Shell Opens Second LNG Truck Fueling Station in California
Shell celebrated the opening of new LNG lanes at a TravelCenters of America (TA) truck fueling station in Santa Nella, California. The new LNG station is the second in California for Shell and follows on the heels of the opening of LNG fueling lanes in Texas and Louisiana earlier this year. The station is strategically located along the interstate highway in Northern California, a region with heavy truck traffic. Shell’s first LNG fueling station in the US was opened in California in 2014. Since then, the network has now grown to seven sites across the US and Canada. This new station will provide LNG fueling service for operators out of Los Angeles (Ontario) up along the Highway 5 corridor.
“I am excited by the progress we have made in developing the LNG fueling network in the US,” said Elen Phillips, Shell’s Vice President Fuels Sales and Marketing for North America.
As customer demand grows in the US, Shell and TA plan to open additional truck fueling lanes. “Shell is committed to developing LNG as a fuel option for marine and road transport, and we continue to look at supply opportunities in the region in balance with demand,” said Christian Buelow, Shell’s General Manager Downstream LNG Americas.
