SEAL BEACH, CA − Clean Energy Fuels concludes the first stage of America's Natural Gas Highway (ANGH) this month with the completion of its LNG truck fueling station in Matthews, Mo.
ANGH is a network of liquefied natural gas (LNG) truck fueling stations to support long-haul, heavy-duty goods movement along major interstate corridors throughout the United States.
By the end of 2012, Clean Energy will have completed 70 new LNG truck fuel stations along highways that link major U.S. metropolitan areas. Many of these stations are located at existing Pilot-Flying J truck stops. Pilot is the nation's largest truck-stop operator with more than 550 retail properties in 47 states. In 2013, Clean Energy plans to build 70 to 80 additional LNG fuel stations adjacent to long-haul trucking routes and around major warehouse distribution centers in North America. Major highway segments now completed include, among others, those linking the Southwest Corridor, Los Angeles to Atlanta, The Texas Triangle, Atlanta to Chicago to Texas, and major corridors in the Midwest and Northeast.
Clean Energy noted that an iPhone app station locator will be available by the end of the year to complement its web-based locator at www.cnglngstations.com.
Clean Energy's ANGH stations are in addition to the ongoing CNG station building planned for the company's traditional markets in transit, refuse, airport/taxi/shuttle and local/regional trucking, which activity accounts for 60 station projects in 2012 and is expected to account for approximately the same number in 2013, according to Clean Energy.
