Clean Energy Fuels, Pilot to Build More CNG/LNG Stations
SEAL BEACH, CA - Clean Energy Fuels Corp. said it has signed an agreement with Pilot Travel Centers LLC to build, own and operate public-access compressed and liquefied natural gas (CNG/LNG) fueling facilities at agreed-upon Pilot Flying J truck travel centers nationwide.
Pilot Flying J operates more than 550 truck travel centers in 43 states and six Canadian provinces. It is the largest truck-fueling operator in the country.
Clean Energy Fuels is a major natural gas fuel provider for transportation.
"With the availability of new class-8, 2010 EPA-compliant natural gas trucks from several major manufacturers, major regional and national trucking operators are considering the move to natural gas for their fleets to add fuel diversity, lower emissions and reduce dependence on imported oil," said Andrew J. Littlefair, Clean Energy president and CEO. "Partnering with Pilot Flying J will not only allow us to help meet the demand from these fleets, but will also enable us to begin creating a nationwide goods movement corridor for natural gas trucks."
