Shell and Travel Centers of America Open LNG Fueling Lanes in U.S.
May 05, 2014
Shell and Travel Centers of America opened their first two liquefied natural gas fueling lanes in the U.S. in Ontario, California. This station is the first of the Shell and TA agreement to sell LNG to heavy-duty road transport customers in the U.S. at TA and Petro fueling centers.
Demand for innovative fuels, like LNG fuel, from commercial customers is growing due to the wide range of benefits for trucking fleet operators.
These benefits can include lower fuel costs compared to conventional diesel, reduced noise levels for spark ignition engines and, for compression ignition engines, improved local air quality from reduced emissions at the point of use, particularly CO2 and methane greenhouse gas emissions.
