HELP hoUSton

HarveyThe devastating scenes from Hurricane Harvey in the Greater South East Texas area have been global news over the past week.  High water, helpless animals and newly homeless people captured the attention and hearts of everyone.  However, even the endless news coverage cannot do the magnitude of the destruction justice.  I know – I spent the better part of a week swimming through flood water, assisting in evacuations, being evacuated by boat, and tirelessly working towards finding a dry place to rest.

As the water recedes and the news crews move on, the people of Houston and the surrounding areas need the world’s attention more than ever.  People like me (pictured right) are no longer wading through flood water, but rather rummaging through destruction to start the rebuild.  NOW is the time for the global energy community to rally behind their friends, colleagues and even competitors in Houston to contribute to the healing process!

I am happy to announce that Mennta Energy Solutions is doing their very best to rebuild the city that has been a gracious host to our events for decades.  First, we are literally putting boots on the ground.  Our CEO & President, Clara Lippert Glenn, is providing me the flexibility to spend time away from work to help the community.  Therefore, if you are reading this and need help with anything flood related in the Houston area please email me at  I will do my very best to come help!

Next, we will be giving away free online training courses (valued at 210USD) to anyone who donates at least 100USD to one of the following Houston-based charities that will be vital to the community going forward:  Houston Food Bank & Houston Humane Society.  Simply email me a copy of your donation receipt and I will personally pass along your free course.  You will be able to choose from any of our over 90 course titles on!

"Here in the America we just finished up one of the most exciting weeks of the year – Shark Week! This annual event on Discovery Channel has been appointment television for decades for the millions of people who are fascinated and terrified of sharks. Among those people, you can certainly include our President & CEO, Clara Lippert Glenn. As you might remember from her 2013 Corner Office article in The New York Times, she would choose to be a great white shark if she had to become an animal!

Being the supreme predator in the ocean must be nice, but being the top of the food chain in the energy business world has its perks, too. Personally, I think there is a lot to learn from sharks about achieving and maintaining success over their 400 million year run of dominance..."

New Online Course! Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)

Compressed Natural Gas is an online training course that will examine the current and evolving market for compressed natural gas (CNG) fueled vehicles. While CNG fueled vehicles have experienced significant market penetration globally, their adoption in the US has been relatively modest due to the abundance of gasoline/diesel fuels, the limited availability of CNG fueled vehicles and the filling station infrastructure required to support these vehicles. The status of CNG fueled vehicles in the US has begun to change as corporations, local and federal governments and private individuals seek out lower cost and cleaner options than traditional gasoline and diesel powered vehicles.

There are no pre-requisites for this course and there is no advance preparation required.

You will learn to:

  •     Recognize the scale and scope of the CNG fuel market
  •     Identify the processes of locating and producing commercially viable quantities of natural gas
  •     List the benefits of fueling vehicles with CNG as opposed to liquid fossil fuels
  •     Identify CNG pricing and how it compares to crude oil based fuels
  •     Differentiate between Fast-fill and Time-fill CNG dispensing methods
  •     Distinguish between the different CNG filling station strategies, both those privately owned/operated and those open to the public
  •     Point out how large fleets operated by shipping and logistics companies are converting their energy intensive operations to CNG-fueled vehicles

Practice exercises and self-assessment quizzes are included to help reinforce key topics introduced throughout the course.

A comprehensive final test will be given at the end of the course.

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. - Benjamin Franklin

I have been working in energy training for over seven years and I am quite surprised I had not come across this quote until recently.  Frankly, pun intended, it’s the unofficial mantra here at Mennta Energy Solutions as we work daily to offer the optimal learning experience for professionals!

While our state-of-the-art online training library offers a lot of interactivity, there is no substitute for engaging with one of our experts and your industry peers as you tackle real-life simulations.  For instance, take our confirmed-to-run..."
