Heartland Energy Group, Inc. (Pink Sheets:HEGP) announced today that it has entered a distribution agreement with Crescent Oil. Under the terms of the agreement, Crescent Oil will service and supply Heartland Energy’s fuel station located in Broken Bow, Oklahoma.
Roy Thornhill stated: “This agreement will enable us to distribute our He85. We’re on the path to realizing our vision of creating dependence from foreign energy sources.”
The growing interest in ethanol, a clean, corn-based renewable resource, has paralleled the escalating price of gas and the urgent need to break the country's dependence on crude oil. Recently, the Big Three automobile manufacturers, GM (NYSE:GM), Ford (NYSE:F), and DaimlerChrysler (NYSE:DCX), appealed to Congress for incentives to increase the number of gas stations that offer blends of ethanol. President Bush responded by signing the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. Microsoft (NasdaqGS:MSFT) co-founder Bill Gates invested $84 million into Pacific Ethanol (NasdaqGM:PEIX). Vinod Khosla, "guru" of Silicon Valley, co-founder of Sun Microsystems (NasdaqGS:JAVA), and one of ethanol's most vocal advocates, has personally invested millions in private companies involved in the development of ethanol. The development of renewable energy resources has created enough buzz to force conventional gas and oil conglomerates such as Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM), Chevron (NYSE:CVX), and BP (NYSE:BP) to focus more on alternative energy solutions. Alternative energy companies like Archer Daniels Midland (NYSE:ADM) and Bunge Limited (NYSE:BG) have experienced some resistance in their respective markets due to the rise in feedstock costs.
