On June 13, 2018, Encore President & CEO Ken Graeber spoke at the 34th Annual International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, NE. The expo was attended by 570 ethanol producers from North America, Europe and Asia. Attendance was said to be approximately 2,000 people. The 3-day meeting featured speakers on various aspects of ethanol production and management. Ken’s presentation was entitled “Preventing a Budget Blowout: Natural Gas Market Dynamics and Risk Management Strategies for Natural Gas Procurement”. Ken educated his audience regarding natural gas supply, demand, market dynamics and risk management strategies for ethanol plant operators. Among other things, Ken pointed out “many customers are afraid to take a position in the market, so they do nothing, but the reality is that they have already taken a position – they need gas for their facility so they are short to the market!”
