Walters said that to his knowledge, there is not an organized consortium of Oklahoma producers. He said he would try to contact two or three producers to form a financial consortium, which could contract directly with New York City to supply the fuel.

The governor, who had his own state vehicle converted to use compressed natural gas, is scheduled to be the first to draw gas today from a Phillips Petroleum CNG "fill" station at the Hoback Plaza on the Turner Turnpike near Stroud.

Also in New York, Walters said he called on a food processing company that is looking at Oklahoma for a plant expansion, with a potential for creating 200 jobs.

Other business contacts on the trip included Alan Greenburg, an investment banker with Bear, Stearns and Co., who has Oklahoma ties and is a benefactor of the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center; William Comfort, chairman of Citicorp Venture Capital Investors Ltd. …
