FAIRFIELD, TEXAS – Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has signed a 10-year agreement with Green Energy Oilfield Services, a major Texas truck transport provider, to build, supply, and maintain a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station at Green Energy headquarters in Fairfield, Texas.
The Clean Energy LNG station will fuel Green Energy's new fleet of 60 LNG-powered heavy-duty Peterbilt trucks, which will support Green Energy's oil production customers within a 100-mile radius of Fairfield, in the Freestone oil region of Central Texas. The trucks are anticipated to use approximately 1.2 million gallons of LNG annually.
Development of the new Green Energy Fairfield LNG station is set to begin in August 2012, with completion scheduled by the end of 2012. Green Energy's future plans include development of additional LNG truck fueling stations in the Barnett (Fort Worth), Haynesville (Marshall), and Eagle Ford Shale (Laredo) petroleum-producing areas of Texas.
Green Energy President and COO Roger Nevill said Green Energy is committed to acquiring and deploying fleets comprised exclusively of LNG-powered trucks.
