Halliburton has deployed 100 light-duty pickup trucks fueled by compressed natural gas (CNG). The company stated it purchased the bi-fuel models and is assigning the vehicles to 15 U.S. locations in Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, California, Louisiana, Utah, and Pennsylvania. According to the company, the vehicles will save approximately $5,100 per truck in fuel costs annually.
The company plans to study data from the pilot program to determine whether a larger rollout is feasible.
“With this pilot program we expect to obtain a wealth of information on what it would take to bring about a successful, broader adoption of CNG light duty vehicles across the company,” Halliburton Western Hemisphere President Jim Brown.
