Clearwater Enterprises adds consulting services to its offerings

Sep. 7--Services offered by Clearwater Enterprises are deepening.

The company, which provides natural gas retail, marketing and management services to producers and to end-users and consumer clients, is adding energy consulting services to its offerings, it announced earlier this month.

Its new consulting services division, company officials said, will be led by Mike Boyd.

Under Boyd's leadership, the division will manage customers' energy usage, rates, market exposure and regulatory compliance through customized strategies. It also will offer its clients energy efficiency and management solutions.

Both Boyd, described as an industry veteran with more than 35 years of experience, and Tony Say, Clearwater's president, said they have worked alongside each other within the energy field for decades.

"Mike is a forward-thinking strategist with a wealth of industry knowledge," Say stated as part of a release announcing the company's expanded services. "Adding consulting services, with Mike at the helm, is a real win for us and our customers."

Boyd also brings to Clearwater Enterprises' clients considerable knowledge about the nation's electrical transmission and distribution systems.

Boyd said he worked as a consultant as part of a task force Oklahoma's Legislature created in 1999 to look at deregulating electricity.

"Although it is dated, it identifies all the components of how companies buy and transmit electricity," Boyd said.

"Just like natural gas has changed through the years, electric power and the way it is purchased is changing around the United States."

As for natural gas marketing, Boyd said he started in that business in Oklahoma City with the Resource Analysis & Management Group. Later, he established Boyd Rosene & Associates in Tulsa, which also did natural gas marketing, plus did consulting for national clients.

Like Say, Boyd also is in the exploration and production business for oil and natural gas, though he said this week that he no longer operates wells.

For about the past decade, Boyd has concentrated on regulatory matters, representing shippers on interstate pipelines before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Say said he expects the consulting arm of Clearwater will represent current and future clients in pipeline rate cases.

"We are looking forward to how Clearwater Services can be ahead of its customers' needs, and what we can tell them they can do to manage their businesses better," Boyd said. "That is the focus of what we are going to do."
