Two Energy Concerns Take Center-Stage

For sure, energy was where it was at Thursday, as a glimmer of hope shone between oil behemoths the U.S. and Russia. The leaders of the two nations agreed to talk down the monster amount of production. The tidings led to energy sectors on both sides of the border climbing at least 8%

In the smaller-cap interests, Phoenix-based Taronis Fuels, Inc., (OTC:TRNF) told investors it’s advancing multiple new end market opportunities in Europe, the Middle East and Latin America for the use of the Company’s patented Venturi plasma arc gasification technology. Taronis produces the world’s only renewable and socially responsible metal cutting fuel, MagneGas.

TRNF’s mobile gasification unit scheduled for shipment to Turkey is being commissioned as fully operational in Clearwater, Florida this week, and should be in Turkey in 45 days. The unit was sold for $5 million to a business development firm that successfully arranged a 30 unit, $165 million contract for a country wide launch of MagneGas as a viable replacement in the Republic of Turkey.

Key Turkish officials and prospective gasification unit buyers from neighboring markets will observe a demonstration of the gas production process, as well as live demonstrations using MagneGas.

TRNF shares perked on the news, gaining 5.5% to $9.97 cents, on 1.6 million shares.
