Shell Opens LNG Fueling Lanes at Two Truck Stations
Shell is now providing LNG at two additional TravelCenters of America (TA) truck fueling stations in Texas. These stations are located in San Antonio and Dallas and follow on the heels of the opening of Shell LNG fueling lanes in Baytown, Texas, as well as Lafayette, Louisiana, in March this year. The Baytown, San Antonio and Dallas stations are strategically located in the Texas Triangle, a region with heavy truck traffic. Stabilis Energy is the first customer and the anchor fleet fueling their LNG-powered trucks at the San Antonio site.
As customer demand grows in the US, Shell and TA plan to open additional truck fuelling lanes. “This is another step forward in providing LNG fuel supply to heavy-duty road customers in the U.S.,” said Shell’s Christian Buelow, Shell’s General Manager Downstream LNG Americas. “We expect the strengthening supply chain in North America to give customers reassurance that LNG is a viable fuel alternative to diesel today.”
Shell has an agreement with TA to develop a network of LNG fueling stations for heavy-duty road transport customers, with sites phased to customer demand. The first of these LNG fuelling stations was opened in May 2014 in Ontario, California.
