Shell has opened two additional lanes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling at TravelCenters of America truck fueling stations in Texas.
Located in San Antonio and Dallas, the lanes join LNG fueling locations Baytown, Texas and Lafayette, LA, that have opened this year.
Stabilis Energy is the first customer fueling their LNG-powered trucks at the San Antonio site, Shell said.
“I’m delighted to see LNG being offered at three stations in the Texas Triangle,” said Elen Phillips, Shell‘s vice president of fuels sales and marketing for North America. These stations are strategically located to support the network of interstate highways, reaching customers where they need it the most.”
As customer demand grows in the U.S., 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 US,” 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. We believe in the potential of LNG fuel becoming a bigger part of the marine and road transport fuel mix and continue to look at supply opportunities in the region.”
