize the throughput NG as part of the refrigeration process. Seems like the piping might be made more efficient through use of your product, thereby increasing overall plant efficiency and reducing costs. 3)The Space Shuttle LOX and H tanks - again increasing refrigeration efficiency and reducing the costs per mission! 4) Any subsea pipelines or control lines utilizing methanol or glycolated ethanol to prevent freeze-up. Send me the check when your business takes off;-).

P.S. I'd make a plug for any companies you know looking for geo-types, but that would be a misuse of this Board...
