|Would we expect the rise in PoO to have some effect on sentiment here, as we wait for ENVIA to get started?|
|Thanks MusardDJM for your post.
|Government advances towards tax incentives for renewable fuels... Great news for Velocys!
|From a glass half empty perspective though, it does mean Greensky equivalent is dead until tax incentives are introduced.I guess we all need to write to our MPs.|
|Nice mention. Though I'm not sure I'd favour the Heathrow expansion is I lived under its flight path. Why they can't expand Luton or Stanstead is beyond me, and then improve the links...|
|The Times ...
The government can help to solve the Heathrow third runway emissions row if it throws its weight behind and targets tax breaks for the British production of green jet fuel from waste wood or other biomass, a London-listed, Roman Abramovich-backed company, claims.
Velocys believes it is on the brink of producing renewable fuel for aircraft at a price on a par to that paid in the industry for kerosene. It is developing small plants to convert gases and biomass to liquids in the US and believes that its technology can transform fuel for the airline industry, producing non-hydrocarbon liquids that can be blended with conventional jet fuel with no loss in performance, no increase in the price but with much lower emissions.
David Pummell, chief executive, said: “There is an opportunity to build a renewable jet fuel plant in the UK, but it is not a government scheme and it is getting no government support. If there are significant tax breaks, then we can build a financial case and really attract the investors we would need. If the government is serious about lowering emissions, they can prime the pump.”|
|I genuinely do not think that Velocys or its major shareholders will allow a low bid and take out to occur....
1) RA would have done or at least tried that already. The fact that he stopped at 29.5% shows his intentions are both supportive and friendly. These are the company words to me from Velocys at the time.
2) There are other major shareholders who paid over 221p who will be looking at a decent return.
3) Velocys have invested over $300m getting us to where we are. This will not get lost in translation
4) Envia is the first smallscale GTL plant of its kind and the whole world will be watching to see its success. We have but a short time to see the result of our endeavours.
So the next period will be most exciting and the share price will respond and Velocys will make a significant step forward on the world stage.|
|Erogenous, yes indeedy. The halt of decline at current levels is to me a sign that buyers are interested, and short term profit have been taken, pending the news over next couple of months. If we get lift off, the potential of this chart is most impressive, though there are clearly huge requirements in terms of sales to b/e. But given the proving up of the working reference plant c/o Envia, I'd be surprised if a big player doesn't simply take it out. How much would they need to pay from here - a pound?|
|Brucie5. I averaged up at the point of the spike and are back in negative territory. However, looks to me as if the 50,100 and 200 day MA are pointing upwards so I am hoping tat the worst is behind us and that the share price climbs back to test previous psychological levels (50p / 75p / 100p etc)|
|Has the end-product from Envia been pre-sold, I wonder, and what is it worth at today's prices?
I have emailed the question to the company and await an answer.|
|Well, this is a share that exemplifies the cognitive faults that we all have to battle against as investors/traders. Having seen the break above the 200ma in October, I bought in beautifully ahead of the big rise; then sold down, only to see it rise further; bought back in, only to see it fall back to current level. Lessons? Don't buy a spike, chase a price, a share or a bus - cos there's always going to be a better on around the corner!
Problem with this share is, 1. it's on AIM; and 2, it's not yet making money! So one of the proverbial story stocks. But all things being equal, and assuming the waxes start flowing from ENVIA any time before Christmas, we should be rejoining our journey upwards.
If this is the case - a big IF - and you feel confident about the story, the chart suggests the retrace is probably over. Though risks clearly remain.|
|That is just a coincidence and Christmas is still far away. The probability that ENVIA will produce a drop of FT product before Christmas is high. That will send the share price up until the market realizes that the plant will have to run for an extended period before an order is placed.|
|fluky. with the share price back at 35p now your gloomy appearance is well timed ;)|
|Sure. But I'd prefer to hear that from an authoritative source.|
|No I do not know them but the comment here is to reassure people that GTL in all capacities is here to stay with Velocys in the front for small scale...|
|Gas-to-Liquids Processes for Chemicals and Energy Market to Reach $15.5 billion with 6.7% CAGR Forecast to 2022
Global Gas-to-Liquids processes for chemicals and energy market is expected to reach $9.2 billion growing at a CAGR of 6.7% to reach $15.5 billion by 2022
PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, November 21, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Gas-to-Liquids Processes for Chemicals and Energy Industry
The Global Gas-to-Liquids processes for chemicals and energy market is expected to reach $9.2 billion growing at a CAGR of 6.7% to reach $15.5 billion by 2022. Gas to liquids (GTL) is a refinery process that converts natural gas into liquid fuels such as gasoline. Methane-rich gases are renewed into liquid synthetic fuels either via direct conversion via syngas as an intermediary. Rapid energy consumption and price of oil and gases are the foremost drivers for gas to liquid market, whereas the fixed reactors and large sized equipment are inhibiting the growth. The increasing consumption of natural gas, especially in emerging countries such as India, Japan and China act as the opportunity for gas to liquids market.

The most common technique used at GTL facilities is Fischer-Tropsch (F-T) synthesis. F-T synthesis has gained recent attention because of the rising extend between the cost of natural gas and the cost of petroleum products. Lubricating products and production of waxes are another primary product of the F-T process and developers have reworked on their designs, to increase the enduring profitability of GTL plants. The increasing demand for waxes that are produced by F-T process is experiencing stable growth over the past decade. F-T waxes are used in industries producing paints & coatings, candles, plastic, resins, tires, synthetic rubber and other products.
Global gas-to-liquids processes for chemicals and energy market is mainly segregated by production, by size, by products and by geography. Based on production, the market is segmented into Methanol to Gasoline (MTG) process, gasoline plus process, fischer-tropsch process. Based on Size, the market is categorized into small scale and large scale. Based on products, the market is segmented into diesel, ethane, LPG, base oil and paraffin. Market by geography, is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. Due to the rise in natural gas consumption, Asia Pacific is expected to be the leading market for Gas to liquids (GTL)|
|Well he does have RR engines....in Airforce 1/Trump airways....whatever!!!|
|Your only chance in America is if TRUMP puts some in his plane? - Restrictions are off in USA - burn what you like!|
|Now that Paris Agreement is signed it would be a good time to launch and remind the world that VLS can make 'renewable' jet fuel from MSW and landfill gas.|
|VLS has not announced the bpd as I think there was some embargo on that but looking at the photos you can work out the capacity.
On the media front ..I expect to see some media attention very soon.|
|Visionon - there seemed to be several articles published last week that shared very similar text - I only copied the first two I found - so it would suggest the PR team is raising interest in preparation for launch.As for capacity, I don't think VLS has officially confirmed the number (although happy to be proved wrong).|
Both articles look to have been based on an official briefing for journos as the text is similar. So I'm guessing this is the run-up to something more official, maybe in December.
Has it ever been confirmed officially by VLS that it is 300bpd ?|
