We are Linc Energy Systems, not the publicly listed Linc Energy
Recently someone posted a question on our Facebook page. It was, “Is this the energy company mentioned in an Australian news report causing an environmental catastrophe in the state of Queensland?”
We are not Linc Energy
Linc Energy is a publicly listed Australian energy company founded in 1996. It specializes in producing coal-based synthetic fuel along with conventional oil and gas. It has been involved in the development and commercialization of proprietary underground coal gasification technology. The company has headquarters in Brisbane, Queensland with operations in Australia, North America, the United Kingdom, Poland, South Africa, China, Vietnam, and Uzbekistan. In fact, they have operations in Denver, just miles from our location.
Linc Energy is in the news quite a bit lately. In 2014, the Australian government charged Linc Energy with alleged serious environmental harm stemming from their Chinchilla Facility. Linc Energy is defending these allegations.
Making a Measurable Difference
We are Linc Energy Systems, and there are significant differences between our two companies. Linc Energy Systems is a privately held, small, women-owned business founded in 1990. We are a manufacturers’ agent and distributor, as well as a contractor, and we focus our efforts on the natural gas industry. We specialize in natural gas measurement, the damage prevention of underground utilities and the odorization of natural gas.
Our headquarters are in Wheat Ridge Colorado, and we sell our products and services in the Western States and the Rocky Mountain States. We place great effort in selecting principals with products that make a difference in their functionality.
The answer to the question, of course, is that we are not and have no ties to Linc Energy except for our name. I chose the name in 1990, naming the business after my dog, Abraham Lincoln. That was before the Australian company was founded.
