LITTLE ROCK, AK – March 19, 2013 – /PRNewswire/ – Alternative and renewable energy consulting group, Lee Enterprises is pleased to announce the formation of a strategic alliance with Murex LLC of Addison, Texas. Murex is a leading marketer and distributor of renewable fuels, methanol, Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) and crude oil, and has served major oil companies, regional refiners, and producers for more than 20 years.
“Murex has been a leader in this industry for many years,” says Lee Enterprises Consulting’s CEO, Wayne Lee. “They already supply methanol and provide other services to a large segment of our biodiesel clients. Murex recently formed a strategic relationship with Genscape, who was already our strategic partner with respect to RIN Integrity matters, so this new partnership between us and Murex closes the loop of necessary services for renewable fuels clients.” Lee notes that the new relationship allows Murex the ability to have his group of highly trained experts ready to assist with virtually any biofuels related matter, while allowing Lee Enterprises’ clients access to buy methanol and sell their RINs and biodiesel at competitive prices. Lee notes that another major factor in selecting Murex as a strategic partner was the fact that the company has processed 8.1 billion RINs under the Renewable Fuel Standard with 100% validity. “Anyone who knows this industry knows what that security means.”
Murex president, Robert C. Wright, is equally enthusiastic about what this new relationship means to the marketplace. “Lee Enterprises Consulting is the largest consulting group of its kind, and their depth of expertise and experience is really remarkable,” says Wright. “With our strategic relationship with Genscape, we became the first RIN marketer to promote QAP-A RINs, the most robust and worry-free RIN qualification system. The new relationship with Lee Enterprises provides our customers with quick access to engineering, design & fabrication, feedstock assistance, process safety management, appraisals, due diligence, plant sales, grants, and a variety of other services that are not part of our core competencies.” Wright went on to explain that the Murex reputation, with decades-long relationships, provides customers with a clear sense of security. “Moving forward with these alliances simply strengthens and expands upon our role in the past of supporting and educating our producers in any way we can so that they and our customers can sleep at night.”
